User certificates - new application procedure through change of provider

User certificates can now be obtained via TCS Sectigo. This changes the application procedure. The previous application procedure (DFN-PKI) is only possible until 29.08.2023.

The application procedure for user certificates has changed. These are now requested from TCS Sectigo. The TCS (Trusted Certificate Service) is a PKI offering that the DFN-Verein procures via GÉANT. GÉANT realizes the service with the help of external providers, which are found via regular tenders. The current provider is Sectigo.
