Safelayer takes part in the ETSI PLUGTESTS international interoperability tests

Safelayer Secure Communications has taken part in the international interoperability Plugtests organized by the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI). The tests demonstrated the consistency and interoperability of the e-signature standards by assessing the quality of the products from the world's major security developers. The ETSI Plugtests set out to assess the consistency of the products by testing the interoperability levels of the e-signature functions for ETSI's standard advanced e-signature formats XAdES, CAdES and PAdES.

Safelayer, a leader in the security and trust market for information and communication technologies, has participated in all editions of the ETSI Plugtests, which have been held since 2008. This edition’s tests were held last December and saw companies from 18 countries participating.

Safelayer took part with its TrustedX platform that supports the PAdES standard (ETSI TS 102 778 – PDF Advanced Electronic Signature) for electronically signing PDF documents. The PAdES technical specification defines support for ISO 32000-1 format digital signatures and defines additional data structures for preserving the validity of the signatures over years or even decades.  ISO 32000-1 is the basis of the PDF/A-2 format for preserving visual documents over time, which will enable standardizing the e-signature for this type of document.

Safelayer’s TrustedX provides applications with authentication, e-signature and data encryption mechanisms under a global services approach in a single platform that is centrally managed. As the platform provides security and trust services—for both corporate and public institutions—strict standard support for the signature formats accepted by the sector is essential.

Safelayer is a pioneer in the interoperability tests. It has participated in this type of initiative since 2007, when it took part in the tests organized by the Next Generation Electronic Commerce Promotion Council of Japan (ECOM).
