Digi-CAST™ Compliance, Certification & Standards

Owning & Operating a Trust Centre
Most government related or national PKI projects require a Trust Centre. For any computer room or data centre to become a Trust Centre, it must comply with certain standards. Some of these also require that the Trust Centre be certified.

The C-A-S-T methodology was pioneered by Digi-Sign in 2004 after many years of developing and deploying CAs around the world and follows such information security standards as ISO 27001 (previously BS 7799-2, BS 7799, BS 7799 Part 2), 93/1999/EC, ETSI 101 456, HIPAA, Sarbanes Oxley, SB 1386, Gramm-Leach Bliley, EAL, ETSI, CWA, ICAO for MRTD and many others.

Alternative Trust Centre Options

As a TSP you can reduce the overall costs whilst still owning a complete Digi-CA™ system infrastructure. Your personnel will operate, manage and administer it whilst also managing the sales and marketing of the Trust Centre, in co-operation with Digi-Sign.

If this level of commitment is not what you want to consider, then the CSP is another Partner Programme:
