Lithuanian regulator extends validity of e-signature certificates from SSC

Thursday 8 March 2018 | 16:30 CET | News

Lithuanian national telecommunications regulator RRT has extended the validity term of e-signature certificates issued by Skaitmeninio Sertifikavimo Centras (SSC), belonging to the Penki Kontinentai group. Users of the certificates from SSC need to change their current certificates to the certificates from other providers until 11 May. 

The earlier, also extended, deadline was 12 March, but the watchdog received information that some users might be unable to get new certificates by then.  

The regulator had earlier annulled the status of the entity issuing electronic signature certificates for SSC. The decision was taken because SSC hasn‘t provided the watchdog with proof that it complied to new requirements of the EU regulation.
