Other Services - API Certificate

Option through which you can upload a Public Key, which can be used for “signature verification” within the Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) context and if necessary revoke it, any time you wish.

 What are APIs?

 APIs are defined interfaces through which interactions happen between an enterprise and other applications that use its assets, such as the 1bank Internet/Mobile Banking.

 Bank of Cyprus has developed APIs in 1Bank to enable customers’  internal systems to simply and securely connect to the 1bank Internet Banking, for downloading or uploading massive amount of data.   Upon development of the interface from the enterprise’s side, the nominated subscriber can use this option to upload the Public Key which will be used for the JWT signature verification.

 If you or your company is interested in using APIs, contact our Call Centre.
