Trust Service Provider - TSP (Dutch site)

The Trust Service Provider of the Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management is assosiated with the Public Key Infrastructure of the Dutch government. Currently the IenW TSP issues so called smartcards for use with the on-Board Computer Taxi (BCT).

These onboardcomputercards and system cards are issued with certificates from the hierarchy of the Public Key Infrastructure of the Dutch government (PKIoverheid). The onboardcomputercards are used to gain access to the onBoard Computer Taxi and to digitally sign the data gathered by the BCT. The system cards identify the on-board computer taxi and enables it to sign data.

CA certificates and CRL's

The IenW TSP issues two types of card. These are onboardcomputercards and systemcards. The onboardcomputercards are used by the different users of the onboard computer, while the systemcard is used by the device itself. The certificates on both types of card have their own Certification Authority (CA) hierarchy.

To verify the validity of a certificate requires at least the following checks are required:

  • the certificate must not be expired;
  • the CA hierarchy must lead to a valid PKIoverheid root CA certificate;
  • the certificate must not be revoked i.e. the certificate serialnumber must not be listed on the so called Certificate Revocation List (CRL).
