SSL server certificates

SK updated the service for issuing SSL server certificates

What is SSL server certificate?

The SSL server certificate is issued to the HTTPS server and it certifies the authenticity of the owner of the web server. The SSL server certificate is located in the user’s web server and ensures a secure Internet connection. If the customer's web browser contacts a web server that is equipped with an SSL server certificate, it will encrypt the connection.

An SSL server certificate on the Internet is a sign of trust. An issued SSL server certificate means that the owner has been identified. In the event of ordering the certificate, Sertifitseerimiskeskus verifies, whether the website for which the certificate is requested belongs to the given institution and whether the person has the right to order the certificate on behalf of the institution.

The root certificate of Sertifitseerimiskeskus has been officially recognised in most widely used web browsers such as Internet Explorer, Mozilla, Safari and Chrome. Negotiations with Opera, Java and mobile web browsers are in progress.


Examine the documents applicable for web servers – the Policies and Conditions for Use.

An application for the certificate can be submitted in the e-service environment and the certificate will be issued within 2-5 working days.

Create a certificate application file (CSR) for the web server for which you require the certificate. More specific instructions can be found in the software documentation of your web server. If you are not administering your web server yourself, contact the server host or the service provider and they will create the CSR file on your behalf.
