Explanation of access settings

The OTE system supports two ways to log in to the system:

  • Local storage with certificates
  • OTE PKI component

Local certificate storage is intended for users who have a certificate installed on their device/PC and it is exportable (i.e. they have a backup of the certificate in .pfx or .p12 format).

It can be set up in any web browser and works by matching the private part of the certificate to the local store. It is also designed for setting up/pairing the POZE or VDT Electricity/Gas mobile application.

The local certificate store can be set up in any web browser and operating system.

The OTE PKI component is intended for users who have a certificate on a smart card, token, or do not have an exportable certificate. The component needs to be downloaded, installed and then paired with a web browser.

Once paired, the component will mediate all the certificates you have on your device/PC and allow you seamless access to the OTE system.

However, the component must always be installed and running. If it is switched off/uninstalled, the component will also be unpaired and access will be inoperative.

The component is designed for Windows operating system only.
