An Electronic Certificate, also known as a digital certificate, is issued by a reliable third-party (a Certification Authority). This certificate securely links the identity of an individual or organization to their public key, thus verifying their identity unequivocally.


An X509v3 digital certificate, used by web browsers, contains the following information:

Identification of the certificate holder:

Name, address, etc.
Public key of the certificate holder.
Validity date.
Serial number.
Identification of the issuer of the certificate.


Digital certificates have the same legal validity as an in-person ID presentation, like a DNI, when it comes to verification.

You can find out about electronic signatures, how to obtain one, and more on the National Currency and Stamp Factory (FNMT-RCM) CERES website. Each certificate is acquired in accordance with the issuing authority's particular requirements.


The DNI electronic certificate and the FNMT-issued certificate are the most common ones. To get your e-DNI, visit any office that issues the National Identity Document or SUMA in Valencian Community. To get the FNMT issued certificate please use the link.

Correct, the digital certificate in Spain is something you really want to have once you touch Spanish bureaucracy. It helps with almost any kind of operation or/and procedure you may want to do related to the Government Authorities and Institutions.
