Since the eIDAS Regulation came into force in July 2016, (perhaps the main rule on the creation of the European Digital Single Market among the 28 member States) LOGALTY has been very committed to this new environment and has unleashed its full potential for technology and innovation so that its Trust Services and certified electronic Identity obtained the evaluation of compliance with the eIDAS Regulation.
For this purpose Logalty began in 2014 the necessary investments to design, implement, and deploy a public key infrastructure (“PKI”) for the issuance of its own certificates and electronic time stamps and its strategy on Trust Services and Electronic Identityon the basis of eIDAS Regulation. Following this policy, it obtained the UNE-ISO / IEC 27001 certification and incorporated the COBIT5 framework as an IT governance system in the company.
All this, together with the work done for years in managing information security processes, procedures, and controls, leading it towards the new regulation, has allowed LOGALTY to achieve this highly relevant milestone in this first quarter of 2018: the evaluation in accordance with the eIDAS Regulation.
What Trust Services have obtained the compliance evaluation with the eIDAS Regulation?
In the construction of the new European Digital Single Market, and within the framework of the regulator’s instructions, trust service providers are currently evaluating four Building Blocks in accordance with the eIDAS Regulation:
- ELectronic Signature “eSignature”, that certifies natural persons’ actions
- Electronic Seal “eSeal”, that certifies legal persons’ actions
- Time Stamp “T&S”, that certifies the exact time on which the action occurs.
- “Web Authentication”, that authenticates the website identity
The objective is not to stay here, but to continue to make progress in conformity assessment. Logalty is currently finalizing its conformity assessment process of a new trusted service, the fifth Building Block:
In this way, LOGALTY is helping, from Spain the creation of the European Digital Single Market, trying to reduce the fragmentation and allowing progress in the interoperability of the business processes of that sector, with the maximum legal and technological security possible.
