This is a certificate that has been issued with a name registered with an entity that manages a top-level domain (TLD), for example server1.domain.com.

Time-stamping of code signatures has also been improved. The standard requires the CA to provide a time-stamping authority (TSA) and specifies the requirements for the TSA and the time-stamping certificates.
