great success, #e_estonia: after 10 years of having a certificate on your ID card, you couldn’t convince the #banks operating in #Estonia that using them to communicate with clients securely.

All these banks have asked me to please not send encrypted documents as they are not able to decrypt them, all the while having publicly available certificates that are even specifically named “Document encryption” or similar:

  • SEB
  • LHV
  • Krediidipank

Notable exception so far, where the service agent offered their personal identity (which is fine as it confirms i am actually writing to the right person):

  • Nordea
  • Swedbank
