Verifying authenticity of electronically signed documents
Tampere Universities provide electronically signed documents, for example the certificate of study and transcript of records. You can verify the authenticity of electronically signed documents with the Atomi Validator service or by opening the document with Adobe Acrobat Reader DC software.
The default settings of Adobe Acrobat Reader DC do not identify the Population Register Centre’s root certificate and thus the software notifies that the signer is unknown. You can install the Population Register Centre’s root certificate according to these instructions:
- Download the root certificate on the Population Register Centre’s website: https://vrk.fi/en/ca-certificates
- Open Adobe Acrobat Reader DC
- Click Edit or Adobe Reader (OSX) » Preferences
- Select Signatures » Identities & Trusted Certificates » More
- Select Trusted Certificates » Import
- Click Browse and select the file you downloaded » Open
- Click the certificate you downloaded and then Trust
- Select Use this certificate as a trusted root » OK
- Now the software has installed the Popular Register Centre’s certificate and will in future trust signatures produced with the certificate.
