Adobe is excited to welcome Post.Trust, the certification authority subsidiary of An Post, the Irish postal service, into the Certified Document Services program.
CDS makes creating and receiving authentic documents easier by not
requiring a recipient to explicitly trust the author of the document.
CDS signatures automatically validate in Adobe Acrobat or Adobe Reader 6.0 and above,
providing integrity and long-term assurance to electronic documents of
record. Providers involved in the CDS Program are required to meet
stringent requirements for identity vetting, security, and operations.
Euthymics BioScience, a start-up biotechnology company focused on developing next generation treatments for neuropsychiatric disorders, is now using Adobe Acrobat and GlobalSign Certified Document Services (CDS) signature credentials to digitally sign key documents, according to a recent announcement from GlobalSign, a member of the Adobe Security Partner Community. Euthymics can now eliminate the time and money associated with the traditional paper, pen, routing, and archiving of wet ink signatures, and also better meet critical US Food and Drug Administration requirements, which place a high priority on document authentication and integrity.
John Landwehr, Director of Security Solutions here at Adobe, recently sat down for Focus Washington, an online television series that deals with a variety of topics at the convergence of policy and technology. Here, Landwehr describes certified documents, and notes their benefits not only to authenticity and integrity, but also to accessibility and indexing.
