What is an electronic signature?

An electronic signature gives individuals and legal entities the secure e-identification mechanisms that allow them to perform activities where a digital signature replaces a handwritten one with identical legal guarantees.

An e-signature guarantees source authenticity, i.e., the identity of the document owner. Authenticity is ensured by applying a digital signature to the document.

The eIDAS Regulation defines three types of electronic signatures

Basic or simple electronic signature

The regulations define this as “data in an electronic format attached to other electronic data or data associated with them in a logical manner and used by the signatory to sign”. It would include scanned signatures, for example and is a service which the eIDAS Regulation does not change with respect to previous legislation.

Advanced electronic signature

Identifies the user, is unique and is added to the document in a way that makes it invalid if the content is modified. Signatures are generated from a digital certificate, issued by an accredited provider in the signatory's name.

Qualified electronic signature

A qualified electronic signature is an advanced e-signature created via a qualified e-signature creation device and based on a qualified electronic signature certificate. The core advantage of this type of electronic signature is that it is the only one that acts as equivalent to a handwritten signature, with the same legal validity across all EU member states.

Discover our long-term e-Archiving solution

EDICOMLta (EDICOM Long Term Archiving) is the certified and long-term electronic archiving system that EDICOM offers as a qualified trust service provider. Our system is designed in line with the eIDAS Regulation, the maximum regulation on electronic archiving in Europe.

The service applies identification methods, digital signature and electronic time stamping pursuant to the eIDAS regulation to all archived documents and data to ensure that file integrity and authenticity is protected over time.

How does it work?

Time stamping authority to ensure non-alteration and integrity

With timestamping it is possible to demonstrate that a data set is present and has not been altered after a specific point in time.

A timestamping authority such as EDICOM acts as a trusted third party testifying to the existence of electronic data on a specific date and time.

There are many uses for digital timestamping, such as certified invoice scanning, safekeeping of all types of e-documents and any process that needs to certify that certain electronic data were present at a given time in the form they were presented to the timestamping authority.
