Adobe Systems Incorporated and GeoTrust, Inc. announced the availability of a jointly-developed certified document service or “CDS” solution. Now, people who receive certified Adobe PDF files can be automatically assured that the author’s identity has been verified by a trusted organization, and that the document has not been altered. Through the reach of the free Adobe Reader organizations can use the new GeoTrust True Credentials digital signing solution for creating trusted electronic documents to conduct business and communicate with customers, constituents, partners and suppliers. CDS signing significantly raises the level of document integrity and verification over traditional digital signing because the user’s digital credentials must be issued by a WebTrust-certified authority using strict vetting guidelines, and then must be stored on a secure cryptographic hardware device. Adobe Acrobat 6.0, Adobe LiveCycle Document Security software and GeoTrust True Credentials for Adobe Acrobat certificate offerings are currently available. A single-user, 1-year signing credential provided on a cryptographic token is priced at (US) $895.00 and is available from GeoTrust.
