ELECTRONIC SEALS (ORGANIZATIONAL SIGNATURE)

The European “Regulation on Electronic Identification and Trust Services for Electronic Transactions in the Internal Market” (eIDAS-VO) will in future allow companies and administrations to centrally stamp digital documents with an electronic seal, the digital company stamp.

While the electronic signature is always issued to a natural person, the electronic seal refers to a legal entity, i.e. an online stamp for authorities, organizations and administration. Electronic seals can be used wherever a personal signature is not necessary, but proof of authenticity is desired, for example on official notices, documents, bank statements and invoices. If an authority or a company seals a document electronically, it is permanently identifiable as the sender of the document and at the same time protects the data from unnoticed changes.

If an authority or a company seals a document electronically, it is permanently identifiable as the sender of the document and at the same time protects the data from unnoticed changes.

The newly specified seal can consist of one Seal card or stored in Hardware Security Modules (HSM), which makes the use of electronic seals and their processes much easier. Because electronic seals are not personal, they are easier to use than electronic signatures. The effort for legally binding electronic processes and documents is thus significantly reduced.
