A GSDX is a container (like docx) based on ISO/IEC 29500-2:2021 containing one or more GSDML files, attachments and an optional digital signature. The digitial signature gets mandatory using GSDX in context of Security Class 1 ensuring integrity and authenticity.

There are two possibilities:
1. the PI/PNO does this for you as the vendor with the vendor certificate or
2. the vendor does it himself after having the certificate and the necessary software issued by the PI/PNO.

Please contact your provider. They can check whether it is a certificate error or compromised data.

The PI/PNO administrators can help you as the manufacturer. You can reach them at https://www.profibus.com/gsd-shop
