What is a Certification Authority?

Certification Authorities (CAs) issue and manage digital certificates. CAs are called “authorities” because they vouch for the accuracy of the information in the certificates they issue. CAs also maintain repositories of published certificates and certificate revocation lists.

SIGNiX is authorized as an official Certification Authority and also uses other broadly trusted CAs, including Symantec. A user gets a SIGNiX certificate by registering for a SIGNiX digital identity. The SIGNiX certificate and CRL repository is available by clicking here.
