If you already have the T-CAT card in your hands and have received the PIN and PUK codes, you only need to configure your equipment to be able to use it.
Below we explain the different steps to follow:
The T-CAT works with the main operating systems and browsers on the market. If you have doubts, we recommend consulting the compatibility tables to ensure proper operation.
Public keys are necessary for browsers to verify that certificates have been issued by a trusted certification authority (in the case of T-CAT, the trusted authority is the AOC Consortium).
If this is your first time using a T-CAT, please download and install the AOC Consortium public keys .
In the case of the T-CAT, you need to install at least the "EC-ACC" and "EC - SectorPublic" keys.
For the operation of the T-CAT cards issued from 13/04/2023 (ie with the new cryptographic chip), the necessary software is the PKI Manager . Download PKI Manager software and manual depending on your computer's operating system. Please note that the installation requires computer administrator permissions.
Remember! From October 2023 this card will lose the status of qualified certificate and will be revoked. For more information you can consult Change in cards T-CAT.
From 04/13/2023 the cards we issue from the AOC Consortium no longer need this software. If you still have a card with this software and need to use it, download the Safesign software depending on your computer's operating system.
Note : This step is optional, you can use your T-CAT directly, but if you have any errors when using it, we recommend that you do the signature and operation tests.
Once the software required to use the T-CAT card has been installed, you just need to put it in the reader and check that it works properly .
