Portuguese lawyers to use Setecs PKI solution for secure transactions

Friday 21 November 2003 20:44 CET | News

The Finnish smart card company Setec supplies over 30 000 PKI smart card modules for the smart card solution that every lawyer in Portugal is to start using during this autumn.

The smart cards are printed and personalized by the Portuguese Mint and Official Printing Office INCM. The technical support and the certificates are issued by the Portuguese Certificate Authority Multicert. Each member of the Portuguese Bar Association will receive a personalised smart card, a card reader and a driver software. The solution enables highly secure and confidential internet and e-mail communication between lawyers, the Court and other officials. Also the digital signing of official documents is possible with the card solution, and the card operates simultaneously as a strong visual identity document, too. The implementation of the solution can be done at the users own workstation. The card itself enables the use of the infrastructure anywhere where a driver and a card reader are installed.
