Part 1:

Forms sent to IdenTrust are sometimes missing required information such as the organization officer’s signature, title, email and/or phone number, as well as the date it was signed. It’s also possible the form does not show the organization name and/or address that was listed on the online application.

If information is missing, you will receive an email outlining what was missing on the form, as well as a copy of a blank Part 1 form.

Part 2:

Forms require a number of fields to be filled out, some of which sometimes get missed. Most common fields are the signatures of the applicant and/or notary, specific details about the IDs presented for verification, and the email address either missing or not matching that listed on the application. There can be other errors with the form as well.

If information is missing, you will receive an email outlining what was missing on the form, as well as a copy of a blank Part 2 form.

Please send the complete, original form(s) to: 

 IdenTrust Registration
 5225 Wiley Post Way, Ste 450
 Salt Lake City, UT 84116

You may also email the completed form to Processing@IdenTrust.com, from the email address provided during your online application. 

Your initial application will remain open for 45 days which will give you time to complete your forms packet and send the original, valid forms to IdenTrust for processing. After 45 days has elapsed without usable paperwork being submitted, the application will close and you will need to complete a new application.
 

in the case of IGC and ECA certificates, as soon as the notary / Trusted Agent / ADE (depending on the certificate you apply for) signs the Part 2 form verifying your ID documents, a 30-day countdown begins. This means that you have 30 days from that date to send in your forms, be approved for the certificate and to retrieve the certificate. This is a requirement of the certificate policy and as such, once the 30 day window has passed a new application and forms packet will need to be completed.
 

Once an application has closed, it cannot be reopened.

The application requires that multiple verification steps be completed before it can be approved. Because of this, the approval process cannot be expedited. 
You do have the option to request expedited shipping of the activation kit once the application has been approved. You may select expedited shipping during the application process, or you may contact our Support team at (888) 339-8904 to request and pay for expedited shipping with either a FedEx account number, or your credit card. 

Please note: Once your application is approved, it will take up to 24 business hours for the activation kit to ship. 

Yes, you can use a Notary Public to comply with the in-person verification requirement. However, verification by a Notary is valid ONLY for ECA | Medium Assurance and ECA | Medium Token Assurance certificates. 

If you need to obtain an ECA | Medium Hardware Assurance certificate, you must contact a Trusted Agent within your organization or an IdenTrust Registrar (RA Operator or Trusted Agent).  

Refer to our datasheet Who Can Sign the Part 2 Form for ECA certificates.

According to the ECA Program policy, an applicant can prove their citizenship using a valid passport issued by the country of citizenship. You should bring your passport to the in-person identity verification appointment. Either the Trusted Agent, the Notary Public, the U.S. consul or an authorized IdenTrust employee will verify your citizenship using your passport.  

 

The ECA program Certificate Policy (CP) and IdenTrust Certification Practice Statement (CPS) require that citizenship be proved based on a valid passport. If you are citizen of a non-U.S. country and you do not have a passport, you are not eligible to obtain a certificate under the ECA Program. However, if you are citizen of the United States, you can also prove your citizenship based on the following documents:

 

  1. Birth Certificate. Certified birth certificate issued by the city, county, or state of birth, in accordance with applicable local law. A certified birth certificate has a registrar's raised, embossed, impressed or multicolored seal, registrar’s signature, and the date the certificate was filed with the registrar's office, which must be within 1 year of birth. A delayed birth certificate, filed more than one year after birth, is acceptable if it lists the documentation used to create it and is signed by the attending physician or midwife, or lists an affidavit signed by the parents, or shows early public records. 
  2. Naturalization Certificate. A Naturalization Certificate is a document issued by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS) since October 1, 1991, and the Federal Courts or certain State Courts on or before September 30, 1991, as proof of a person obtaining U.S. citizenship through naturalization. 
  3. Certificate of Citizenship. A Certificate of Citizenship is a document issued by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS) as proof of a person having obtained U.S. citizenship through derivation or acquisition at birth (when born outside of the United States). 
  4. FS-240 - Consular Report 
  5. DS-1350 - Certification of Report of Birth 
     

If you require the ECA Hardware Assurance certificate, you can schedule an in-person identification session with one of our Trusted Agent. To do so, please call our Support team at (888) 882-1104. 

Certificates are processed in the order each request is submitted, and the required paperwork is received. If during the validation phase IdenTrust requires additional information, the process may take longer. 

Any hardware requested will be shipped to the mailing address on the application once the application has been approved. Unless expedited shipping was purchased, the package will deliver 3-5 days after shipping.

