Authentication Methods

To give a declaration of intent for electronic signature

Secure Authentication

In addition to unique identification, a secure authentication method for electronic remote signatures is also necessary for the electronic signature. Together, this ensures that only the holder can sign with his or her electronic signature.  In combination with the Signing Service, no other tools are needed, only your mobile phone.

 

Supported authentication methods

With the Signing Service, we offer you standard authentication methods approved and certified for the EU (in accordance with the eIDAS Regulation) and Switzerland (in accordance with the federal law ZertES) for the declaration of intent for the electronic signature.

It is also possible to use other authentication methods for the electronic signature and expression of will. However, this requires approval for ZertES or eIDAS approval from our responsible approval authorities. If this is an option for you, we will be happy to support you in this process.
