    What is the Electronic DNI?

    The Electronic National Identity Document (eID) is the document that proves the personal identity of its owner physically and digitally and allows documents to be signed digitally.
    Its main advantage is that, as well as identifying the user to third parties, it allows the use of an electronic signature. The new DNI  provides security, speed, ease of use and the immediate realization of administrative and business procedures using telematic media.   

    An electronic chip holds the same data that are printed on the physical ID card (personal information, photograph, digitised signature and digitised finger print) plus the Authentication and Electronic Signature certificates.

    The electronic certificates on the chip are valid for 30 months. After this time, new certificates can be requested but keeping the same ID card information, if this document is still valid.

    With an eID we can guarantee the identity of the parties in an on-line communication, whether it be to exchange information, have access to data, to make Internet purchases or to make transactions through a bank or with the civil service. It also gives us a better way to manage access to the workspace, to a PC and to the information that it contains.

    You can find more information on the electronic DNI on the following web site, owned by the Ministry of the Interior: http://www.dnielectronico.es
