WHAT ARE CPS/CPs

The CPS is a detailed statement on the practices that the Certificate Authority employs in its operations and issuance of certificates.

The CP, on the other hand, indicates the applicability of a certificate to a particular community and/or class of application with common security requirements. For instance, a particular CP might indicate the applicability of a type of certificate to the authentication of web servers while another CP might detail the applicability of another type of certificate to the authentication of electronic data.

For more information on a particular type of certificate, please see the relevant CP.
