Class-3 Certificates are issued to individuals, companies and government organizations. They can be used both for personal and commercial purposes. They are typically used for electronic commerce applications such as electronic banking, electronic data interchange (EDI), and membership-based on-line services, where security is a major concern.
The level of trust created by the Digital Certificate is based on the authentication procedures used by the CA to verify your identity and the service guarantees offered by the CA to back up that authentication.
TCS-CA uses various procedures to obtain evidence of your identity before issuing you the Class-3 Certificate. During verification, you will also need to be physically present before a Registration Authority (RA), qualified by TCS-CA due to their neutrality and reliability. These validation procedures provide stronger assurances of an applicant's identity.
Class-3 Certificates issued by the TCS-CA are legally valid under the Indian IT Act 2000.
