Certificate value statement
The purpose of this Certificate Value Statement (CVS) is to establish the minimum requirements for the issuing and use of electronic signatures within Ericsson. This CVS thus states the lowest level of administrative and security requirements in order to obtain digital signatures of different legal and organizational value.
The certificates issued in accordance with this CVS are typically suitable for verifying the identity of entities and the authenticity of digital documents and other information objects in connection with information services. Certificates issued in accordance with this CVS may be suitable for a wide range of applications primarily focusing on the following main classes of security services:
- Non-repudiation: the party relying on the certificate can be confident that their counterpart cannot deny an exchange of information.
- Authentication (including authentication of subscribers identity and message integrity).
- Confidentiality: unauthorized persons cannot gain access to confidential information or classified systems.
