News & Events

ADSS Server v5.0 has been released with the following features and enhancements:

ADSS Go>Sign Service can now sign using a new Go>Sign Desktop local signing application that does away with the problems of signed Java Applets. Go>Sign Applet is still available but its use is gradually being affected by restrictions in browsers such as Chrome. Go>Sign Desktop must be installed locally but then works with any HTML5 browser using JavaScript interactions. Go>Sign Desktop offers the same functionality as Go>Sign Applet and is currently available for Windows Desktops, version for MacOSX and Unix will follow.
ADSS Signing Service now supports signing multiple documents in a single HTTP/S (high speed protocol) request. Multiple documents were always supported using the slower OASIS DSS protocol.
ADSS Signing Service and ADSS Go>Sign Service now support signing using selected elements within an XML document that are explicitly defined in the signing profile or within an referenced XPath expression.
ADSS Certification Service now supports asynchronous certificate request and response processing. This is useful where vetting of a certificate application must take place prior to certificate issuance.
ADSS OCSP Service now supports “NextUpdate” field in OCSP responses for non-existent certificates during white list checking. The Management Reporting section offers a new Daily Request Report feature that provides a line graph display for the period requested.
ADSS Server now supports the choice of hash algorithm to be used while sending requests to other OCSP responders.
For various services within Management Reporting, the display of transaction logs is much faster.
ADSS OCSP Server and ADSS SCVP Server are being submitted for recertification under the FIPS 201 standard to provide PIV card validation services that comply with HSPD-12.
