About Safelayer technology
Safelayer solutions provide the necessary security mechanisms in a context requiring compliance with current regulations, such as the LISI Act (Ley de Medidas de Impulso de la Sociedad de la Información) and Act 11/2007 (Ley de Acceso Electrónico de los Ciudadanos a los Servicios Públicos) in Spain. This allows for the competitive enhancement of systems by means of remote interactions via electronic platforms, thereby eliminating the use of paper. The distinctive values of the products developed by Safelayer are: maximum quality, security, interoperability, modularity and flexibility.
PKI (Public Key Infrastructure) is a key technology for developing services for eGovernment, eHealth, eBanking, eInsurance and large corporations. These environments require trustworthy mechanisms capable of offering ample security and legal guarantees in electronic interactions with the general population, customers, companies and government institutions. In fact, PKI technology is also the basis for the protection of military information assets, providing cryptographic mechanisms and products evaluated for use in defense environments.
Safelayer's KeyOne technology allows for the development of advanced public key infrastructures (PKI), including the creation and management of digital certificates, certificate validation and electronic time stamping. KeyOne is notably designed to comply with the security requirements for digital certificate management systems for electronic signatures (CWA 14167-1) and holds the maximum certification, Common Criteria (ISO/IEC 15408) level EAL4+.
