AATL is an acronym for Adobe Approved Trusted List, which is a program that allows users to create digital signatures that are instantly and automatically trusted, whenever the signed document is opened in an Adobe product. With AATL certificates, the individual(s) viewing the document is not required to manually upload the certificate root chain locally on the device where the document is viewed.
Using AATL certificates for digital signing allows anyone to validate a digital signature, on any device, at any time!
AATL enabled certificates can only be issued by Certification Authorities (CA) members of Adobe AATL via a commercial publicly trusted root. IdenTrust CA is a member certified under the AATL program (see Current AATL Members List).
AATL certificates must be issued on password protected hardware devices that are FIPS 142-2 L2+ compliant, such as HID Global USB tokens and HID Global Smart cards. This requirement facilitates two-factor authentication (2FA) and also provides additional security, as the certificate private key cannot be exported from the hardware device; thereby eliminating the potential of key compromise by bad actors.
