Certificate Policy/Programme of Requirements PKIoverheid

The Programme of Requirements (PoR) within the Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) for the Dutch government (PKIoverheid) contains the requirements stipulated by the PKIoverheid Policy Authority (PA) for all Trust Service Providers (TSPs) within PKIoverheid, and thus can be regarded as a Certificate Policy (CP) for those TSPs.

Current version

The current version of the PKIoverheid Programme of Requirements can be found below.

Historical versions

Historical versions of the PoR can be found below. These documents are provided to be compliant with Section 3.3 of the Mozilla Root Store Policy (MRSP)) which states:

7. CA operators SHALL maintain links to all historic versions of each CP and CPS (or CP/CPS) from the creation of included CA certificates, regardless of changes in ownership or control of such CA certificates, until the entire CA certificate hierarchies (i.e. end entity certificates, intermediate CA certificates, and cross-certificates) operated in accordance with such documents are no longer trusted by the Mozilla root store. For CA certificates that were included in Mozilla's root store before December 31, 2022, the CA Operator shall maintain links in their online repositories to all reasonably available historic versions of CPs and CPSes (or CP/CPSes) from creation of the included CA certificates.

All documents prior to v4.12 are semi-automated exports of documents signed off by Logius legal representatives. Version v4.12 of the PoR is the first version to unify the many different parts into one single document. Additionally versions prior to v4.12 were not designed to take the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) into account, however several WCAG optimizations were scripted into the export proces to improve accessibility through metadata. However, full compliance with the WCAG means having to change the textual contents as well, which goes against the purpose of making these documents available with authentic contents for audit purposes. Because these documents are of no administrative purpose anymore, as well as changing them going against the purpose of making them available in the first place, versions 4.7 through 4.11 will remain non-compliant with the WCAG. Documents prior to version 4.7 (i.e. originally published prior to September 23rd 2018) are not required to be Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) compliant. These are kept in their original PDF format.

However, people running into problems with accessibility regarding any of these documents can contact the PKIoverheid team using the contact link below. When contacted, the team will provide the desired information in a suitable format. Any accessibility enhancements made this way will be retrofitted on this website for future visitors, as long as they do not involve actual text updates.
