This TISA - OIX working group previously produced the Explaining eSignatures paper, which explores the different of eSignature: Simple, Advance and Qualified and their legal applicability.
A separate paper, the Market Opportunity for eSignatures with Qualified Certificates, explores how UK Digital identity and Attributes Trust Framework certified Digital IDs can be used as the qualifiers to obtain Qualified Certificates for QES.
The purpose of this paper is to highlight the opportunity to use UK Digital identity and Attributes Trust Framework Certified Digital IDs to add evidentiary weight to a simple or advanced electronic signature through association of a ‘known user’ with the electronic signature. The paper explores how this would work and what use cases this may be applied to.
