The Validator is offered in two modes :

  • Through web services : the Validator is a service that is designed to be used from the various applications or services offered by other public administrations. In this sense, to make use of the service, it is necessary to carry out an integration between the application or service of the user administration and the Validator. The Validator has a messaging protocol that defines what business requests should look like and allows the service's responses to be interpreted.
    This modality requires technical resources from the body to develop web services. To facilitate the integration work, the following documentation is offered:

  • Through a consultation website : This modality does not require any technical development on the part of the body and, therefore, can be put into service quickly. It allows the most common requests to be made to the service, such as for example validating a digital certificate, by means of a Validator query website .
