Utility Certificate

This certificate is generated on the Online Vending CA for every Utility that implements and XMLVend compliant Online Vending System. The server certificate identifies the specific Utility together with an EAN number. It ensures that all communication with the Vending Server is secured via TLS and this certificate. The Certificate does not directly identify the Vending Server hardware but the Utility. Since the Server Certificate is stored on separate hardware security module (HSM), the server certificate may be moved to another Server in case of a server failure for instance.
