Certificats PRIVATE & PRO
The LuxTrust solutions function on the basis of personal authentication certificates provided by LuxTrust in its capacity as a certification authority. It is thanks to such certificates that LuxTrust guarantees the identity of the person who, via one of these products, is connected to an online application for performing electronic operations.
Those certificates are issued in the name of an individual. It is not possible to issue a single name for a legal entity. But it is however possible to issue certificates for an individual who represents a legal entity.

PRIVATE certificates, for individuals
Smartcards issued on behalf of an individual as a private person. This means that the certificate holds only information about the person itself. Any transaction made with the Smartcard, whether it is an authentication or an electronic signature, is made as a private person.
PRO certificates, for agents of a company
These Smartcards are issued to a person as an employee or agent of a company. The certificates holds information about the cardholder but also the details of the company which he is commissioned to. Any operation, authentication or signature made with the Smartcard is passed as an employee or agent of the company.
The company must agree to that person to obtain such a card. Smartcards also permit the company to appoint a person as "professional administrator" at the request of the certificate. This person can then block any other card issued on behalf of the company without the prior consent of the owner.
These certificates are destined to be uses in strictly professional context, like online banking accounts management through Multiline or for online VAT declarations (eTVA), etc.
