Here is a beautiful subject! Germany Phone Number List and potentially very complex. You will surely be confronted with it at one point or another in your project since when you have dematerialized the inbound channels and the processing of your documents / files / mails, the question will inevitably arise of dematerializing the outgoing documents which engage the responsibility of your company, your association, or administration, even the personal responsibility of the signatory. The civil code stipulates that the electronic signature has the same probative force as the handwritten signature, under conditions. Below article 1366: “An electronic document

has the same probative force as a written document on paper, provided that the person from whom it emanates can be duly identified and that it is drawn up and kept in conditions such as to guarantee its integrity ” These are obviously the conditions that lead to extraordinary complexity. Indeed, technologies evolve so much that it is almost always possible to contest an electronic identification or to contest the integrity of an electronic document, that is to say to repudiate having signed a document. This is also true for the paper document but here I imagine that the technologies and expertise are older and better known or recognized by the courts (graphological expertise, spectrometric analysis of paper, ink, etc.) which limits a

little more risk. To eliminate this possibility of dispute, the European Union has built a regulatory framework (eIDAS regulation – For electronic IDentification And trust Services) and defined the conditions for making the electronic signature qualified. Small step back before approaching the qualified electronic signature: we often hear about signature with probative value. You should know that almost any electronic signature that relies on authentication and whose signed document is stored in a company information system managed by an IT department who can pretty much do his job, has probative value. The only electronic signature that would have no probative value (and still) is the one that you scan on a paper with your smartphone and that


you affix on a document with an office software or a drawing software on your PC, your Mac. or your tablet; there is no solid evidence that you did it, no solid evidence that the file was not tampered with by someone after it was signed. However, the eIDAS regulations have defined the conditions which allow an electronic signature to reverse the burden of proof (ie it is deemed by default to authenticate its author and absolutely guarantee the integrity of the document). This is the qualified signature (name eIDAS). The conditions to be met for the qualified signature are draconian. They involve certificates (valid for limited periods – 1, 2 or 3 years), issued by trusted third parties who are themselves certified (by ETSI , ANSSI or LSTI – itself

accredited by COFRAC). Certificates that must be installed on their workstation. Certificates that require hardware – usually with biometric recognition, hardware which I imagine must be certified by these same bodies as well. The signing software itself needs to be certified by these bodies (I imagine they have done code audits). And signature verification software must also be certified by these same organizations. That’s all well and good, but it is incredibly technologically complex, and this has a huge impact on the ergonomics, use and costs of these solutions. Imagine that you had to equip in your company 500 signers with this type

of material and signing certificates! and that for reasons of technological or regulatory obsolescence you do this every year. You will quickly have to calculate what the BIC paper and pen costs you. However, let us give back to Caesar what belongs to Caesar… it works, it is already not bad. However, I am not sure that a 6-year contract signed in 2019 with a qualified signature will still be considered a qualified signature in 2025. As an example, I can now sign a document in a qualified manner with a USB key that only asks me for a 4-digit PIN code. What would prevent me from giving my key and PIN to a colleague? nothing. So what is this
