IGC Medium Hardware Affiliated Digital Certificate

Step 1 - Apply online and pay for your IGC certificate

You have selected an IGC Medium Hardware Affiliated Digital Certificate. This means your certificate will be stored in a hardware device (e.g. USB token or smart card), and that it will assert business entity association (affiliation). Hardware storage type is selected during the application process.

The IdenTrust online registration process will ask you to provide basic personal information and then pay for your digital certificate. Personal information collected for Medium assurance certificates is minimal, as identity proofing is required to be conducted in-person.
