The Dutch government has set up this infrastructure in accordance with Dutch and European legislation. Private individuals and companies can use PKIoverheid for electronic signatures, electronic authentication, and reliable, confidential electronic data exchange.
As a Qualified Trust Service Provider, we issue personal certificates. With such a certificate, you can place qualified electronic signatures on digital documents. These e-signatures have the same legal effect as a handwritten signature. To issue personal qualified certificates, we have to comply with strict requirements regarding information security. This is how end-users can be sure of secure online business.
Qualified Electronic Signatures
A qualified electronic signature is a signature with a (PKIoverheid) certificate. This type of signature is not visible on a document. You check whether a document has been signed by performing a verification. The certificate that is connected to a qualified electronic signature can only be issued by certification service providers, like Cleverbase. That's why, on your personal PKIoverheid certificate, you will find the name Cleverbase. Here, you'll learn more about different types of electronic signatures.
