DocumentSign to secure PDF files from Adobe
Certified Document Services (CDS) is the first digital signing solution that allows authors to create Adobe® PDF files that automatically certify to the recipient that the author's identity has been verified by a trusted organization.
Authors of PDFs add digital Certifying Signatures and Approval Signatures to documents they distribute over the Internet. The process is the virtual equivalent to sealing a document and adding wet-ink signatures and assuring the recipient that the document is authentic, comes from a verified source, and the contents have not been tampered with since being published.
GlobalSign is an authorized participant in Adobe's Certified Document Services (CDS) program and operates under a stringent set of policies and standards developed by Adobe and audited by WebTrust to allow GlobalSign to issue Adobe recognized CDS Certificates, branded as DocumentSign Digital IDs, to individuals and departmental entities. DocumentSign users can add Certifying and Approval Signatures to PDFs using a trust model used in Adobe Reader 6.0+ without installing any new plug-ins, configuring Adobe Reader/Acrobat to non-default settings, or needing to make confusing trust decisions.
