The provision of Certification Services is more than just the software of the solution, the personnel maintaining the solution and the technical infrastructure. The recognition and the trust of a Certification Services Provider depend on the internal policies and procedures the provider is implementing.
Policies and procedures are internal and confidential documents of the organization which describe the operations of the Certification Services Provider, and are critical input for an internal or external audit.
An indicative list of these documents includes:

  • the Certificate Policy (CP),
  • the Certificate Practice Statement (CPS),
  • the Key Management Security Plan,
  • the Key Management Policy,
  • etc.
