PSD2: Digital certificates for strong authentication and encryption
Every business planning to become a Third Party Provider (TPP) or Payment Service Provider (PSP) according to the new PSD2 Payment Services Directive (EU dIRECTIVE 2015/2366) is required to use digital certificates created specifically for PSD2 to safeguard information security.
Buypass is a eIDAS Qualified Trust Service Provider (TSP). We issues qualified certificates as specified in the "PSD2 Regulatory Technical Standards (RTS) for strong customer authentication and common and secure open standards of communication". The RTS requires use of Qualified Certificate for Electronic Seal (QC eSeal) and Qualified Website Authentication Certificate (QWAC) issued according to the ETSI TS 119 495 standard.
