HID Global's IdenTrust digital certificates are Included in Adobe service

HID Global®, a worldwide provider of trusted identity solutions, has announced 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, the company said.

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.

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. 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 world´s 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 recognized by financial institutions, healthcare providers, government agencies and enterprises around the world.

HID Global powers the trusted identities of the world´s people, places and things. Headquartered in Austin, Texas, HID Global has over 3,000 employees worldwide and operates international offices that support more than 100 countries. HID Global® is an ASSA ABLOY Group brand.
