A new era for e-signatures – how eIDAS is shaping the future of high-trust signing

eIDAS has helped herald a new era of e-signing for businesses operating across Europe. E-signatures provide a fast, secure, efficient and cost-effective alternative to paper signing and the eIDAS regulation ensures legal certainty across the EU with its requirements for Basic, Advanced and Qualified e-signatures.

NIST shortlisted 26 algorithms for focal post-quantum research - get all the details here

It has taken over two decades to establish and secure the current e-commerce applications. The security of most of these systems principally relies on cryptographic algorithms which have served the purpose till now. Since the initiation and evolution of quantum computing, some cryptographic algorithms have threats. To mitigate the security gap, numerous post-quantum algorithms have been proposed. This article enlightens the journey towards post-quantum algorithms and security parameters of the newly proposed post-quantum algorithms.

Crypto-agile HSMs by Utimaco used in research for post-quantum cryptography

With every passing day, the need for crypto agility becomes more and more important. Whether you believe quantum computing is 10 years, 20 years or more away, the inevitability is that it is approaching fast. In the world of cryptography, Key Management Systems (KMS) are already well down the path of developing technologies for a quantum world. However, the KMS is only one portion of a total cryptography solution. This is why many leading technology organizations have begun research on Hardware Security Modules (HSMs) and their role in crypto agility.

Michele Mosca: Quantum computing will decimate the security infrastructure of the digital economy (video)

Quantum computing will decimate the security infrastructure of the digital economy. Quantum computing in general is certainly a blessing to humanity in many respects and it promises to disrupt evolution of technology in more than one dimensions. But it is also a curse to security, as cryptographic algorithms that proved to be secure for decade may be breached by quantum computers within minutes.

eIDAS & strong customer authentication under PSD2

Since the beginning of 2018, PSD2 or the 2nd Payment Services Directive is national law in all EU member states. Some countries have implemented the new directive early on, such as Germany and the UK, but for some it is still work in progress today.

Is blockchain fit for the post-quantum future?

Cryptography is one of the cornerstones of all blockchain infrastructures. Hashes link blocks together and public-private key cryptography helps secure data and verify transactions. A major advantage of blockchain is that its cryptography man es it virtually untamperable, with changes in the crypto being virtually impossible.

Qualified Signature Creation Devices (QSCD) under eIDAS – The example of the Bank-Verlag Signature Activation Module (SAM)

In our recent blog post series about the eIDAS regulation, we have addressed local signing and the difference with remote signing (or server signing), which relies on a Trust Service Provider (TSP) to remotely generate and manage the signing keys on the signatory’s behalf.
