QSCD FOR REMOTE SIGNING
An essential security piece of qualified signing deployments
Under eIDAS, a QSCD is a secure hardware device approved for the creation of signature and seal data. It is a mandatory element for the generation of qualified electronic signatures, the highest level of signature type recognized by the European Union.
The Entrust nShield Connect XC and Solo XC HSMs are certified against Common Criteria (CC) CEN EN 419 241-5 as QSCD for qualified signatures and seals.
HSM + SAM = future-ready QSCD
While it is currently possible to use a standalone, certified HSM as a QSCD for remote signing, the next eIDAS Implementing Act will introduce a new QSCD standard requiring an HSM and a SAM bundled together.
Entrust has developed a SAM and can provide you with an HSM+SAM bundle today to help you prepare for the future.
