Qualified Electronic Signature
Qualified Electronic Signature is an electronic signature that is compliant to EU Regulation No 910/2014 (eIDAS Regulation) for electronic transactions within the internal European market. It enables parties to verify the integrity and authenticity of signed electronic data exchange over long periods of time. The difference between the advanced electronic signature and the qualified electronic signature is the addition of a qualified certificate and the use of a certified Secure Signature Creation Device. This certificate is issued by a qualified trust service provider.
