Electronic devices are now used in many interactions, even in legally binding transactions and for document validation. The digital expansion affects everyone, customers and companies alike, every day. As the virtual transfer of documents increases, international regulations are being established. In the wake of this digital revolution, the Cloud Signature Consortium was created with the aim of making sure that trust and user experience are improved in every remote signing solution.
The cloud-based signature landscape is evolving rapidly. In this ever-changing scenario, we need to define standards so companies can ensure high interoperability and limit technical problems. The Cloud Signature Consortium (CSC), founded in 2016, is gaining strong industry recognition and the expertise of a range of entities, which it is harnessing to develop new open standards.
Safelayer, a leading vendor of solutions for authentication and electronic signing in the cloud, is a founding member of the CSC. The CSC focuses on the end-user experience in software architectures that comply with regulations like eIDAS. Increased digitalization and mobility require creating new infrastructure standards for both mobile devices and web browsers. In enabling companies to implement an agile and global standard, the CSC fosters keeping the level of security high. Working groups of academic experts, trust services providers and software vendors are collaborating to design the future of cloud signing. These groups will publish the specifications they develop as an open and public standard.
The creation of a non-profit organization like the Cloud Signature Consortium represents a turning point for the market and another step in Safelayer Secure Communication's evolution.
