How does the test card work?
The issued test cards have test certificates that are similar to real card certificates, but they cannot be used for giving digital signatures with legal force, because the cardholder does not exist in reality. Therefore SK does not issue validity confirmations to the given signatures. Test cards can be used against SK's test services. Additional information about testing can be found here.
SK issues test cards whose fictitious cardholder name contains the letters Ä or Ž in the UTF-8 coding. This way you can test the character support in your applications. You can access the user manual of the test card here:
The test certificates are valid for 3-5 years and their issuer is TEST of ESTEID-SK 2011 (issued by TEST of EE Certification Centre Root CA).
The test card have been issued to:
MÄNNIK, MARI-LIIS, 47101010033
ŽAIKOVSKI, IGOR, 37101010021
Cøntrolina Ålt-Deletè, 48908209998 ( e-resident )
Mâni Özer Erçetin, 36908209993 ( e-resident )
In order to be certain of the functionality of your applications, e-service and other solutions with ID cards of different generations, we recommend testing them in test-DigiDocService https://tsp.demo.sk.ee.
The price of a test card is EUR 32. E-Seal on a crypto stick is free, but you have to pay for the crypto stick. The crypto stick can later be used with the real stamp as well. See the price list here.
Using a test card in SK's test services is free of charge.
