Product description

White-label remote e-sealing solution by Swisscom Trust Services

White-label remote e-sealing solution

The embedded e-sealing solution from Swisscom Trust Services, in collaboration with software partners, offers regulated e-seals for public authorities that meet the requirements of the Technical Administrative Regulations (TAV) in the Swiss Signature Act ZertES. The electronic authority seal represents the digital version of the traditional stamp used by government authorities or public institutions to ensure the authenticity and integrity of official documents. By implementing these regulated e-seals, public institutions can advance their digitization process and enhance the efficiency of their services by minimizing administrative analog efforts and reducing processing times. The implementation of the authority e-seal represents a pivotal advancement in the journey towards a digital governance, offering substantial advantages to both the governing bodies and the people of Switzerland.

Citizens validate the seals of your authority.

Citizens validate the seals of your authority.

In Swiss legislation, regulated e-seals from authorities are precisely defined, allowing the validator to provide accurate information about the issuing authority when verifying signatures and seals. By using these official seals, public offices can comply with legal requirements and strengthen citizens' trust in their communications and decisions. Each regulated authority seal is combined by a qualified timestamp, similar to regulated e-seals.

During an application's sealing process, only the hash value of the respective digital document is sent to Swisscom Trust Services. This approach ensures that Swisscom Trust Services never has access to the content of the digital records. Also, at the software partner's request, each electronic seal can be combined with a qualified timestamp, providing additional assurance of integrity and authenticity regarding the time of sealing the document. Authority seals can be verified through validators.
