Create Advanced and Qualified Electronic Signatures and Seals

eIDAS acknowledges that not all electronic signatures are created equal. Depending on the technology and validation behind the signature, some types of signatures are inherently more trustworthy than others and withstand higher legal scrutiny. To help facilitate interoperability and acceptance across borders, the regulation created a common framework for secure electronic signatures, including standardized assurance levels.

With GlobalSign's solutions, you can create advanced or qualified (the highest level) electronic signatures and seals. Signatures are in the name of individuals; seals are in the name of organizations or other corporate bodies.

As a qualified trust service provider (QTSP), GlobalSign is able to provide certificates for qualified electronic signatures and seals.

  • Qualified signatures creation device (QSCD) included
  • GlobalSign is an AATL member so signatures and seals are automatically trusted by Adobe and other leading programs

Qualified electronic signatures and seals are available to individuals and organizations through GlobalSign’s token-based deployment. In keeping with eIDAS requirements, each signing identity, whether individual or corporate body, is verified and issued a qualified certificate stored on a qualified signature creation device (the token).
