Representations upon issuance of certificate.
(a) By issuing a certificate with the intention that it will be relied upon
by third parties to
verify digital signatures created by the subscriber, a certification authority
represents to the subscriber,
and to any person who reasonably relies on information contained in the
certificate, in good faith and
during its operational period, that:
(1) the certification authority has processed,
approved, and issued, and will manage and revoke if necessary, the certificate in accordance with its applicable certification practice statement stated or incorporated by reference in the certificate or of which such person has notice, or in lieu thereof, in accordance with this Act or the law of the jurisdiction governing issuance of the certificate;
(2) the certification authority has verified the
identity of the subscriber to the extent stated in the certificate or its applicable certification practice statement, or in lieu thereof, that the certification authority has verified the identity of the subscriber in a trustworthy manner;
(3) the certification authority has verified that the
person requesting the certificate holds the private key corresponding to the public key listed in the certificate; and
(4) except as conspicuously set forth in the
certificate or its applicable certification practice statement, to the certification authority's knowledge as of the date the certificate was issued, all other information in the certificate is accurate, and not materially misleading.
(b) If a certification authority issued the certificate subject to the
of another jurisdiction,
the certification authority also makes all warranties and representations, if
any, otherwise applicable
under the law governing its issuance.
