eSignature (electronic stamp, electronic seal, electronic delivery, electronic storage, identification schemes)
In the world of information technology, a handwritten signature on a paper document as a proof of authorship and acceptance of responsibility for the contents of the paper document is replaced by electronic signature of digital documents. While a handwritten signature can be falsified, it is impossible to do it with an electronic signature. Electronic signing of the document allows the recipient of the document to verify the unchanged content i.e. allows the integrity of the signed document. Based on an electronic signature, the recipient of the document can determine the identity of the document signer, while the signatory may not deny signing of the signed document.
Digitalisation in the Republic of Serbia has gone a step further with the introduction of a qualified electronic certificate in the cloud. The Office for IT and eGovernment is registered in the Register of Qualified Trusted Service Providers for the Service of managing a qualified tool for creating an electronic signature remotely (in the cloud).
A qualified electronic certificate in the cloud (ITE CA) provides the user with electronic identification of a high level of reliability and gives the ability to use his qualified electronic signature remotely.
In this way, the user is not tied to the computer and can sign at a time and place that suits him. The user must install the ConsentID mobile application and use it to approve a qualified electronic signature remotely.
The term of validity of a qualified electronic certificate in the cloud is five years.
