European Trust Service Provider, Athex, uses Smart ID Certificate Manager for its certificate services
Nexus Smart ID enables trusted identities for several Trust Service Providers and is proud to include Athex on this list. Athex is an eIDAS certified Trust Service Center established by the Athens Exchange S.A. providing a public-key infrastructure (PKI) in order to work as an accredited Certificate Authority (CA) provider.
Athex digital certificate services are based on Nexus’ Smart ID Certificate Manager, enabling certificates for digital signatures, website authentication and more.
As a trusted advisor for the Greek government including the ministry of digitalization and ministry of finance, Athex supports numerous digitalization projects including the implementation of a digital process to sign documents digitally.
Certificates for the Greek Government Tachograph Project
As an official trust center for the Greek government, Athex is also providing certificates for their new tachograph project. Nexus is proud to enable this via the Smart ID platform.
In accordance with European law freight and passenger transport operators must use digital/smart tachographs. A tachograph is a device which is fitted to a vehicle that automatically records its speed, driving time, distance and other driver data. The digital tachograph system is based on PKI technology.
Every driver in Greece will receive a smart card which is inserted into a tachograph. Athex is delivering over 20.000 certificates over a 2-year period.
The smart tachograph project offers an exceptionally high level of security making fraud more difficult, reducing administrative burden and reducing accidents amongst commercial vehicles due to fatigue.
This tachograph project is led by Lykos and Athex.
