Test Your Card Reader

The Population Register Centre’s test service may be used with all certificates issued by the Population Register Centre. You can test the provision of an electronic signature in the service. Prior to testing the certificates, a card reader and card reader software (e.g. mPollux Digisign Client or similar) need to be installed in the workstation.

Using the test service

  • Place the card in the card reader
  • Open the test service: https://vrk.fineid.fi
  • The server will request confirmation of the certificate used in the logging in, choose OK
  • Enter the PIN1 code and choose OK
  • You are logged into the test service

If you enter your PIN code incorrectly five times, the ID card's identification certificate will be locked out. Organization card PUK codes are usually maintained by the organization's head of security.
