SuisseID and the EIDI-V-compliant organisation certificate now allow for documents to be provided with a legally valid signature and stored digitally in accordance with Swiss law. The use of these certificates is hardware-based: They are used either on a smart card with a corresponding reader or on a hardware security module (HSM), which is particularly suitable for the use of fast cryptographic services and also allows for large volumes to be signed.
Various partners offer tailored solutions. These include, for example, the relevant hardware (HSM) as well as software clients, which undertake format conversions in PDF, only sign a document's hash value and re-integrate this signature into the document. Complete workflow solutions are also offered, covering each individual step from the creation of a document to the signature circulation, dispatch or archiving stages.
