Update: Alignment of Adobe-Approved Trust List (AATL) and EU Trust List (EUTL)

Posted by John Jolliffe, Head of European Government Affairs, and Steve Gottwals, Senior Engineering Manager for Information Security in Standards at Adobe

As mentioned in our previous post, Alignment of Adobe-Approved Trust List (AATL) and EU Trust List (EUTL) we have been busy working on the integration of the EU Trust List into Adobe Acrobat and Reader software. Our January 14, 2014 release of Adobe Reader and Acrobat 11.0.06 takes another significant step towards that ultimate goal. In this version of the product, you will notice new UI to manage the EUTL download. For instance, we’ve added new controls in the Trust Manager Preferences as shown below.

While we continue with our beta testing phase of this process, the general user will not be able to download an EUTL. But, as soon as beta is complete, we’ll be moving the EUTL into production, where everyone will have access.

    Thank you for the news!
    Will it be possible at some point for a recipient to distinguish easily a document signed with an EU trusted certificate from another Adobe trusted certificate?

    I hope to be soon able to use it.
    Best regards,

    Vincent –
    Not initially, but that is something we’re considering for the future.

    How about time stamping certs, will they inherit the same level trust based on EU TSL? Thanks!
