Authors may acquire client licensor certificates to publish rights-protected content while they are not connected to the RMS-enabled network. A client licensor certificate has a key pair of 1024-bit RSA keys.
The RMS client uses the client licensor certificate public key when issuing a publishing license to accomplish the following tasks:
To encrypt the symmetric content key.
To sign publishing licenses that are issued locally while the user is not connected to the network.
