What are the uses of elektroninis.lt?

Identify, sign electronic documents, approve financial transactions and more.
  • Identify. Log in to e-banking systems, e-government service portals or other online information systems with elektroninis.lt. Make sure to remember your elektroninis.lt password (sPIN) and in the future you will no longer need to create or change your passwords or ask to be reminded of forgotten ones.
  • Sign electronic documents. After you sign a document with your elektroninis.lt signature and transmit it electronically, you will no longer need to run from one authority to another with paper-printed documents. State and municipal authorities must respond to e-signed and electronically (for example, by e-mail) submitted documents in the same way as to paper-printed ones. E-signed contracts in digital format (for example, in the widespread PDF format) have the same force and effect as paper-printed and hand-signed ones. A digital document, signed with the electronic signature of a company’s or organization’s representative, has the same legal force and effect as a paper-printed and hand-signed one, confirmed by the official stamp of that company or organization.
  • Approve financial transactions. For execution of payment orders in e-banking systems, you can use the elektroninis.lt e-signature, which is equivalent to a code card or a code generator.

Elektroninis.lt for school pupils

An equivalent of a mobile e-signature for persons under the age of 18 years.
  • Elektroninis.lt for school pupils is an equivalent of mobile e-signatures of the State Enterprise Centre of Registers that has been designed especially for persons under the age of 18 years.  Young people will be able to use it to confirm their identity when logging in to electronic services; however, they won’t be able to use it for signing electronic documents.
  • By using the tool designed especially for them, school pupils will have the possibility to identify themselves in cyberspace – i.e. confirm their identity when logging in to electronic services intended for them. Normally, the e-signature contains a pair of two certificates: one is used for identification and the other – for signing. Elektroninis.lt for school pupils contains only one certificate for authentication. School pupils are not entitled to conclude any contracts, therefore they do not need to use e-signatures. All they need is identification on the Internet.
  • Elektroninis.lt for school pupils is issued at any point of sale of mobile communications operator Tele2 only to users of the Pildyk prepaid service.
  • Underage school pupils need to go to any Tele2 point of sale together with one of their parents. Elektroninis.lt for school pupils will be issued when both the parent and the child submit their personal identification documents – a passport or an ID card. The child's birth certificate is also required.

  • The cryptographic USB token is manufactured in a way so as to be completely protected against attempts to hack in and modify the digital certificates recorded into it.
  • The multi-sign feature allows, upon a single activation of the e-signature, to sign several or even several tens of documents in a row.
  • The USB token works on computers running on Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 10 operating systems. In order to use elektroninis.lt in the USB token, it is necessary to prepare a computer.

IMPORTANT:
  • In early August 2017, the State Enterprise Centre of Registers started distributing a new model of USB (Gesiecke & Devrient) tokens (see picture), which work properly only with Windows operating systems that are newer than Windows XP (i.e. new Gesiecke & Devrient USB tokens do not work on computers running on Windows XP). In order to use elektroninis.lt in the USB token, it is necessary to prepare a computer.
  • ONLY old models of USB (Gesiecke & Devrient) tokens (see picture) work on computers running on Windows XP. In this case, you need to prepare your computer on your own. Click this link for more information. Old models of USB tokens also work with newer versions of the Windows operating system.
