Digital certificate authority

The Digital Certificate Authority – Digital Certification Policy describes the services performed during the complete life cycle of digital certificates issued by the Department of Education and Communities Certification Authority (DEC CA).

Digital certificates are used to electronically authenticate infrastructure resources, such as servers and other devices for the purposes of establishing secure transactions between these devices.

Digital certificates may also be used to support electronic signatures (in place of handwritten signatures on a document) where transacting parties agree to their use.
