Getting Started with the CCADB

When you login to the CCADB you will see a row of tabs along the top of the window, next to the CCADB logo. The number of tabs that you see depends on the width of your window, and a ‘More’ tab will be shown when all of the tabs cannot be displayed. The tabs are: ‘Home’, ‘My CA’, ‘CA Owners/Certificates’, ‘Cases’, ‘CA Communications’, and ‘Reports’.

Home: The home page is the initial page that you see when you login. It provides your CA’s task list which is a set of reports that may be openned by clicking on their title.

  • Open Cases
  • Root Certificates with Outdated Audit Statements
  • Intermediate Certificate with Outdated Audit Statements
  • Intermediate Certificates with Missing Information
  • Intermediate Certificates with Failed ALV Results
  • etc.
