About Certificates

  • The personal certificate is a file which may be stored on a portable media (floppy disk, USB flash disk or CD) or on a smart card. If you use the smart card, you have to install a reader.

  • The Personal certificate is similar to an identity card. Clients prove their identity with the certificate when communicating electronically. Every KB client who wants to access his/her accounts via the Internet will receive his/her own personal certificate for this purpose.

  • Personal certificates in files are valid for 2 years, while certificates on smart cards are valid for 2 years. You can extend the validity electronically within 90 days before the expiry date.

  • The company's certificate in the file is used to secure communications during automatic download of account data and payment card acceptance statements using the Direct Channel, and to secure communications between your online store and MojePlatba.

Useful information

How to receive personal certificate?

  • Visit the branch of Komerční banka which operates your accounts and conclude the appropriate contract there. Subsequently, at home you can download your functional personal certificate from the Certification wizard.

A single personal certificate enables you to access all KB direct banking services. Therefore, if you use both MojeBanka and Profibanka, you will use only one certificate when communicating with the bank.
