eIDAS requires a certified Qualified Signature (or Seal) Creation Devices (QSCD) using qualified certificates for the generation of electronic signatures and seals. Our solution is based on Utimaco’s CP5 Common Criteria Protection Profile PP EN 419 221-5 certified QSCD.
Apart from introducing electronic signatures and timestamps, the eIDAS regulation also introduced the procedure of electronic sealing, registering of electronic receptions/deliveries, as well as validation and conservation seals and signatures.
Legal validity and binding
The aim of all the solutions mentioned above is providing maximum security of electronic transactions carried out online, as well as giving them the same binding legal power as if they were signed on paper.
