What is an Identity

An Identity is what goes into the signing certificate.

It includes the Company/Organization name (as legally registered), the Business Unit or Department (optional), as well as the City/Town, State and Country where the company is located and registered.

This Identity must first be verified by GlobalSign internal procedures before the Identity becomes valid for use with one or more subscription(s).

The same Identity is displayed on the signature, showing detailed information of the signature provider to the relying party.
