Verifying criminal records excerpts

Verifying a digital excerpt

A digitally signed electronic criminal records excerpt is a PDF document, to which an electronic cryptographical seal (qualified digital signature) has been applied. A digital signature must not be confused with a scanned signature made by hand on a document!

A qualified digital signature is a secure proof of the origin, the validity and the integrity of a digitally signed electronic document. Integrity means that it is easily visible if an electronic document has been modified after being signed.

Verifying a paper excerpt

You may verify the correctness of the contents of an excerpt containing no sentence(s) issued on original paper (or a copy thereof) or issued as printed, digitally signed electronic excerpt. All you have to do is enter a very few features of the excerpt; however, verification of excerpts is possible only if excerpts have been issued within the past six months.

Excerpts containing sentences may not be verified this way.
