Sectigo (formerly Comodo CA) CPAC (Personal Authentication Certificate) is a new generation of SMIME/Email SSL certificates. Thanks to the use of CPAC certificates, you can digitally sign and encrypt e-mails, digitally sign documents created in Microsoft® Office and OpenOffice. CPAC SSL certificates are 3 solutions in 1 that allow you to get the following benefits:
Private and secure e-mail
Personal Authentication Certificates (CPACs) provide true and full encryption of messages between you and your recipients (contacts). Signed and encrypted e-mail can not be intercepted and decrypted using “man-in-the-middle” attacks, “packet sniffer” or using https proxy servers.
Digitally sign your e-mails
Authenticate as the sender of the sent e-mail so that you will not allow anyone to change the content of sent messages without notifying the recipient.
Encrypt your e-mails
Full privacy by making your e-mail messages can not be intercepted and read by anyone except intended recipients.
Digitally sign documents
Personal Authentication Certificates allow you to sign important documents to confirm their authenticity and that they have not been changed since they were signed.
• CPAC certificate certifies the identity of the person signing the documents, thus confirming their authenticity and integrity.
• CPAC certificate can be used in conjunction with or to replace the traditional signature function in Microsoft® Office products.
• CPAC certificate ensures compliance with industry directives and privacy/security policies with frameworks that require digitally signed documents.
• CPAC certificate allows you to resign from the traditional document flow and signatures on contracts, documents, archives, etc., replacing all this with a digital signature.
Authenticate and authorize anyone who logs in to your website
CPAC certificate allows companies to set a banking standard for the two-factor authentication of users logging in to their websites. Once installed on your computer or mobile device, the CPAC certificate will be seamlessly requested and verified by your web server before the user has access to their account. The verification and authentication process is transparent for users, and thus it is not a problem to use in the current, standard process of entering username and password.
Important information: To generate and receive a CPAC certificate, please use Microsoft® Internet Explorer® 11 or Mozilla® Firefox®. CPAC certificate can not be generated using Apple® Safari®, Google® Chrome® or Microsoft Edge® browsers.
