idCAT Mòbil is the citizen-oriented user authentication and electronic signature service based on the sending of single-use passwords to their mobile phone that the AOC Consortium offers to the Public Sector of Catalonia as an alternative to the use of digital certificates. The mobile idCAT is a safe and free system that does not require the installation of any software or remembering any passwords.

The main features of this service are the following:

  • This system allows citizens over the age of 16 to act electronically before Catalan public administrations with a medium level of security, in accordance with what is established in Annex II of the National Security Scheme (RD 3/2010) . This level of security will depend on the procedure used during the user registration phase.
  • It offers an ordinary signature system that links the identity of the signatory to a document and guarantees its integrity.

The identity data, electronic contact of citizens and citizens users, will be registered in the " Electronic Headquarters of the Administration of the Generalitat de Catalunya ", which is owned by the Department of the Presidency, in order to leave a reliable record of the link between the identified person and their mobile phone.
