Efficiency of signature by authentication

Not every person wants to go through an identification process every time, especially for a signature in the professional environment. The unique identification and the independent signature with secure 2-factor authentication is extremely efficient in everyday life.

Choice of identification methods

Swisscom is expanding its possibilities for different identification methods:

  • Video identification
  • Identification with login into your own bank account (Klarna ID)
  • Courier service
  • Point-of-sale (POS) identification
  • RA app

With the RA app, any RA agent can become and is carried out by the identification process, which supports over 100 nations worldwide.

Secure and approved two-factor authentication methods

In the RA service, identification is combined with a two-factor authentication, which is approved for signature by regulators in the EU and Switzerland. Through these methods, the signer confirms its identity during the signature and expresses the will to sign. The following procedures are available:

The RA process

All identification procedures, as well as the RA app, must first ensure identity on the basis of identification documents (passport, ID card).
In a second step, an authentication means is connected to the identification based on the mobile phone number. The collected data is signed by the responsible identification body or in case of a RA app by the RA agent and stored as evidence in the RA service in a specially protected database. For each evidence, the RA service sends a confirmation SMS to the identified person. This contains a URL to the terms of use of the Swisscom Trust Services. Upon confirmation of these terms of use, the identified person can sign using its chosen method for authentication: password/one-time password, MobileID or MobileID Authenticator App .

RA-App: Scalability by RA Agent network

Customers and partners conclude an RA agency contract. The partner designates a first RA agent, the so-called “RA Master Agent”. This RA Master Agent must be identified by Swisscom or a Swisscom partner. After a first remote training with Swisscom he can identify other colleagues and determine them as RA agents and RA master agents. RA agents can then download and install the “Swisscom RA” app from the Android or iOS App Store. After successfully completing an e-learning training session, they can log in to the Swisscom RA app and carry out identifications.

The RA Master Agents have access to an administration portal of the RA Services to manage the RA (Master) agents. This allows the organization to build a proper network of RA agents for identification through self roll-out.
