Adobe Supports HID Global's Digital Certificates for e-Signatures

One of the world’s most popular trust services for digital documents is now supporting HID Global‘s IdenTrust digital certificates.

Dubbed the Adobe Approved Trust List (AATL), the program enables users to create digital signatures that will automatically be used as legitimate signatures when documents are signed through Adobe Acrobat DC, Acrobat Reader DC, or Adobe Sign. Such signatures can be validated every time a digital document is accessed, and assure those receiving a given document that its IdenTrust credential was valid at the time of its application.

With Adobe’s platforms being some of the most popular in the world for creating and accessing digital documents, its support for IdenTrust is an important development for HID Global. Commenting in a statement, HID Global’s VP of Identity and Access Management, Brad Jarvis, called Adobe’s Document Cloud solutions “ubiquitous” and asserted that they “are used to process more than six billion electronic and digital signature transactions each year.”

“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 specialized software or custom configuration,” Jarvis added.

News of Adobe’s support for IdenTrust comes after the latter was named the world’s top certification authority in a W3Techs survey, and after the IdenTrust Enterprise Solution attained compliance with SAFE-BioPharm Association standards, earlier this year.
