Hierarchy, Certification Policies and Practices

Home / User Area / Hierarchy, Certification Policies and Practices

A certificate policy is a document prepared by the certification service provider, where is described mainly referring to a certificate type. The certification policy is an element that will indicate the security level associated with the type of certificate. Therefore, it is an essential document to be able to assess and compare certificates from different providers. The content of a certification policy follow the technical standard [RFC3647] Internet X.509 Public Key Infrastructure Certificate Policy and Certification Practices Framework del IETF. The Certification Practice Statement (CPS) It is the set of practices adopted by a certification service provider to issue certificates. It contains detailed information about the security system, support, administration and issuance of certificates … and in general, a description of the services offered, detailed procedures for managing the lifecycle of certificates, etc… These concepts regarding Certification Policies and Certification Practice Statement are different but their relationship is very important.

Certification Hierarchies

Its main goal is to build a trusted network for issuing and managing digital certificates. Camerfirma has two hierarchies, Chambersign Global Root and Chambers of Commerce Root.

CHAMBERS OF COMMERCE ROOT HIERARCHY (CCH) 2016

This Hierarchy is designed to develop a trusted network, with the ultimate aim of issuing corporate, collegiate and public administration digital identity certificates, within Spanish territory and in which the Registration Authorities (hereinafter RA or RAs) are managed by the Spanish Chambers of Commerce, Industry and Navigation or related public or private entities.

EXCEPTIONS: Component certificates (AC CAMERFIRMA CODESIGN, AC CAMERFIRMA TSA AND AC CAMERFIRMA FOR WEBSITES) have no territorial limitations and are not associated with specific registration entities.

Under this CPS, intermediate Certification Authorities corresponding to a specific business, collegiate or public group can be issued, provided that the territory scope is the Spanish state. Thus, the certificates issued under this intermediate certification authority acquire the recognition obtained by ROOT in commercial applications (Browsers such as Explorer, Chrome, Mozilla, etc.).

The scheme of Intermediate Certification Authorities issuing digital certificates under this hierarchy is:

CHAMBERSIGN GLOBAL ROOT HIERARCHY (CGH) 2016

This hierarchy issue certificates for specific projects with a specific Entity or Entities. It is therefore, an open hierarchy. Certificates issued under this hierarchy are adapted to specific project needs. In this sense, unlike the “Chamber of Commerce Root” mentioned above, the Registration Authorities are not necessarily included within the scope of the Spanish Chambers of Commerce, or within a specific regional scope, business scope or a business relationship. This hierarchy can therefore issue certificates anywhere there is a recognised RA that meets Camerfirma’s requirements, always subject to current law and applicable to international trading relations.

The ChamberSign Global Root Hierarchy organises the issuance of digital certificates in different territories by establishing certification authorities created specifically for issuing certificates in a particular country, thus allowing better adaptation to the legal framework and corresponding regulations.

Under this hierarchy, intermediate Certification Authorities follow different national legal frameworks.
