Certification services

Certification services

The certification services in social welfare and healthcare services are used for certifying a service provider’s server or service and for enabling reliable authentication of individuals as well as electronic signatures.

The certificates granted by the Digital and Population Data Services Agency, which are required in the use of the Kanta Services, include:

  • a server certificate installed in the Kanta access point.
  • a system signature certificate for signing all documents sent to Kanta that have not been signed with a professional’s certificate.
  • a professional card for social welfare and healthcare services that enables identification and electronic signing by professionals. 

More detailed information about the certification services is available in Finnish and Swedish as the service is only available in these languages.
