The USB-IF Certificate Authority (CA) issues certificates on behalf of the USB-IF. The certificates are used to attest to the identity of the certificate subject as defined in the USB Type-C® Authentication Specification.

In order to obtain a certificate an applicant must have their own VID. The contact of record with the USB-IF must apply for the Certificate or otherwise be available to confirm that applicant has permission to obtain a certificate with the requested VID.

To apply for a Certificate, please contact Brad Tsutsui at A DigiCert representative will then contact you with further application steps, pricing information, and certificate options.
