Digital certificates

A digital certificate is a digital data record that proves the authenticity and integrity of a person, an organisation or a computer based on cryptographic procedures. This results in various fields of application for the protection of confidential and sensitive data. For example, the use of a digital signature makes it possible to precisely trace the sender of a piece of information and its integrity.

Wismar UAS uses the public key infrastructure of the DFN-Verein to issue corresponding certificates for its employees.
