SuisseID Digital passport and signature

Steps to your SuisseID

Unlock/PUK

Each SuisseID contains a chip with two different certificates:

  1. Login certificate for secure login: If the password (PIN) is entered incorrectly three times, SuisseID is blocked for security reasons. You can unlock your authentication certificate.
  2. Qualified certificate for signature: If the password (PIN) is entered incorrectly three times, SuisseID is blocked permanently for the signing function for legal reasons. If you still want to sign, you have to purchase a new SuisseID.

 

PUK functionality

The PUK can unblock a blocked login certificate, but for security reasons not a blocked qualified certificate.
