New ID-card software DigiDoc4 available
RIA has developed new DigiDoc software. We recommend starting using DigiDoc4 by the end of 2018 at the latest. DigiDoc3 cannot be used for signing documents from 1 January 2019 due to outdated software; neither will it support the new ID-card to be issued at the end of 2018 or the beginning of 2019.
The new ID-card software DigiDoc4 combines the current three applications into one application, where it is possible to carry out all activities related to the ID-card: give digital signatures, encrypt documents, and change PINs.
As of June 2018, DigiDoc3 will be automatically updated to DigiDoc4.
To ensure a smooth transition, the current DigiDoc3 application will remain available on the computers. However, the main version of the software will be DigiDoc4. This means that digitally signed documents will automatically be opened in the new application.
DigiDoc3 will be removed from the computers of home users with the next update of the ID-card application.
