Remote e-identification and e-signatures
Trusting someone you have never seen
Over the past 20 years, the rise and rapid evolution of information and communication technologies has led to new digital services and usages responding to customers’ need for mobility, convenience, efficiency and rapidity in the services response time. In the banking industry for example, this evolution was reflected by the development of services such as online and mobile banking and their rapid adoption by the customers.
However, as these new electronic services grow in magnitude, the risks related to cybercrime, identity fraud and leakage of personal data are also increasing. As a consequence, many organizations have the same concerns:
- How can I ensure the identity of a counterpart (natural or legal person) during an electronic transaction?
- How can I perform digital business or administrative transactions in a convenient, secure and seamless manner while maintaining the legal value of these transactions?
In this context, allowing citizens and businesses to identify remotely when performing electronic transactions is key for answering this need for mobility and convenience.
Consequently, the digital world needs to be protected by strong security measures.
