The electronic signature is the legal and functional equivalent of the handwritten signature.

Preservation of qualified electronic seals

Preserving qualified electronic seals provides additional guarantees to the data retained after the application of signature processes. Along with the original documents, this provides confidence in the preservation process over time.

Generation of qualified electronic time stamps

An electronic time stamp demonstrates a series of dates, proving that those dates were not altered after the moment they were obtained. This is applied by inserting a record in the document based on Universal Coordinated Time. This generates data evidence for a specific moment.

Trust Services FAQs

Integrated into the technological infrastructure offered by EDICOM, trust services provide our solutions with mechanisms that guarantee the security, integrity and confidentiality of electronic communications. Below you will find some frequently asked questions about these services:

 

A Certification Authority is an entity authorized by a public administration to issue electronic certificates. The authority  is responsible for guaranteeing the validity of digital certificate data. EDICOM is an accredited Certification Authority for Europe, Mexico and Colombia.

This is a document signed electronically by a Certification Service Provider that links signature verification data to a signatory confirming its authenticity.

A Certification Service Provider such as EDICOM identifies the the certificate's public code with its owner and makes it known to all those who wish to contact it. The certificate's private code is only known by its owner.

It lets each party know of an electronic communication, the exchange of encrypted information to ensure the confidentiality of data, and the electronic signature of documents to prove the integrity and origin of the information.

There are different types of certificates depending on their intended use and the level of security implemented in communications. There are qualified signature certificates on a secure device that require the use of a device such as a cryptographic card in which code information is stored. There are also software certificates that can be recognized or not, and that can be installed directly on a terminal without the need for cryptographic cards or additional software.

This is a certificate that requires the accreditation of the natural or legal person before the authority responsible for issuing the electronic certificate. It is a type of certificate in which the identity of the certificate holder is verified before the Certification Authority, which verifies the identity of the certificate holder to third parties. 

This is a set of data associated with a message that ensures signer identity and message integrity.

The signature process is performed using asymmetric cryptography or public code techniques.

This system has 2 keys. One is a private key known only to the owner of the certificate that allows data encryption. Another public key is distributed and allows data decryption. The issued key pairs work in such a way that only the information encrypted by the private key can be decrypted by the public key, and vice versa.

Thus, messages encrypted with the private key can be decrypted by the public key, allowing the authenticity and originality of the documents to be accredited.

Likewise, data encrypted with the public key can only be decrypted with the private key, thus guaranteeing the confidentiality of communications addressed to the certificate owner, since only the certificate owner has the public key.

It is a cryptographic system that allows data to be encrypted with a key, which must also be used to decrypt it.

It involves cancelling its validity before its expiration date. Revocation can be requested at any time, especially when the holder believes that their private keys are known by others. It takes effect from the effective date of revocation that appears next to the serial number of the certificate in a document signed and published by the Certification Authority.

Increase Process and Communications Security

The eIDAS regulation provides a cross-border legal framework that ensures the interoperability of electronic identification mechanisms in all EU member states.
