SAFE-BioPharma operates two trust frameworks for online identity assertion and trusted digital signatures.
The SAFE-BioPharma Bridge Certification Authority (SBCA) is an Internet infrastructure service that enables individuals and online services to trust each other's digital signatures and high assurance electronic IDs. SBCA supports two different linking methods to enable US and EU environments to interoperate.
- SBCA is linked to the US Federal Bridge Certification Authority through the exchange of digital certificates.
- SBCA is also affiliated with the European Telecommunications Standards Institute's Qualified Certificate Program by linking to Trust Lists of EU approved Certification Authorities.
The Trust Lists on this page are generated by software tools that translate cross-certificates into trust lists.
