DigiCert available as a certificate authority as of November 2021

Starting with the next update for NoSpamProxy Server 13.2, DigiCert will be available as a certificate authority in NoSpamProxy Server. This means that customers will soon be able to easily integrate their S/MIME certificates from DigiCert.

With this, NoSpamProxy Server will be extended to include one of the leading Certificate Authorities worldwide. Setting up the connector is easy: All that is needed is the API key from DigiCert’s web portal. Everything else is then set up with just a few clicks, so that misconfigurations are ruled out.

DigiCert S/MIME Class 1: The right choice for encryption only

For the issuance of a Class 1 certificate, only the existence of the requested email address is checked by the certification authority. The certificate can therefore be delivered quickly and without further requirements. Due to its limited scope of verification, however, its significance as a signature is only limited. It contains neither information about the owner (Class 2) nor the company in which the sender is active.

DigiCert S/MIME Premium Class 2: Ideal for encryption and signing

For the issuance of this certificate, the identity and authorisation of the organisation is checked once by DigiCert. Subsequently, certificates can be retrieved independently around the clock without an individual check. It offers the possibility for secure encryption and signing of emails.

Full compliance with GDPR

When using DigiCert certificates, customers can be sure that personal data is stored and processed exclusively in accordance with the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
