eIDAS electronic signature

// WHAT IS AN ELECTRONIC SIGNATURE?​

An electronic signature is a process using cryptographic mechanisms (unlike what is known as a ‘digital’ signature), to prove the integrity of an electronic document and the identity of the signatory.

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

The eIDAS European Regulation regulates this by defining 3 levels: basic, advanced and qualified.

// THREE SIGNATURE LEVELS FOR eIDAS

BASIC ELECTRONIC SIGNATURE

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

  • There are no mandatory criteria or certification requirements, so the quality varies depending on the service provider.
  • The most common level of signature, since it is the most flexible and easy to implement for a large number of use cases.

ADVANCED ELECTRONIC SIGNATURE

Electronic signature that satisfies the requirements set out in l’article 26 and by the standard ETSI 319 411-1

  • Identification of the signatory before signature.
  • Electronic certificate containing the signatory’s personal information.
  • 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 satisfies the requirements set out in l’article 32 and by the standard ETSI 319 411- 2

  • Face-to-face identification or its recognised equivalent.
  • Electronic certificate containing the signatory’s personal information.
  • Delivered only by a certified trust service provider.
