Your questions for the verification service and download

How do I download the certificate?

When you enter the Security Code Verification must remember that the first three characters of the code are "SD"

Depending on the font, can be mistaken for the letters "i" capitalized with "ele" tiny and the number "1" and also the "zero" with "or" capital. EXAMPLE SD:jJi7-B6jl-OZ03-7E1I

The letter of the NIF / NIE / Passport must be written in uppercase. You must enter the same document using the application

3. Have a Virtual Java Machine installed

Step optimized for Java 7.x

In order to perform the request procedure, you must have the virtual Java machine installed on your browser if the service requires a digital signature.

To check the virtual Java machine you have installed and, if necessary, to upgrade it to a usable version, go to the following website:

On this page, click the “Verify Java version” button to find out which version you currently have and, where relevant, whether it is possible to upgrade this to the latest stable version compatible with this service. To be able to make requests requiring a digital signature, you could have to install a compatible version, available at:

We recommend you leave only one Java version and uninstall those that are not used in order to avoid possible incompatibility problems.

You can check the Virtual Java machine requirements at the link "Check that your computer meets the requirements necessary to carry out the procedure" associated with each process.
