An advanced electronic signature is a digital signature created with a digital certificate from an accredited Authentication Service Provider, following a face-to-face identification process with the subscriber.  It is deemed particularly reliable in law and is prima facie valid, i.e. is always assured to be valid and have been applied correctly, to eliminate the burden of proof to the distributing party.

Until quite recently, law stipulated that a statement or document could only be acknowledged, verified or made under oath with a handwritten signature. This was done to safeguard authenticity, and provide the necessary proof in the event of a legal dispute.

But with today’s rapidly developing business environment and innovative advancements in technology, it’s possible to achieve the same level of trust and authenticity with a few simple computer keystrokes.
