Cryptomathic achieves eIDAS certification for remote electronic signatures

Wednesday 11 July 2018 09:33 CET | News

Cryptomathic’s remote qualified eSignature solution, Signer, has achieved eIDAS certification, enabling banks and trust service providers across Europe benefit from it.

The unique combination of eIDAS QSCD certification and ‘What You See Is What You Sign’ (WYSIWYS) functionality creates a new standard for non-repudiable remote electronic signatures. Thus, Signer’s certification raises the bar in non-repudiation for remote e-signature services.

Cryptomathic assists multiple trust services providers and banks to enable their customers to electronically sign documents and transactions at a high assurance level. To protect the users’ private signing keys and ensure the signing operation is carried out in a tamper-evident environment, Cryptomathic Signer relies on Thales nShield HSMs.

Coined in 1998 by Cryptomathic’s founder Dr. Peter Landrock and CTO Dr. Torben Pedersen, the term WYSIWYS describes a functionality that enables trust service providers to demonstrate that what the signatory reads on the screen of a device is authentic and that the user can only sign a document or transaction if it has not been tampered with.
