Entities Cross-Certified with the Federal Bridge

When a PKI cross-certifies with the Federal PKI Management Authority, and is an affiliate in good standing, a Relying Party operating an online application that utilizes digital certificates for electronic identity authentication may choose to trust that PKI's digital certificates at the Level(s) of Assurance asserted by those certificates.

No other trust requirements are needed for the Relying Party to make that determination.

Note: CBP stands for Commercial Best Practice.
