Before you proceed you must do

  • IMPORTANT : In the information message "Please enter the master password for InfoNotary", enter your PIN code.
  • IMPORTANT : Firefox and Thunderbird use direct access to the smart card. When you have successfully installed your certificates, you SHOULD NOT delete them from there, as this will also delete the certificate, along with the private and public keys on the smart card. After that, the certificate cannot be restored and a new one must be issued.
  • IMPORTANT : In order to use your certificate with Firefox and Thunderbird, the reader must be on your computer before opening the program.
