Supported signature types: simple, advanced and qualified
In each process you could need a different trust level, reachable by a specific type of signature solution. That’s why there are three main kinds of signature:
1. Simple Electronic Signature
It is the simplest type of e-signature, but the most used. At the same time this signature is the “weakest,” since it is defined by European regulations as “data in electronic form, enclosed or connected by logical association to other electronic data and used by the signer to sign.”
Using simple electronic signature, User can easily approve any document in few seconds, thanks to the “click & sign” experience, without any PIN.
So, this signature is easy and fast to use, but it doesn’t have a strong legal value.
2. Advanced Electronic Signature
This type of signature can be used in any context, except for agreements where greater protections are required and for which a qualified signature must be used, such as real estate property transactions, and other real estate laws. Customers can rely on different kinds of Advanced Electronic Signature offered by InfoCert. They are Biometric signature, PIN/OTP based signature and Software Certificate base signature.
The compliance of identification process is guaranteed.
So, this signature is more difficult to use than simple e-signature, but it has stronger legal value.
3. Qualified Electronic Signature
It is the stronger type of e-signature and it is defined by European regulations as “Advanced electronic signature created by a qualified electronic signature creation device and based on a qualified certificate.
Customers can rely on different kinds of Qualified Electronic Signature offered by InfoCert. They are long-term cloud certificate signature, one-shot cloud certificate signature and device-based signature.
So, this signature is more difficult to use than other’s type, but it has total legal value.
Each of these solutions optimizes your time and provides you with greater efficiency in managing dossiers, making for a greater return on investment.
