And after legislating, what else?

In the previous post I commented that electronic signatures can be a source of efficiency for countries, but this requires to rule correctly. The whole thing does not end here.

Once the legal and regulatory framework is defined, it is time to put aside governments and to focus on organizations, both new certification services providers and corporations that want to make use of electronic signatures as a competitive advantage.

Legislator: no null rule (with common sense)

Electronic or digital signature (mostly in ES) is not only a source of efficiency for businesses or governments, but also for countries. Not surprisingly, their development is a priority of the European Commission and from many countries around the world.

But in order to be able to use electronic signatures with legal guarantees, so you can replace the handwritten signature or other authentication mechanisms of the identity of the parties, expression of will or integrity of information exchanged, it is necessary to legislate.

I'm siiiiiiiigning in the cloud

(music from "Singing in the rain" in the background)

Past March 14th Barcelona hosted the Workshop on ETSI ESI in the cloud signature, which I had the opportunity to attend (well, to the open session, of course.)

There were the cream of the electronic signature at the European level to discuss what the market has demanded for years and only a few countries have heard: qualified electronic signature in the cloud, meaning that the signatory does not carry signing keys, in cryptographic Smartcard, cryptographic USB, eID card or other device, but they (signing keys) are in a server and you can access them easily, with technologies that ordinary people more or less dominate.
