The digital transformation and shift towards fully electronic models in business relations entail the need to protect the integrity, confidentiality and authenticity of exchanged and archived documents.

In the EU, Regulation No. 910/2014 on electronic identification and trust services for electronic transactions in the internal market (eIDAS Regulation) adopted on 23 July 2014 provides a predictable regulatory environment to enable secure and seamless electronic interactions between businesses, citizens and public authorities.

What are Trust Services?

As stated in the eIDAS regulation, a trust service is an e-service that is usually provided in exchange for remuneration and consists of:

  • Creation, verification and validation of e-signatures, electronic seals or electronic time stamps, certified e-delivery services and certificates related with the same.

  • Creation, verification and validation of certificates for website authentication.

  • Preservation of e-signatures, seals or certificates related with said services.

What is a Trust Service Provider?

A trust service provider uses electronic certification services like electronic signatures to guarantee the long-term integrity of an electronic document.

  • One of the most relevant aspects of the eIDAS ruling is the regulation of the so-called trust service providers. This is the figure of the technology provider with the required certifications and technical capacity to provide e-transactions with the trust mechanisms mentioned in the previous section: e-signature, time stamping, etc.
