Obtaining a certificate

Verification of a person for this certificate complies with Class 2. Please note that before completing the verification and obtaining the certificate, Adobe requires a short video call with the CA to verify the applicant's identity. The person applying for the certificate must sign the form in such a way that the CA employee can see the signature and must attach a picture of their identity card. An alternative is for a notary to confirm the form.

FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions

The certificate is stored on a token for maximum private key security, thus eliminating the risk of certificate abuse. The certificate will not be misused even if the token is physically stolen, because signing (using a private key) requires a password and cannot be exported. Entering the wrong password several times will block the token and it will become unusable.
No special or additional software or development environment is required to sign documents, as is the case with Code Signing certificates. You can sign the document directly in the software you create it in. For example, signing support is available in the widespread Adobe Acrobat, MS Office, LibreOffice and OpenOffice products.

For specific procedures for signing in these programs, see the Help article Signing documents with a Signing documents with a Document Signing certificate.
In general, yes; but it depends on the specific software and its implementation. If the program knows the signature time (from a valid timestamp) and can check the revocation of the certificate, then the signature will be valid. However, this may not work entirely in all office programs.

If the validity of a signature in documents is critical and you require it for many years to come, then we recommend an electronic archiving service to manage the document life cycle.
The certificate is indeed issued to the "organization" because the prerequisite for OV verification is an existing organization or company. However, the applicant's certificate is included in the certificate and his / her person is associated with the company's signature.

Of course, you will also find a version of the certificate for individuals in our offer, called Document Signing Individual.
