Adobe does document security

Wednesday, 6 October 2004, 4:46 PM EST

Electronic document giant Adobe said that it was partnering with digital certificate company GeoTrust to provide technology that will allow documents that use Adobe's popular PDF to be digitally certified.

Tuesday, the companies issued a joint statement to announce a document signing service that pairs GeoTrust's True Credentials digital signing technology with Adobe's Acrobat document security software. The new service will make it possible for organizations to verify the authenticity of a document using a digital certificate, which the companies claim will help fight online fraud such as phishing scans and online identity theft.