Certificates are processed in the order each request is submitted, and the required paperwork is received. Once approved, an email is sent to the certificate requestor which will allow immediate certificate retrieval. If the certificate request includes a USB Token or Smart card, the hardware will be shipped to the mailing address provided during the online registration.

You can include multiple citizenships in your application. The citizenships you include will be used by IdenTrust to issue your certificate and Relying Parties will use the citizenship information within the certificate to establish your access to their applications. IdenTrust has designed its registration processes to easily accept up to three citizenships.

 

If you need to include more than three citizenships please contact the IdenTrust Registration Desk directly at 1 (888) 882-1104 within the U.S., or 1 (801) 384-3474 outside of the U.S.

Unfortunately, no. Each certificate must be applied for individually by the person who needs it. 

When applying for a certificate, our Certificate Selection Wizard will assist you in choosing the best certificate to meet your needs.

The certificate policy requires that applicants for ECA | Medium Hardware Assurance | Trusted Agent Identity-Proofing Required certificates have their identity validated by a Trusted Agent, approved by IdenTrust or the DoD. A notary’s review does not sufficiently meet this requirement.

When IdenTrust is verifying your identity, certain ID information is required such as the driver's license, social security card, or other details. If we are unable to verify those details, you will be asked via email to submit notarized documentation supporting what is listed on your application. Without this information, we cannot approve your certificate application.

 

Please have a copy of the document(s) notarized and mail to: 

 

 IdenTrust Registration
 5225 Wiley Post Way, Ste 450
 Salt Lake City, UT 84116 

Sometimes the required ID fields are missing details, such as the legal name, issue/expire date or document title. A copy of your ID is needed to confirm the missing details and to authenticate your identity.  If the details cannot be authenticated, a new Part 2 form will be requested.



If the serial/unique number is missing from the field, a new Part 2 form must be completed and sent in for processing. The original or notarized copy of the original document(s) should be sent to:



 IdenTrust Registration
 5225 Wiley Post Way, Ste 450
 Salt Lake City, UT 84116 

Address and phone verification are a necessary part of the identity verification required to obtain a digital certificate. If you receive an email requesting documentation, be sure to send either the original, or a notarized copy of the document.



Accepted documents are:

 

  • Driver's license or state ID
  • Utility bill dated in the last 30 days
  • Phone bill dated in the last 30 days
  • Rental agreement
  • Other documents can be reviewed on a case by case basis.


Please mail the original or notarized copy of the confirming document to:

Please contact Registration@IdenTrust.com for more information on the document you would like to submit. 

Digital certificates retrieved into a browser, also known as software certificates, are intended to be used mainly from a single computer. As no additional device is required, software certificates are relatively inexpensive.

Digital certificates retrieved into a portable hardware device such as USB token or Smart card, not only can be used from multiple computers, but also offer additional security via the built-in second factor authentication feature. Certificates stored in hardware devices can also be configured for Client Authentication for faster secure login sessions.

The decision to opt for a software or a hardware certificate is mainly predefined by the sponsoring organization (business); at an individual level, the applicant should weigh-in if the additional security and portability benefits are worth the hardware expense. 

Note: Be sure to check with your relying party or program to determine if it requires a specific type of storage:

  • Software
  • USB token
  • Smart card

When applying for a certificate where you are asked to list an Organization, you should identify exactly which Organization you need to enter.
Usually the Organization you list when applying is the Organization you work for, but there are scenarios where you may need to consider something else. If you are a contractor applying for the certificate needed for another company, you may need to list that Organization instead of your own. Be sure to check with your organization if you are unsure what you should list on your application.

Your Organization may have a Trusted Agent. The individual who requested that you obtain an ECA Program certificate should know the contact information for that person. If you do not have the means to obtain this information, contact IdenTrust for further details at 1 (888) 882-1104.

Additionally, IdenTrust has made available Trusted Agent in the following areas:

  • San Antonio, TX
  • Fremont, CA
  • Salt Lake City, UT

You may contact IdenTrust to set up an appointment.  

The identity proofing for the Part 2 - ID Form can be completed in-person by either a notary, your organization's Trusted Agent, or an IdenTrust Registration Analyst.

If you are in the Salt Lake City, UT area, you may schedule an in-person session with our Registration team. Please contact our Support team at (800) 748-5360.

Order Numbers are a good solution for organizations that would like to purchase a large quantity of certificates, but do not want to have to manage multiple voucher numbers. 

