Every day, thousands of documents are signed electronically. But are they legally valid? It is important to ensure that the signed documents we collect have enough legal backing to defend them in casw of litigation. How? Through electronic evidences.
There are different types of electronic signatures: simple signature, advanced signature and qualified signature. The qualified one have the strictest security levels set by the eIDAS 910/2014 regulation. But how do we know if a document is legally valid? Through the collection of electronic evidences.
Electronic evidences are the data collected when a document has been electronically signed and that guarantees its integrity: identity of the signatory, date of sending the document, time at which it was issued. Electronic evidences attest that the person in question has actually signed the document and therefore measure the quality or strength of the electronic signature.
The value we offer from Ivnosys is our role as a Trusted Third Party and Qualified Trusted Service Provider, reinforcing the security, trust and reliability of shared documents.

Electronic evidences collect certain information depending on the signature method we use. We tell you about the electronic evidences that are generated according to the different types of signature:
You have information such as the time of delivery of the document, the integrity of the document, the acceptance or rejection of the message or the recipient signature.
In addition to the simple signature’s evidences, it provides more evidences about the identity of the signatory: his mobile device. In this way, we have the proof that the signatory has really signed the document, since to do so, he has received a code in his mobile, to a phone number that he provided us previously.
Thanks to the pen signature on a specific device (similar to a tablet), a wide variety of data is collected: pen contact position, speed, pressure, inclination… providing the maximum security in case of dispute.
It is one of the signature methods with the highest ranking in the law. Solid evidences are collected such as the identification of the signatory as the holder of the digital certificate, in addition to have a time stamp that dates the time of signing and the integrity of the document.
Qualified signature method with maximum legal validity and using a certificate in the cloud. The identity of the signatory is indisputably proven, with an audit of the person who signed (the holder of the certificate or the persons to whom the certificate was delegated), when the certificate was used and the sites to which we have accessed, among other data.
From Ivnosys, we offer our electronic signature platform, IvCert, which offers all electronic signature methods to organizations.
