Security at the heart of signing services

Strengthen your eIDAS-compliant signing services and create a Qualified Signature Creation Device (QSCD) by integrating our Signature Activation Module (SAM)* and CC EAL 4+ and FIPS 140-2 L3-certified HSMs with your signing infrastructures.

*Estimated CC EAL 4+ certification completion: end of 2021

QSCD and eIDAS Compliance

The concept of QSCD is uniquely tied to eIDAS. It is a mandatory element for the generation of qualified signatures and seals, which have the highest level of legal recognition in the European Union. Without a QSCD, a qualified trust service provider can only generate advanced signatures and seals.
