Each CeDiploma® PDF is digitally signed and encrypted. When you order a CeDiploma®, you’ll receive unique CeDID code. This code is what you share with others so they can verify your certified electronic diploma.
Validate a CeDiploma®
A UW–Madison CeDiploma® can be validated in two ways.
Digital signature in Adobe Reader or Acrobat
All electronic diplomas from UW–Madison are digitally signed by CeCredential Trust. When the document is viewed through Adobe Reader or Acrobat versions 9.0 or higher, it will reveal that a digital signature has been applied to the document.
Adobe Reader and Acrobat use a blue ribbon across the top of the document to indicate document has not been tampered with and is therefore authentic. This digital signature will not display in other tools used for viewing PDF files, such as the Mac OS X Preview program.
