Signer's guide

DigiCert​​®​​ Document Trust Manager allows you to sign documents using trusted and compliant digital signatures.

Before you can start signing, you must create a valid digital ID in DigiCert ONE by verifying your identity and setting up two-factor authentication (2FA).

  1. Create your DigiCert ONE digital ID

    A digital signature is an e-signature that is supported by a digital ID. The digital identity (digital ID) is a digital certificate that confirms that DigiCert​​®​​ has verified that the individual listed on the certificate is authentic.

    To create DigiCert ONE digital ID:

    1. Set up your DigiCert ONE account

      Create a DigiCert ONE account to access DigiCert​​®​​ Document Trust Manager.

    2. Verify your identity

      Verify your identity remotely using a specified mobile application or in person with an authorized professional. Review common questions about Remote Identity Verification.

    3. Set up two-factor authentication (2FA)

      Download a mobile authenticator application to confirm your identity every time you sign a document using your DigiCert ONE digital ID. Specific authenticator applications are required to be used depending on where you are located.

  2. Sign a document

    Use a signing application such as true-Sign V, Adobe Acrobat Sign, DocuSign or SigningHub to sign your document.
