Cryptomathic Signer Achieves eIDAS Certification for Remote Qualified Electronic Signatures

Unique combination of eIDAS QSCD certification and ‘What You See Is What You Sign’ functionality creates new gold standard for non-repudiable remote electronic signatures

Banks and trust service providers across Europe can now benefit from a new gold standard in remote qualified electronic signatures, following the eIDAS certification of Cryptomathic’s remote qualified eSignature solution, Signer.

Signer’s certification significantly raises the bar in non-repudiation for remote e-signature services. Not only does Signer join an elite few eIDAS-approved Qualified Signature Creation Devices (QSCD), it also offers What You See Is What You Sign (WYSIWYS) functionality. This combination elevates Signer to a high-assurance level that is unmatched anywhere else in the remote eSignature industry.

“Signer’s eIDAS certification at the device level greatly reduces the steps that trust service providers must take to qualify each of their remote eSignature implementations,” comments Guillaume Forget, Managing Director, Cryptomathic GmbH. “In the past, trust service providers had to apply a long and complex certification process to each deployment before they could establish eIDAS-level qualification. Now, by using Signer, not only can they reduce the time and cost of establishing certification, they can also take advantage of Signer’s WYSIWIS functionality and benefit from a uniquely high-level of assurance in remote non-repudiation.”

Cryptomathic is an industry leader and assists multiple trust services providers and banks to enable their customers to electronically sign documents and transactions at the highest 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 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.
