D-TRUST, a founding member of the Cloud Signature Consortium

Digital signatures are the most secure type of electronic signature. However, generating these signatures can be rather complicated. In an effort to change this, the Cloud Signature Consortium (CSC) was established in response to an initiative by Adobe. This group of leading European manufacturers, suppliers and academic organisations is committed to building a new, open standard for cloud-based digital signatures. D-TRUST is the partner for the implementation of the remote signature in the Adobe platform Adobe Sign.
