1. Applying for a Digital Certificate
First, it is necessary to apply for a Digital Certificate that guarantees the security and confidentiality of the communication process.
The Digital Certificates that can be used on RED Direct are:
- Electronic DNI:
The electronic DNI must be applied for in person at the national police stations that are authorised to issue them.
The certificate is issued there and then.
- SILCON Certificate:
This certificate must be applied for in person in the Social Security Administration Offices or the Provincial Offices of the TGSS and INSS (check availability on e-Office > Digital Certificates), with the user presenting their identification document (DNI , NIE or passport).
The SILCON Certificate is issued in a sealed envelope together with a password which can be changed on the Social Security website.
