Security platform for the electronic tax return

On behalf of the Bavarian State Tax Office, secunet has implemented a new security platform for the ElsterOnline portal that meets high security requirements.


The solution supports authentication, encryption and electronic signature for web applications via certificate-based procedures. The use of these procedures opens up new convenient online paths for almost all tax-relevant areas, such as tax returns, wage tax card, income tax and tax account enquiries.
