eIDAS: enable
qualified signatures

Secure, compliant & inexpensive

eIDAS & Keyp

Keyp enables organizations to offer eIDAS-compliant qualified signatures with ease and at minimal cost. The open and federated architecture allows for maximum agility and fast deployment. Operating cost, or cost per signature, are significantly reduced. This is possible due to federation of the signee’s verified identity attributes and decentralized storage of personal data (GDPR-compliance).

A third-party archiving service securely stores the transaction logs and ensures auditability of the signatures in case of disputes.

Verified identity

Initial ID verification via eID,
Video-ident, bank account verification, etc.

Verification can be re-used across multiple domains
(i.e. not company nor transaction specific)

Multi-factor authentication (MFA)

Keyp supports several authentication solutions:

ownership, biometric (e.g. face, voice, behavior) and knowledge-based (e.g. password, PIN)

Continuous identity verification via a strong customer authentication (2FA or MFA)

Secure & decentral storage

Tokenization of verified identity information

‘Blind’ storage without server component

GDPR compliant

Archiving & logging

Identification and authentication steps logged and archived

Certificate Authority (CA) log archived after performing signatures

eIDAS compliant and auditable documentation

eIDAS in a nutshell

The eIDAS regulation essentially stipulates that a legal court or government body must be able to audit an electronic signature and verify its legality. It must be cryptographically signed with a credential issued by a Trust Service provider and time-stamped to prevent tampering. Trust is the foundation our economies are build on. This is what makes businesses flourish and grow. With this in mind, the European Union’s passed a regulation for electronic IDentification, Authentication and trust Services (short, eIDAS). It sets a regulation on,

or a set of standards for, electronic identification and trust services for electronic transactions in the European Single Market. (source: EUR-Lex) The purpose is to foster trust and increase efficiency and effectiveness of electronic transactions by providing a basis for secure electronic interaction between user, private businesses and public entities. eIDAS came into force on July 1st, 2016. As of 29 September 2018, the mutual recognition of eIDs will become mandatory for all European countries.
