Introduction

ITU and ISO issued standards for certification of public keys in Recommendation ITU X.509 | ISO/IEC 9594-8 [i.3]

which are used for the security of communications and data for a wide range of electronic applications.

Regulation (EU) No 910/2014 [i.9] of the European Parliament and of the Council of 23 July 2014 on electronic

identification and trust services for electronic transactions in the internal market and repealing Directive 1999/93/EC

defines requirements on specific types of certificates named "qualified certificates". Implementation of Directive

1999/93/EC [i.1], superseded by the Regulation (EU) No 910/2014 [i.9], and deployment of certificate infrastructures

throughout Europe as well as in countries outside of Europe, have resulted in a variety of certificate implementations for

use in public and closed environments, where some are declared as qualified certificates while others are not.

Applications need support from standardized and interoperable identity certificate profiles, in particular when

applications are used for electronic signatures, authentication and secure electronic exchange in open environments and

international trust scenarios, but also when certificates are used in local application contexts.

This multi-part deliverable aims to maximize the interoperability of systems issuing and using certificates both in the

European context under the Regulation (EU) No 910/2014 [i.9] and in the wider international environment.

The present document provides an overview of the Recommendation ITU-T X.509 | ISO/IEC 9594-8 [i.3] based

certificate profiles and the statements for EU Qualified Certificates specified in other parts of ETSI EN 319 412 ([i.4] to

[i.7]). It specifies common data structures that are referenced from other parts of ETSI EN 319 412 ([i.4] to [i.7]).

The profiles specified in this multi-part deliverable aim to support both the Regulation (EU) No 910/2014 [i.9] and use

of certificates in a wider international context. Within the European context, it aims to support both EU Qualified

Certificates and other forms of certificate.

Introduction

ITU and ISO issued standards for certification of public keys in Recommendation ITU X.509 | ISO/IEC 9594-8 [i.3]

which are used for the security of communications and data for a wide range of electronic applications.

Regulation (EU) No 910/2014 [i.9] of the European Parliament and of the Council of 23 July 2014 on electronic

identification and trust services for electronic transactions in the internal market and repealing Directive 1999/93/EC

defines requirements on specific types of certificates named "qualified certificates". Implementation of Directive

1999/93/EC [i.1], superseded by the Regulation (EU) No 910/2014 [i.9], and deployment of certificate infrastructures

throughout Europe as well as in countries outside of Europe, have resulted in a variety of certificate implementations for

use in public and closed environments, where some are declared as qualified certificates while others are not.

Applications need support from standardized and interoperable identity certificates profiles, in particular when

applications are used for electronic signatures, authentication and secure electronic exchange in open environments and

international trust scenarios, but also when certificates are used in local application contexts.

This multi-part deliverable aims to maximize the interoperability of systems issuing and using certificates both in the

European context under the Regulation (EU) No 910/2014 [i.9] and in the wider international environment.

The present document provides an overview of the Recommendation ITU-T X.509 | ISO/IEC 9594-8 [i.3] based

certificate profiles and the statements for EU Qualified Certificates specified in other parts of ETSI EN 319 412 ([i.4] to

[i.7]). It specifies common data structures that are referenced from other parts of ETSI EN 319 412 ([i.4] to [i.7]).

The profiles specified in this multi-part deliverable aim to support both the Regulation (EU) No 910/2014 [i.9] and use

of certificates in a wider international context. Within the European context, it aims to support both EU Qualified

Certificates and other forms of certificate.
