Remote signature with sign-me
Whether contract management, granting loans, taking part in public calls for tenders or signing important hospital forms: sign-me, Bundesdruckerei's remote signature solution, allows you to handle your paper-based signature processes in an entirely electronic process that is not just simple and convenient, but also legally recognised throughout the EU.
Signing online using a tablet or smartphone
The EU’s new regulation on electronic identification and trust services (eIDAS) has paved the way for a new, simplified procedure for electronic signatures. The components used to generate the signature are not stored on a card, but in the secure IT environment of a qualified trust service provider (previously referred to as a trust center). This means that the electronic signature can now also be triggered remotely, for instance, using mobile devices like tablets and smartphones.
One-stop solution for all signature levels
sign-me is designed for all the signature levels laid down in the eIDAS Regulation: from simple to advanced right through to qualified electronic remote signatures. The latter meets the written form requirement and has the same legal standing as a hand-written signature.
The sign-me web-based service provides you with a one-stop solution for remote signatures: from user identification to the electronic signature. All your customers need is a PC or tablet, an Internet connection and a smartphone.
Various state-of-the-art, secure procedures can be used for identity verification, including the online ID function with the German ID card (from the end of 2017), online identification and point-of-sale identification.
If the ID check is successful, the document can be electronically signed. With the highest signature level, the remote signature is triggered by entering a mobile TAN after logging in with a user name and password. A web interface allows you to integrate sign-me directly into your online offers and software applications for document management and document archiving.
The first eIDAS-compliant remote signature “Made in Germany”
Digital signatures with sign-me meet the strict requirements of the eIDAS Regulation for remote signatures. This was confirmed by TÜV Informationstechnik GmbH in a complex test procedure and the Federal Network Agency has now included sign-me in the eIDAS National Trusted List. This means that sign-me is Germany’s first eIDAS-compliant remote signature solution.
