FAQ Question

How do I know what certificate I need?

FAQ Answer

IdenTrust recognizes that it is sometimes difficult to determine what certificate is best to meet your needs.  To help you with this process, IdenTrust has created our unique Certificate Selection Wizard which will help guide you through the process of selecting your certificate.  The wizard is based on what you consider to be your Buying Community or what type of user community that you are most associated with.  Examples of Buying Communities include users of DoD ECA Agency applications, EPCS prescribers, professional who need digital signing and sealing or those individuals who need a certificate for personal use. 


1.  Start by selecting a category from the My Buying Community or the Certificate menu.  Once you have selected a category that is most similar to how you will use your certificate, you can choose from various Learn More links to access additional details about certificates in this category and how to use them. 


2.  When you are ready to purchase your certificate, you simply select a BUY NOW button that will launch the wizard related to that specific Buying Community or Certificate type you have chosen.  An added bonus is that IdenTrust has worked with the government agencies and vendors that use our certificates and we have configured our wizard to only offer you the types of certificates that they will accept.  


3.  From there all you need to do is respond to the prompts and the wizard will assist you in finalizing your buying decision.  


With IdenTrust, choosing the best certificate is for you is as easy as 1, 2, 3!
