EMDE environments

Working environment

EMDE environment has open to the public portion. Anyone can log in by Estonian ID card and access it without previous registration. User rights for the system can be obtained by EMDE support persons. It is also possible to obtain a user name and password to log in easier without ID card. The standard way to obtain the rights is to send a digitally signed application to EMDE help desk, it should be signed by an authorized signatory. The respective addresses and forms are on EMDE login page.

NB! After the user attempts to login with a wrong password more then three times the system locks. But so locked system unlocks when user log in with an ID card. Of course user can also contact the help desk.

Training and test environment

It is currently not possible to log in by the ID card. It is possible to ask for a user name and password with the rights from EMDE support persons. Since this system has not been given access to the actual data then for every one who asks the access will be granted. All real system user names and passwords for the autumn of 2014 are entered there already.
