WebTrust for Certification Authorities
The WebTrust for Certification Authorities (CA) program was created jointly by AICPA and CICA, and is currently managed by Chartered Professional Accountants of Canada. The programme was created with the intention of increasing consumer confidence over ecommerce transactions with the usage of PKI technology.
With rapid changes in requirements from browsers and regulators alike, BDO offers WebTrust for CA by understanding CAs environment and controls then assessing the adequacy and effectiveness of these controls against established criteria and providing value added recommendations.
A CA that has met the WebTrust principles and criteria is eligible to display the prestigious WebTrust seal on their website. This seal links to the WebTrust Audit Report and CA Management Assertion providing reasonable assurance that a site complies with the WebTrust Principles and Criteria and various management and professional documents and disclosures.
