A Trust Service Provider (TSP) is an entity that provides any number of trust services involved with the creation, validation and preservation of e-signatures, e-seals or digital certificates.
What is the Cloud Signature Consortium (CSC)?
Ascertia is a CSC member, a group of industry and academic organisations committed to building a new standard for cloud-based digital signatures that will support web and mobile applications and comply with the most demanding electronic signature regulations in the world. The CSC was created to develop common protocols so that distributed applications and services can leverage digital signatures in a non-proprietary way.
Nothing is more important than a company’s data. There is also no larger risk in today’s digital economy to business continuity and regulatory compliance.
As experts in high-trust solutions, we are often asked about the benefits of commercial off the shelf products versus seemingly more affordable Software Development Kits, Open Source libraries or third party pre-compiled libraries or binaries.
We have become the first company in the world to pass the Common Criteria EAL4+ evaluation process against the standard EN 419 241-2 for our ADSS SAM hardware appliance, a remote Qualified Signature Creation Device (QSCD). This provides the highest level of confidence that users have sole control over their signing keys held on central servers or in the cloud.
MD Rod Crook recently spoke at the eID Forum, Tallinn. Rod’s talk, Enabling business applications to take advantage of eIDAS Remote Signatures, discussed how signing solutions are beneficial to organisations and what features they should be looking for when purchasing a solution.
