Electronic signature eIDAS

What is the electronic signature?

The electronic signature is a process, using cryptographic mechanisms (as opposed to the so-called “digital” signature), which guarantees the integrity of an electronic document and the identity of the signatory.

Under certain conditions, it has the same legal value as a handwritten signature.

The European eIDAS regulation provides a framework by defining 3 levels: simple, advanced, qualified.

The 3 levels of signature according to eIDAS

SIMPLE ELECTRONIC SIGNATURE

"Data in electronic form, which is attached to or logically associated with other data in electronic form and which the signer uses to sign."

  • No mandatory criteria or certification, and therefore, variable quality depending on the provider.
  • The most common signature level because it is the most flexible and easy to implement for a large number of use cases.

ADVANCED ELECTRONIC SIGNATURE

Electronic signature that meets the requirements set out in section 26 and in ETSI 319 411-1

  • Identification of the signatory mandatory before signature.
  • Electronic certificate containing the personal information of the signatory.
  • Delivered only by a certified trust service provider.
  • Can be used remotely: the ideal compromise between flexibility and legal security.

QUALIFIED ELECTRONIC SIGNATURE

Electronic signature that meets the requirements set out in section 32 and in ETSI 319 411- 2

  • Face-to-face identification or recognized as equivalent.
  • Electronic certificate containing the personal information of the signatory.
  • Delivered only by a certified trust service provider.
