CSCA Public Key Certificate Information
The distinguished name of the Hellenic CSCA is:

C=GR, O=Hellenic Republic, CN=CSCA-HELLAS, E= csca@passport.gov.gr

The CSCA uses two types of key pairs:

  • a main key pair,
  • a number of backup key pairs.

The main key pair is used to issue Document Signer certificates. Backup key pairs are only used for disaster-recovery, in the unlikely case that the main key pair becomes unusable. In such an occurrence, the first backup key pair will become the new main key pair, etc.

DER encoded certificates for the CSCA public keys can be found through the following links. Further information required to verify the authenticity of the following certificates is also available in authentic printed form upon request.
