This Award represents an endorsement of the Spanish company’s international expansion.
The portal uses Safelayer’s KeyOne 3.0 PKI technology to provide users with online security and authentication services.
The technology by Safelayer, a Spanish company leader in PKI technology for digital identification, electronic signature and data encipherment, supports the security and authentication services provided by the Moroccan Social Security-CNSS (Caisse Nationale de Sécurité Sociale) through its web portal damancon.ma, which recently won an award from the International Social Security Association (ISSA).
The portal facilitates administrative exchanges among the over 12,000 companies affiliated to the Moroccan Social Security (Caisse Nationale de Sécurité Sociale-CNSS). It also processes some 700,000 salaries, which accounts for 60% of CNSS procedures.
The portal’s security and authentication, based on the use of digital certificates issued with Safelayer’s KeyOne 3.0 technology, were among the criteria highlighted when granting the first Prize, awarded at the Regional Social Security Forum for Africa on November 26. Safelayer customised and implemented a new PKI for the portal in collaboration with Open.Net, the company’s partner in Morocco and North Africa.
Among other features, the project included automatically and transparently renewing over 7,500 digital certificates in record time, and securing user data of companies affiliated to the Moroccan Social Security (CNSS). Safelayer’s KeyOne technology provides the digital certificates for the online authentication required by users to access the Social Security portal and electronically sign the salary statement forms and data files, as well as to pay the social contributions that companies affiliated to the Moroccan Social Security (CNSS) send every month.
Safelayer’s KeyOne technology has improved the digital certificate registration, renewal and revocation process, and enabled the deployment of trusted services using electronic signatures in a scalable manner according to the requirements of the CNSS portal.
The second part of the project involves integrating advanced electronic signature services with Safelayer’s TrustedX and KeyOne TSA technology, which will be used to validate signatures and add the time stamps provided by long-term electronic signatures. The Safelayer range of KeyOne and TrustedX products offers a complete digital certificate and electronic signature management system. It consists of: Registration and Certification Authority, Validation Entity, Timestamp Entity, and technology for integrating the PKI into corporate environments and client posts.
These solutions are based on market standards and allow for a fast and secure integration and customisation in all existing systems. Broadly speaking, PKI technology ensures and guarantees the integrity, authenticity, confidentiality and non-repudiation of any electronic transaction, protecting information and giving electronic signatures the same legal value that a handwritten signature has today.
