Ascertia, a digital signature and PKI certificate validation software provider, has received the U.S. General Service Administration’s FIPS 201 certification for its ADSS SCVP Server.

Ascertia’s ADSS SCVP Server provides RFC 5055 compliant certificate path validation services. It can delegate certificate path discovery across various PKI topologies, including hierarchy, cross-certificates and mesh architectures.

It also has delegated certificate path validation that meets PKIX RFC3280 with real-time certification status validation. The server can handle multiple validation policies, advance transactional logging and advanced trust anchor management and data caching.

Ascertia says the server also was successfully evaluated against the most recent NIST PKITS path discovery and validation test suite, which tested its compliance with the SHA-256 and ECDSA algorithms.
