Seamless online contracting is just a digital signature away

GAïA EASYsign offers compliant and secure electronic signature capabilities using nCipher nShield HSMs

  • Reduced costs and time through remote signing of contractual agreements
    with streamlined business processes
  • More efficient authentication, contracting and signing as a result
    of innovative practices
  • Trusted verification of a client’s identity for the financial sector, meaning
    compliance with Know Your Customer and anti-money laundering requirements
  • Improved operational efficiency by easing the procedure for
    customers to complete a transaction online

THE PROBLEM: ORGANIZATIONS WANT TO ERADICATE SLOW CONTRACTING PROCESSES TO ENHANCE THE CUSTOMER JOURNEY

Before electronic signatures were legally recognized, all contracts had to be signed, shipped, faxed or scanned, and filed. This multistep process is not only time-consuming and costly, but paper document filing can be less secure than electronic filing systems. Misplaced or unsecured documents can easily find their way into the wrong hands.

THE CHALLENGE: BUILDING TRUST TO SUCCESSFULLY DRIVE DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION

The digital transformation happening across most industries has provided an additional impetus to adopt more secure and robust practices. However, the trust services market might still be considered unproven, especially when compared to other more mature technologies. Electronic Identity and Trust Services, as specified by the eIDAS regulation, prevent forgery, prove authenticity and build trust into the system. Trust services are perfectly suited to enhance your digital transformation.

THE SOLUTION: GAÏA EASYSIGN WITH NSHIELD HARDWARE SECURITY MODULE (HSMs)

As digital transformation has become commonplace, organizations around the world are seeking to provide more value-added trust services, which starts with an effective electronic identity management strategy. At the same time, legislative changes such as eIDAS pave the way for secure trust  services.
Oxyliom’s GAïA Trust Platform integrates with nCipher nShield Connect hardware security modules (HSMs) to protect the user’s private keys and helps you deliver a fully secured, compliant digital experience. GAïA EASYsign produces advanced digital signatures, according to PAdES/XAdES/eIDAS specifications, and enables organizations to manage identities using trust services. Your end users consent to transactions and validate their identities with authentication designed to comply with the required assurance level. GAIA EASYsign can manage the whole process with a strict respect for the signature and proof policies that ensure compliance with
legal requirements.

WHY USE NCIPHER NSHIELD HARDWARE SECURITY MODULES WITH GAÏA EASYSIGN?

Encryption keys handled outside the cryptographic boundary of a certified HSM are significantly more vulnerable to attack, which can lead to the compromise of critical keys. HSMs are the only proven and auditable way to secure valuable cryptographic material.
nCipher nShield HSMs integrate with GAIA Trust Platform to provide comprehensive logical and physical protection of the private keys used for signing documents and for creating signing proof files. This combination delivers an auditable method for enforcing security policies.
The HSM is used to maintain the integrity of signing credentials:
it handles the cryptographic keys that are used for signing, and it is the root of trust in issuing certificates that tie the user to the signing keys.
nCipher nShield Connect HSMs enables GAïA’s customers to:

  • Secure keys within carefully designed cryptographic boundaries that use robust access control mechanisms, so keys are only used for their authorized purpose.
  • Deliver superior performance to support demanding one-time signing key applications including RSA and ECC algorithms

nCipher nShield Connect HSMs provide a hardened, tamper resistant environment for performing secure cryptographic processing, key protection, and key management. With nCipher HSMs you can:

  • Provide a tightly controlled tamper resistant environment for safekeeping and managing encryption keys.
  • Enforce key use policies, separating security functions from
    administrative tasks.
  • Interface with applications using industry-standard APIs (PKCS#11, OpenSSL, JCE, CAPI, and CNG).

NCIPHER

nCipher, an Entrust Datacard company, is a leader in the general
purpose HSM market, empowering world-leading organizations
by delivering trust, integrity, and control to their business critical information and applications. By using the same proven technology customers depend on today to protect against threats and meet compliance, nCipher underpins the trust of tomorrow.
