Send the generated .json file to the site-key administrator for counter-signing. Apply the signed order as described in the next section

Signed Escrow Actions

All the signed, escrow related activities that have been submitted and accepted by the system can be listed here. These actions can come from:

  • Site-key administrator when they are signed using the site key. Typical orders are related to escrow user manipulation.
  • Escrow user when they are signed with the key of a specific user.

Adding new certificates

As explained in section Escrow/Introduction, the site-key administration is performed using signed orders/certificates. For security reasons and separation of responsibilities, the site-key administrator does not have direct access to the system. In order for orders from the site-key administrator to take effect, they need to be added here.

Actions

The only allowed action is to view the signed order. Usually, the signed order provides more details on the action taken due to the signed certificate.
