What is Digital Signature?
Digital Signature is an innovative new cloud-based service from TOC Biometrics which allows organisations – both commercial and governmental – to incorporate simple electronic signatures into their PDF documents.
As a key part of the TOC ID Verification system – utilising advanced facial and fingerprint biometrics and public key infrastructure (PKI) technology – the Digital Signature tool brings together the documentation to be signed and the personal authentication information required to ensure approval and acceptance of the relevant commercial and legal terms.
Here's how it works
Digital Signature from TOC Biometrics provides highly validated Remote Approvals and can be integrated into existing systems quickly and easily.
Through a secure communication to our cloud API – using the latest Representational State Transfer (REST) technology – documents are digitally signed and a ‘cryptographic stamp’ certificate is issued. This smart identity validation and document approval solution can help to streamline complex workflows and business-critical customer journeys.
The TOC Biometrics SIGNER validates – triangulates – that the verification has been correctly carried out and that the established business rules have been met. If the biometric transaction was valid, the signer stamps the document digitally with a certificate and the data of the person – as well as the photo of the face used – are captured on the document.
The digital certificate that is 'stamped' on the document contains the property of TIMESTAMP, which allows administrators to know with certainty the exact moment – both time and date – of the signature. This property is immutable.
In addition, TOC Biometrics generates a log for each signature made, identifying the integrator, the signer and also the TIMESTAMP associated with the digital certificate, which allows a traceability of the signature. We make this data available to the integrator.
