OATI webCARES Digital Certificate

webCARES (web-based Certificate Administration, Renewal, and Enrollment Service) Certificate Authority provides digital certificates (Id's) to organizations interested in protecting their electronic communications and data transfers from alterations (data integrity) and imposters (data repudiation). In addition, using an OATI webCARES digital certificate ensures that data being transferred is securely encrypted (data privacy) for safe transport over public communication circuits, such as email systems, extranets and the Internet.

The unbelievably simple, straight forward webCARES web service interface allows an organization's designated Security Officer (SO) to easily issue new digital certificates to their organization's personnel, renew digital certificates before they expire, revoke digital certificates when appropriate, and track the history of any digital certificate within their organization using the webCARES audit features.

All webCARES Certification Authority digital certificates are X509 V3 compatible and conform to the CA/Browser Forum's Baseline Requirements Certificate Policy for the Issuance and Management of Publicly-Trusted Certificates. They are relied upon by 90% of the energy companies across the United States and Canada for SSL/TLS client authentication, web server authentication, e-mail encryption/digital signing and single sign-on applications. No other digital certification authority is more aligned to the needs of the energy industry.
