The TSCP Policy Management Authority.
The TSCP Policy Management Authority (TPMA) sets policy governing operation of the TSCP Bridge Certification Authority (TBCA) trust infrastructure and approves Applicants for cross-certification with the TBCA. It operates under authority of the TSCP Program Management Office (TPMO) and serves the interest of those entities cross-certified with the TBCA.
Determinations by the TPMA facilitate trust, but do not prescribe the criteria by which relying parties accept digital certificates from external sources for transactions. All entities are free to accept or reject any digital certificate issued by any other entity at their sole discretion, using available TPMA determinations to assist in making informed decisions.
