CAcert Root Certificate  class 1: 135C EC36 F49C B8E9 3B1A B270 CD80 8846 76CE 8F33 class 3: AD7C 3F64 FC44 39FE F4E9 0BE8 F47C 6CFA 8AAD FDCE

The CAcert Assurance Programme (CAP) aims to verify the identities of Internet users through face to face witnessing of government-issued photo identity documents. The Applicant asks the Assurer to verify to the CAcert Community that the Assurer has met and verified the Applicant's identity against original documents. Assurer may leave a copy of the details with the Applicant, and may complete and sign her final form after the meeting. If there are any doubts or concerns about the Applicant's identity, do not allocate points. You are encouraged to perform a mutual Assurance.

For more information about the CAcert Assurance Programme, including detailed guides for CAcert Assurers, please visit: http://www.cacert.org

A CAcert Arbitrator can require the Assurer to deliver the completed form in the event of a dispute. After 7 years this form should be securely disposed of to prevent identity misuse, e.g. shred or burn the form. The Assurer does not retain copies of ID at all.

For the CAcert Organisation Assurance Programme there is a separate special COAP form.

Applicant's Identity Information points
allocated ? 
About assurance points
Assurance Points will be allocated by the Assurer.
The amount of points is decided by the Assurer and is limited to a maximum of points the assurer is allowed to allocate.
The maximum of allocated points is related to the experience of the assurer.
On full names
The exact full name may have transliterated characters and/or some given names may be abbreviated.
CAcert should have the name in its database which has the most discrimination factor.
The decision if translitatered and/or abbreviated name is equal to the name in the CAcert database is evaluated on a standard way by the Assurer and support system.
On abbreviation of given names
An example standard abbreviation on given names is provided here. If a given name is counted as first given name part of the name is denoted with parentheses around the name.
Example(s) of accepted abbreviation for a full name

drs. T. Fabrice Ghuege-Denis ~= drs. T. F. Ghuege-Denis
drs. T. Fabrice Ghuege-Denis ~= drs. T. F. Ghuege-Denis

Tänўs Iʼntèrnątiœñalîsàtïǿn Ĝügé ~= T(änўs) I. Ĝügé
About allowed transliterations
More than one transliteration of a character is possible. Accepted transliterations are done with a fully standardized table.
E.g. a and y umlaut, and o/slash examples of accepted transliterations for the full name(s):
Jähnÿ Gøle McName =~ J(ae|a)hny G(oe|o)le McName
Tänўs Iʼntèrnątiœñalîsàtïǿn Ĝügé ~= T(ae|a)nўs I'nternatioenalisatiǿn (Gh|G)(ue|u)ge
