Practices & Policies
Certificate Policies (CP) and the Certification Practice Statement (CPS) constitute a basis for the accreditation of a Certification Authority (CA). As a CA, Netrust makes a statement of association when it issues a certificate. It means that the certificate is associated with the person or equipment uniquely named within that certificate.
Netrust – An IMDA-accredited Certificate Authority

Certification Practice Statement
CPS is a detailed statement of practices and operational procedures which a CA employs in the issuance of certificates. Netrust has introduced one single CPS to support the below CP(s). Each CP must be read in conjunction with the CPS. The Netrust CP(s) and CPS are to be understood and consulted by Netrust Relying Parties. The Relying Parties should assess their own requirements when relying on a particular Netrust certificate, taking into consideration the Netrust CP, applicable to that Netrust Certificate, together with the Netrust CPS.
Netrust issues multiple classes of certificates to support different certificate user communities. Each class of certificates is governed by a CP that differentiates the use of the certificates for different application purposes and/or by different certificate user communities.
