The European eIDAS regulation (electronic identification and trust services) aims to ensure that:
Only parties that certify to the highest level can legally offer digital signatures and online identification solutions. The EU has drawn up strict frameworks and guidelines to guarantee the above services’ safety, reliability, and legality. In this article, we take a closer look at the techniques and the certificate behind the digital signature: the eSignature.
Wat is een eSignature (electronic signature)?
An electronic signature (eSignature) is the digital equivalent of a written signature. Individuals use an electronic signature to agree to the content of messages, documents, or transactions. Since eSignatures are developed and issued under the European eIDAS regulation, they are recognized in all countries of the EU. We distinguish three different types of electronic signatures:
Please note that a total solution for digital signatures, in addition to the (qualified) eSignature certificate, always uses other trust services that fall under the eIDAS regulation. A digital signature is of little value if the identity of the signer is incorrectly established (eID), if the integrity of the signed document cannot be guaranteed and/or legal entities are unable to issue a security feature (eSeal) or if there is a risk of theft, damage or fraud during shipment (eDelivery). Therefore, always choose a provider of digital signatures that is fully certified under the strict laws and regulations of the EU.