When an Order Number is requested and approved, the organization's Order Number administrator will receive the Order Number as well as a custom URL which can then be distributed to those who need to obtain the digital certificate. 

 

To request an Order Number, please send an email to <a href="mailto:Sales@IdenTrust.com">Sales@IdenTrust.com</a> and provide the following:

  • Which certificate you would like to order
  • For hardware-based certificates, if you would like the USB token or a Smart card
  • How many certificates are needed
  • With which program do you plan to use the certificate

Payment is not collected until the application for the certificate has been approved; however, the credit card is authorized and funds are placed on hold. Certificates that are not affiliated with a business have an additional authorization hold placed:

  • As part of the identity verification process the credit card has a $1.00 authorization hold placed on it. This authorization hold will remain on the card for 3-5 business days, dependent on the bank. 
  • An additional hold, in the amount of the certificate cost is also placed on the credit card when entered on the payment page of the application. This authorization hold will also remain on the card for 3-5 business days. Once the certificate application is approved the card will be charged and the funds will be collected by IdenTrust.

As of January 24, 2019, the SafeNet OTP Hybrid USB token for EPCS is no longer available. IdenTrust will continue to accept renewal requests with OTP Hybrid USB token licensing until the token fails or becomes unusable for any reason. 

 

IdenTrust now offers the IdenTrust EPCS Mobile Authentication Service which combines the HID Approve™ mobile application with the IdenTrust digital certificate to replace the current SafeNet OTP Hybrid token solution. Please contact your EMR/EHR to ask if they are in the process of setting up this offering. 

The certificate policy requires the confirmation of identity be signed with a handwritten signature.

 

  • The organization officer's signature on the Part 1 form must be original and dated.
  • The signatures (both yours and the notary's) must also be original.


IdenTrust must receive the original wet-ink signature to confirm the signatures are original and not a stamp or photocopy.
 

We advise making a photocopy of the forms for your records, but the original, wet signature (pen to paper) forms must be submitted for processing.  Please send the signed, original forms to:

 IdenTrust Registration

IdenTrust is required by policy to verify the details listed in your application including the organization name, address, city, state, zip code as well as to independently verify a phone number registered to the organization. We attempt to verify this information using trusted third-party databases that contain corporate information. However, if detail cannot be verified, we will send an email requesting additional documentation.


Why can't you just look up the address or phone number online?

The policy requires that IdenTrust use trusted databases that contain the organization information to be verified. IdenTrust uses multiple data-sources that have been pre-approved and cannot use corporate websites or other websites that have not been approved.

 

What forms of documentation can I provide to confirm my organization's identity or phone number?

Registration documents from a secretary of state or other government registry are accepted.

 

Government issued documents that attest to the organization's legal existence, certificate of good-standing, or other approved documents attesting to the organization's existence are also accepted.

 

Please provide the original document or a notarized copy of the original. This is to ensure authenticity of the document and that there is no indication of forgery, fraud, tampering, etc.

The ECA Program is governed by a Certificate Policy requiring that all applicants provide proof of their citizenship in order to be issued an ECA certificate.  

Most applications require only an ECA | Medium Assurance or an ECA | Medium Token Assurance certificate. There are only a handful of agencies that require the higher assurance ECA | Medium Hardware Assurance certificate.  Our Certificate Selection Wizard will guide you through the process of selecting the correct assurance level that is required by the agency or agencies with which you will be interacting.   

To confirm what certificate type you need, we suggest you select DoD ECA Programs from the Certificate drop down menu which will allow you to initiate the Certificate Selection Wizard.

  • Choose the BUY NOW button. 
  • From here, the Certificate Selection Wizard will prompt you to select the agency or agencies that you work with. 
  • Then choose NEXT
  • Step through the wizard and you will be presented with the certificate options that are accepted by the agency or agencies you have selected. 
  • Complete the wizard process and purchase your DoD ECA certificate

If your relying party does require a ECA | Medium Hardware Assurance certificate, you will need to meet with a Trusted Agent to obtain the required in-person identity-proofing for the certificate. You can scheduled an in-person identification session with one of our Trusted Agents by contacting our Support team at 1 (888) 882-1104.

Certificates are processed in the order each request is submitted, and any required paperwork is received.
View our IdenTrust ECA Trusted Agent Program datasheet to learn about becoming a Trusted Agent. If you decide to apply as a Trusted Agent, you will need to submit the ECA Trusted Agent Agreement form and submit with your certificate application.
