Types of online signatures
eIDAS (Electronic Identification, Authentication and Trust Services) is an EU regulation on electronic identification and trust services for electronic transactions in the European Single Market, and it defines 3 types of electronic signatures:
- Simple Electronic Signatures
- Advanced electronic or digital signature (AES)
- Qualified Electronic Signatures (QES)
The difference between the 3 types of signature is mainly the level of security that each type has, and the complexity of the signer identity verification system they each use. The simple electronic signature is currently the most widely used procedure.
The table below shows details per signature type as per eIDAS requirements.
