New Timestamping Certificate in November 2022

SwissSign operates a timestamping service according to the requirements of the Swiss signature law ZertES. In line with best practice, the certificate for this service is renewed periodically, i.e. annually. This renewal will be carried out in November 2022. The certificate will be issued according to the same parameters as last year's, i.e.:

  • Issued by the same CA, i.e. the "SwissSign Qualified TSA ICA 2021 - 1".
  • The same cryptographic parameters, i.e. containing an RSA key of 4096 bits in length.
  • According to the same format.


So nothing changes except that a new key pair and a new certificate are used.
