Certificates for website authentication

A certificate for website authentication means an attestation that makes it possible to authenticate a website and links the website to the natural or legal person to whom the certificate is issued.

Website authentication services provide a means by which a visitor to a website can be assured that there is a genuine and legitimate entity standing behind the website. Those services contribute to the building of trust and confidence in conducting business online, as users will have confidence in a website that has been authenticated.

Qualified certificates for website authentication can only be created by authorised qualified trust service providers the list whereof is available at www.elektroninisparasas.lt/EN, however, the service providers not having the “qualified” status that issue SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) certificates to establish the website authenticity have been popular so far.
