Title Electronic Signatures and Infrastructures (ESI); Pre-study on certificate profiles
Prestudy on certificate profiles 
Scope and Field
of Application
ETSI TC ESI has remarked that existing certificate profiles, among them TS 101 862 [6], are considered too open, allowing too many choices, which lead to incompatible implementations. It has then agreed to launch a pre-study to assess the preconditions for an action to further profile the certificate formats.
The purpose of this study is to cover, but not be limited to, qualified certificates.
The main finding of this study is that more rigid profiles are deemed necessary to actually achieve interoperability and, therefore, “to ensure the free movement within the internal market and to build trust in electronic signature”.
Therefore the next step should be to issue a Technical Standard specify the full format of a Qualified Certificate both from an issuer point of view and from a verifier point of view. Formats for “citizen” certificates (Electronic Identity Certificates) could also be indicated.
