Simplicity & Freedom:
• Users can draw their e-signatures using a stylus, mouse or a finger
• Users can sign with one of these signature types:
- An e-signature secured with the user’s own unique long-term digital signature
- An e-signature secured with a witness digital signature (useful when signer doesn’t have a PKI of their own)
• When using unique digital signature keys for each user, the keys can be held:
- Securely on the SigningHub server in software, or for greater trust, within a variety of FIPS 140-2 and CC EAL4+ HSM hardware products, including Microsoft Azure Key Vault
- Securely within a local smartcard or USB token typically for High-Trust or Qualified Certificates (or less securely in the Windows software key store);
- Securely within a mobile device.
