QV Advanced Plus Certificates

QuoVadis Advanced Plus certificates can be issued to a person for signing, encryption and authentication.  It is a high assurance certificate that is in the Adobe Approved Trust List, which makes them ideal for signing legal and official PDF documents.  Signatures created with the QV Advanced Plus certificate will show a trusted mark in the PDF reader for relying parties indicating that the identity of the certificate holder has been independently verified and whether the content of the PDF has been modified since it was digitally signed.

To protect the private key and ensure it is only accessible to the certificate holder, it is mandatory that these certificates be issued onto a Secure Signature Creation Device, such as a security token.  Applicants must comply with the proof-of-identity requirements as part of the certificate issuance process.
