Choosing Your Certificate

The D-Trade application can currently accept GSA ACES certificates.

ACES Certificates

The GSA has authorized IdenTrust to continue to issue legacy ACES Business Certificates to D-Trade users for an extended period of time; however, the GSA has also mandated that all ACES certificates must expire before August 1, 2020.  In order to comply with this requirement, effective August 1, 2019 all ACES certificates will be issued with an expiration date of July 31, 2020.  This means that if you purchase an ACES 1 year certificate after July 31, 2019 the validity period will be truncated and not valid for an entire year.

Simply select BUY NOW and the IdenTrust Certificate Selection Wizard will assist you in choosing a certificate that is accepted by the D-Trade system and will also meet your business needs.
