HID Global

HID Global®, a provider of trusted identity solutions, announces that its IdenTrust™ digital certificates are now certified members of the Adobe Approved Trust List (AATL) program, the world’s largest trust service for electronic documents.

AATL certification allows millions of users to create digital signatures that are automatically identified as being trusted whenever the document is signed with Adobe® Acrobat® DC, Acrobat Reader® DC or Adobe Sign.

Digital signature transactions

We are very pleased to be part of Adobe’s trust initiative for its ubiquitous Adobe Document Cloud solutions that are used to process more than six billion electronic and digital signature transactions each year,” said Brad Jarvis, vice president and managing director with HID Global, Identity and Access Management.

The digital signature can be validated each time the document is opened

When authors sign their Adobe documents with IdenTrust certificates, they can now provide recipients who open those documents using Adobe Acrobat and Acrobat Reader the confidence that the signatures can be trusted without requiring any specialised software or custom configuration.” When using Adobe Acrobat DC or Acrobat Reader for digital signing, the digital signature that has been created using an identity-based certificate can be validated each time the document is opened.

Trusted identity solutions

If multiple digital signatures are applied to the same document, each signature is validated independently when the document is accessed. In addition to confirming that users can trust the sender’s identity, the Adobe software also verifies that the IdenTrust credential was valid when the signature was applied and that any changes to the document met the document author’s specifications.

The digital Certification Authority, IdenTrust has more than 5.7 million certificates in active production and supports more than 18 billion validations per year. Its digital certificates establish the basis for trusted identity solutions recognised by financial institutions, healthcare providers, government agencies and enterprises around the world.
