Document Signer Certificate

The Organisational Document Signer Certificates enable automatic bulk digital signing of documents by organizations by integrating them into their software application. Document Signer Certificates are issued in the name of Organization and are available in Class 2. These fall under the category of Special Purpose Certificates, in the IOG (Interoperability Guidelines for Digital Signature Certificates issued under Information Technology Act. Version 3.5 20 June 2018 issued by CCA) these are termed as ‘Organisational Document Signer Certificate’ and are issued to organisational software applications for operating automatically to authenticate documents/information attributed to the organization by using Digital Signature applied to the document documents/Information. They contain additional Object Identifier (OID) in “Certificate Policies” of the certificate as (2.16.356.100.10.1) to limits the usage of this certificate only in the context of automated signing and also to reflect organizational accountability.

The Organisational Document Signer Certificates is different from a Digital Signature Certificate (DSC) issued to an Organization for use of a person in official capacity bearing the name of the department or subdivision of the organization the person belongs to.

Therefore, it may be noted that ‘Document Signer Certificate’ is not a replacement for the signature of the authorized signatory of the organization.
