Electronic Signatures and Infrastructures (ESI) - Certificate Profiles - Part 2: Certificate profile for certificates issued to natural persons

The present document specifies requirements on the content of certificates issued to natural persons. This profile builds
on IETF RFC 5280 [1] for generic profiling of Recommendation ITU-T X.509 | ISO/IEC 9594-8 [i.3].
This profile supports the requirements of EU Qualified Certificates as specified in the Regulation (EU)
No 910/2014 [i.5] as well as other forms of certificate. The scope of the present document is primary limited to
facilitate interoperable processing and display of certificate information. This profile therefore excludes support for
some certificate information content options, which can be perfectly valid in a local context but which are not regarded
as relevant or suitable for use in widely deployed applications.
The present document focuses on requirements on certificate content. Requirements on decoding and processing rules
are limited to aspects required to process certificate content defined in the present document. Further processing
requirements are only specified for cases where it adds information that is necessary for the sake of interoperability.
Certain applications or protocols impose specific requirements on certificate content. The present document is based on
the assumption that these requirements are adequately defined by the respective application or protocol. It is therefore
outside the scope of the present document to specify such application or protocol specific certificate content.

Introduction

ITU and ISO issued standards for certification of public keys in Recommendation ITU-T 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.5] 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] 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 identity certificate profiles, in particular when applications are used for

digital 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.5] and in the wider international environment.

1 Scope

The present document specifies requirements on the content of certificates issued to natural persons. This profile builds

on IETF RFC 5280 [1] for generic profiling of Recommendation ITU-T X.509 | ISO/IEC 9594-8 [i.3].

This profile supports the requirements of EU Qualified Certificates as specified in the Regulation (EU)

No 910/2014 [i.5] as well as other forms of certificate. The scope of the present document is primary limited to

facilitate interoperable processing and display of certificate information. This profile therefore excludes support for

some certificate information content options, which can be perfectly valid in a local context but which are not regarded

as relevant or suitable for use in widely deployed applications.

The present document focuses on requirements on certificate content. Requirements on decoding and processing rules

are limited to aspects required to process certificate content defined in the present document. Further processing

requirements are only specified for cases where it adds information that is necessary for the sake of interoperability.

Certain applications or protocols impose specific requirements on certificate content. The present document is based on

the assumption that these requirements are adequately defined by the respective application or protocol. It is therefore

outside the scope of the present document to specify such application or protocol specific certificate content.

Intellectual Property Rights
Essential patents

IPRs essential or potentially essential to normative deliverables may have been declared to ETSI. The information

pertaining to these essential IPRs, if any, is publicly available for ETSI members and non-members, and can be found

in ETSI SR 000 314: "Intellectual Property Rights (IPRs); Essential, or potentially Essential, IPRs notified to ETSI in

respect of ETSI standards", which is available from the ETSI Secretariat. Latest updates are available on the ETSI Web

server (https://ipr.etsi.org/).

Pursuant to the ETSI IPR Policy, no investigation, including IPR searches, has been carried out by ETSI. No guarantee

can be given as to the existence of other IPRs not referenced in ETSI SR 000 314 (or the updates on the ETSI Web

server) which are, or may be, or may become, essential to the present document.

Introduction

ITU and ISO issued standards for certification of public keys in Recommendation ITU-T 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.

ETSI
---------------------- Page: 4 ----------------------
5 Draft ETSI EN 319 412-2 V2.1.3 (2020-04)

Regulation (EU) No 910/2014 [i.5] 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] 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 identity certificates profiles, in particular when applications are used for

digital 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.5] and in the wider international environment.

1 Scope

The present document specifies requirements on the content of certificates issued to natural persons. This profile builds

on IETF RFC 5280 [1] for generic profiling of Recommendation ITU-T X.509 | ISO/IEC 9594-8 [i.3].

This profile supports the requirements of EU Qualified Certificates as specified in the Regulation (EU)

No 910/2014 [i.5] as well as other forms of certificate. The scope of the present document is primary limited to

facilitate interoperable processing and display of certificate information. This profile therefore excludes support for

some certificate information content options, which can be perfectly valid in a local context but which are not regarded

as relevant or suitable for use in widely deployed applications.

The present document focuses on requirements on certificate content. Requirements on decoding and processing rules

are limited to aspects required to process certificate content defined in the present document. Further processing

requirements are only specified for cases where it adds information that is necessary for the sake of interoperability.

Certain applications or protocols impose specific requirements on certificate content. The present document is based on

the assumption that these requirements are adequately defined by the respective application or protocol. It is therefore

outside the scope of the present document to specify such application or protocol specific certificate content.
