How Symantec Managed PKI for Adobe CDS Works

Managed PKI for Adobe CDS, offered by Adobe and Symantec, powered by Symantec technology offers seamless integration with Adobe document publishing applications that is easy to use.

  • PDF files signed with Managed PKI for Adobe CDS are certified.
  • When viewed in Adobe® Reader or Acrobat by the recipient, the signature is automatically verified.
  • A message confirms that the signature has been validated.
  • Recipients can view additional information, such as certificate details, signer’s contract information and validation method, by clicking the signature properties.
Use Adobe Acrobat for low to moderate volume signing

An individual or a department is issued a SafeNet FIPS 140-2 level 2 cryptographic USB token which holds the verified signer's CDS certificate. Each PDF document is signed individually, using a secure, two-factor process with the token.

Use Adobe Live Cycle® Security server for high volume document signing

Organizations with high volumes of documents (such as bank or billing statements, or reports in the name of an organization) should use Adobe Live Cycle Security server. The certificate is securely stored on a SafeNet FIPS 140-2 level 3 hardware security module (HSM) and enables batch processing without manually opening each document to apply the certificate.

Manage PKI for Adobe CDS enables more secure, reliable electronic document exchange. Organizations are able to publish trusted documents to an open community where pre-existing trust relationships might not exist. Symantec provides a fully-managed, centralized and secure web-based management system that allows authorized Registration Authorities to enroll users, run reports, revoke certificates and manage certificates.
