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

The main features of this service are as follows:

  • This system allows citizens over the age of 16 to act electronically before the Catalan public administrations with a medium level of security, in accordance with the provisions of 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 the user citizens, will be registered in the " Electronic Office of the Administration of the Generalitat de Catalunya ", which is owned by the Department of the Presidency, in order to leave reliable evidence of the link between the identified person and their mobile phone.
