Once you have received a certificate for digital transmission in your Digital Post, you can see the signature at the top of a blue bar above the certificate when you open the certificate.
Please note: The digital signature is ONLY visible when you open the certificate in Adobe Acrobat Reader.
You CANNOT see the signature when you open the certificate in a browser.
You must do the following when you receive the certificate in Digital Post:
1. Download the certificate
2. Find the certificate in your folder "Downloads"
3. Then right-click and click "Open with"
4. Choose the Adobe Acrobat Reader application
When the certificate has been retrieved and opened, the signature will appear in a blue bar above the certificate, as shown in the example below.
Please note: If you have not yet set up your Adobe Acrobat Reader application to recognize the certificate from the Danish Ministry of Urban, Rural and Ecclesiastical Affairs, the text "There is a problem with at least one signature" is displayed. However, it is important to point out that the signature IS valid, and the certificate is therefore also valid.
How to change the certificate as being 'valid'
You can yourself make sure that the function certificate of the Danish Ministry of Urban, Rural and Ecclesiastical Affairs is changed in your Adobe Acrobat Reader application so that all future certificates from the ministry are immediately displayed as valid. Note that the change has no impact on the certificate itself and its validity.
- Click on the "Signaturpanel" ("Signature panel") button in the right side of the top blue bar, and you will see that the certificate has been signed by the Danish Danish Ministry of Urban, Rural and Ecclesiastical Affairs with the abbreviation "KM-Attest".
- Click the small [+] to view details and to indicate trust in the certificate. Here is an example of an English version. Click on "Signature Details".
- Then click the "Trust" tab.
Click on the "Add to trusted Certificates" button and then click OK to trust the certificate.
