The Cloud Signature Consortium aims to make it simple for EU businesses and governments to successfully comply with this new regulation. The vision is to create a single digital market, across Europe and the globe.
The goal is to provide a common technical specification that will make solutions interoperable and suitable for uniform adoption in the global market.
Our technical specification enables secure signing transactions through web browsers and mobile devices, from your desk or on the go!
Recipients will be able to easily sign documents stored in the cloud with any device, without having to download them first.
No complex renewal procedures, no risk of token loss or theft: keys and certificates will be fully managed by Trust Service Providers in the cloud.
Easier, faster, better! No more smart cards or USB tokens. No more drivers to install. No more client platform dependencies.
Adobe promotes an industrial cooperation initiative on the development of common technical specifications for Cloud Signature.
As eIDAS rules enter into force on July 1st, 2016, the Cloud Signature Consortium publicly announces its mission and starts its activity.
Specifications to standardize the three-corner model between solution, technology and service providers will be released.
The Consortium will release the first cloud-based implementations of its technical specifications in the first half of 2017.
Digital signatures are the most advanced and secure type of electronic signature, increasingly used by consumers, businesses and governments all over the world. However, using standards-compliant digital signatures today can be a cumbersome, time consuming process that keeps people tethered to their desktop.
The European Commission has worked hard to bring eIDAS to life. And yet, enabling broad adoption of digital signatures in Europe will take more than just a regulation. To be successful, they need a complete ecosystem of solutions, technology, and trust service providers that are fully aligned in support of eIDAS requirements.
Compelling digital experiences are changing the way we interact, entertain, work, and relate. Consumers and businesses alike not only expect – but demand – simple and engaging products and services from the technology industry. The new standard will be critical to furthering digital transformation of business on a global scale.
"We embrace open standards"
Adobe has a history of pioneering and advancing industry standards like PDF. We embrace open standards and, where none exist, we help create them. We are proud to advance an open standard for cloud-based digital signatures.
"A milestone of the new era"
Finally, after a decade of proprietary projects, Cloud Signature is entering a new phase of maturity that will significantly extend its use. Intesi Group is very pleased to be part of this initiative, a milestone of the new era.
"Simple and secure"
Cloud signature will make digital signatures as simple as handwritten ones, while providing the same security as a smartcard device. Certinomis is very proud to contribute to this essential seek for interoperability.
InfoCert is a proud promoter of the Cloud Signature Consortium as we believe interoperability is fundamental for a wider adoption of trust solutions, which are the key enabler of any business digital transformation.
With more than six billion digital and electronic signature transactions processed every year through Adobe Sign and Adobe Document Cloud, we are focused on moving the signature industry forward.
"A new global standard"
Universign is proud to be a key player of this major initiative, that we believe has to chance to become a global standard for cloud-based digital signatures and make secure transaction available on cloud applications and mobile devices.
