ICEX systems work in real time and the transactions that are carried out are verified and validated, including checking the revocation lists of recognized authorized certification entities.
Information confidentiality is guaranteed as it is encrypted by SSL with the protocol https. Information encryption prevents unauthorized people from accessing the data that is sent. A certificate issued for ICEX by the Royal Mint is used for the encryption, so citizens and companies can be sure that they have actually connected to ICEX. This security certificate guarantees data protection with the latest encryption technology. These strict measures require the use of browsers that support 128-Bit encryption.
For the signature processes, ICEX recognizes the use of standard X.509 certificates issued by recognized certification authorities in accordance with Spanish legislation. 1024-bit RSA protocols are used as systems that enable the digital signing of information, and the SHA-1 protocol is used to generate digital fingerprints (HASH).
