The eIDAS regulation applies to electronic identification, trust services and electronic documents, for electronic transactions. It broadens the scope of the Directive 1999/93/EC and abrogates it. It aims to establish an interoperability framework for the different systems in place in the EU Member States to promote the development of a digital trust market.
The regulation lays down requirements for the mutual recognition of electronic identification means and electronic signatures for exchanges between public sector entities and users.
As electronic documents exchanges grow in number, high-level trust services must be implemented in order to ensure the security of the information system.
Digital identity is at the heart of these issues and that is why these trusted services include strong authentication, encryption for confidentiality, electronic signature for proof and timestamp for auditability.
In addition, using electronic signature makes it possible to ensure the signatory’s moral commitment and his/her consent in dematerialized form. Traceability and proof of the different actions performed should be useful for an audit.
But that is not all!
The eiDAS regulation is not just about compliance. Your organization may benefit even more from the Atos technologies.
