Abstract

Disclosed is a mechanism for importing a governmental office's certificate to JRE running on applicant's PC. In an online application system that Japanese government promotes, a digital signature is necessary for an XML application form. When the applicant applies online from a browser, usually a signed applet is used for a digital signature. To keep this signed applet to be browser independent, JRE, which runs as a broswer plug-in, is used in general.
