Digi-ID™ Xe digital signatures provide all the same functionality as the standard Digi-ID™, except that the Digi-ID™ Xe is an EU qualified digital signature. This means that it meets all of the EU regulations for using legally binding digital signatures within the Euro Zone.
Getting Your Digi-ID™ e Signature
Using Digi-ID™ w/ Digi-Seal™ Desktop
Digi-ID™ Xe are used by EU citizens, governments and organisations that want to streamline paper based processes, submit bids for EU contracts, or to issue EU qualified e-invoices, bills & statements. Each Digi-ID™ Xe is issued and managed by the Digi-CA™ Certificate Authority [CA] Service.
Digi-ID™ Xe qualified digital signatures can be used to sign:
For individual users, the Digi-ID™ Xe are supplied on a Secure Signature Creation Device [SSCD], such as a Digi-Token™ or Digi-Card™. The Digi-ID™ Xe Server, for use by an organisation, is also supplied on an SSCD and this can be either a Digi-Card™ or HSM.
Getting Digi-ID™ Xe qualified digital signatures is not straightforward. Although there are the same three steps in issuing a Digi-ID™ Xe as there are in a standard Digi-ID™ Xp, for each qualified digital signature, you are required to complete and sign a paper document. This document is then sent to the Digi-CAST2 production team that will then individually issue each signature (i.e. this cannot be controlled, or issued by personnel in your organisation).
