GLEIF Collaborates to Accelerate Use of LEIs in Digital Certificates

The Global Legal Entity Identifier Foundation (GLEIF) has collaborated with Certification Authorities (CAs) and Trust Service Providers (TSPs) to extend use of LEIs beyond financial markets in digital certificates. A CA Stakeholder Group is supporting communication between GLEIF, CAs and TSPs as they collectively aim to coordinate and encourage a global approach to LEI usage across digital identity products. Participation has already been confirmed by China Financial Certification Authority (CFCA), DigiCert, InfoCert, Entrust Datacard, ICAI India, and SwissSign. The collaboration follows ISO’s standardisation of the process of embedding LEIs in digital certificates last year.
