OT-Morpho, a leading global provider of embedded security software products, services and solutions, continues to demonstrate its commitment to enable all the citizens of the European Union to benefit from a secure digital identity by enabling trusted service providers to roll out eIDAS* certified compliant services.
This regulation provides EU wide recognition of electronic identification and trust services, including digital signature and digital seal. It is a key enabler to foster digitization, move to a paperless world and support the digital single market initiative (DSM). Any citizen will be able, with their identity issued by their country of origin, to securely identify and authenticate themselves, and electronically sign documents online when interacting with a service provider located in another Member State. EU citizens will benefit from a unified legal framework enabling further development of the digital economy.
Since the eIDAS* regulation came into force, OT-Morpho has obtained 10 Common Criteria security certifications for devices used for the creation of qualified electronic signature and/or seal. They are also certified as QSCD (as per eIDAS* regulation), and thus recognized within the European Economic Area (EEA).
“With a track record of more than 17 products being certified as QSCD, OT-Morpho is the key partner to deploy mobile and electronic identity and trust services”, said Jessica Westerouen van Meeteren, OT-Morpho, Executive Vice President, Government Identity Solutions, Morpho.
eIDAS* regulation is a cornerstone for the success of the Digital Single Market (DSM) for which the European commission estimates it could contribute €415 billion per year to the economy and create hundreds of thousands of new jobs. For individuals and companies, this means time saving and cost effective online operations coming with legal recognition in the European single market.
*Regulation (EU) No 910/2014 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 23 July 2014 on electronic identification and trust services for electronic transactions in the internal market and repealing Directive 1999/93/EC of 23 July 2014.
