Are SIGNiX digital signatures compliant with the EU Signature Directive?

Yes. Directive 1999/93/EC, approved in 1999, set out a detailed definition of several categories of electronic signatures. SIGNiX signatures easily fit into the definition of an Advanced Electronic Signature:

“ electronic signature which meets the following requirements:

  • It is uniquely linked to the signatory
  • It is capable of identifying the signatory
  • It is created using means that the signatory can maintain under his sole control
  • It is linked to the data to which it relates in such a manner that any subsequent change of the data is detectable...”

SIGNiX creates a unique signing identity for each signer which further identifies the signatory with SIGNiX’s strong user authentication options. The certificate is created and only invoked when the user needs to use it for signatures. Finally, because SIGNiX uses digital signatures, the data is directly linked to the signature and provides standards-based tamper-evidence.
