Overview of the common Certificate policy of openOSI Certification authority (CA)

openOSI CA certificates contain a registered certificate policy object identifier (OID), which may be used by a Relying Party to decide whether a certificate is trusted for a particular purpose. The OID corresponds to a specific level of assurance established by this Certificate Policy (CP) which shall be available to Relying Parties. Each certificate issued by openOSI CA will assert the appropriate level of assurance in the certificatePolicies extension.

openOSI CA certificate policy (CP) states what assurance can be placed in a certificate issued by openOSI CA. The openOSI CA Certification Practices Statement (CPS) states how the openOSI establishes that assurance.


openOSI CA exists to facilitate trusted electronic business transactions and to enhance privacy. It is expected to foster secure Internet2 services (web services) as an extension to legacy Integrated Applications migrating toward Service oriented Architecture (SOA). It is on the roadmap to make available PKI plugin for Enterprise Service Bus (ESB).


The usage of this common certificate policy is to be a single point of reference for others openOSI CP/CPS OID. This OID can be used by anyone under an LGPL license if corresponding policy is enforced.
