Web services are intended for unified treatment of digital certificates of all registered certificate authorities in Slovenia (HALCOM-CA, AC NLB, SIGEN, POŠTARCA, SIGOV-CA) as they offer a universal interface for the following:
Checking of digital certificate status (valid, revoked etc.)
Checking data on holder and on company of digital certificate (holder’s or company’s tax number)
Getting information on holder and on company of digital certificate
Web service enables that applications for e-business are independent from specifics of different agencies for issuing digital certificates.
