Universign, a Trust Service Provider

What is a trust service? 

Trust services are defined in Article 3 of the European eIDAS regulation. Universign solutions are electronic services designed to:  Create, verify and validate electronic signatures, electronic seals, electronic time stamps and certificates related to those services; and to preserve electronic signatures, electronic seals or certificates related to those services.

What is a Trust Service Provider  

The 2016 European eIDAS regulation created the status of Trust Service Provider (TSP), who offers services that are recognised across the euro area. Article 3 of the regulation also defines the concept of TSP. A TSP is “a natural or a legal person who provides one or more trust services either as a qualified or as a non-qualified trust service provider”. To be a qualified TSP, the provider has to offer qualified trust services and apply for TSP status with a supervisory body, such as ANSSI in France. Universign is a Trust Service Provider qualified under the European eIDAS regulation. As such, Universign ensures compliant, secure and fair digital transactions. 

Universign’s role as a Trust Service Provider is also to provide all security guarantees, in particular legal safeguards, in order to offer electronic signature services that give probative value to the documents signed.
