Barcelona, June 2, 2022. Víntegris, Spanish software manufacturer and Qualified Trust Service Provider (PCSC), according to the European regulation for the recognition of electronic identities eIDAS, has been awarded the public tender of the Congress of Deputies for the election of a solution that provides legal value evidence and maximum security to the electronic signatures of the deputies in activities as relevant as voting on parliamentary initiatives and economic files, signing minutes, etc., that your honorable members carry out every day and that have a direct impact on the functioning of our country.
The deputies will use the Víntegris electronic signature technology in service mode, which includes the issuance of electronic certificates, centralized qualified electronic signature in the cloud and the management of signature flows and qualified time stamping.
“The incorporation of a Certification Authority such as the one that we provide from Víntegris to the signature process of Congress, represents an important step in the security and reliability of the numerous procedures carried out by the deputies, since it provides the maximum legal probative value to their signatures, whether they are carried out in person from the Congress or remotely”, explains Javier Bustillo, general director of Víntegris.
The Víntegris solution also incorporates qualified time stamping, providing a record of the exact time of the signature and validation in the event of discrepancies, avoiding doubts about the validity and integrity of both the signature and the signed data.
It is also easy to carry out these procedures from any device (laptop, tablet, mobile, …) with the highest level of security, access being protected by strong multi-factor authentication.
“Our electronic signature technology clears up any doubt about the authenticity of a deputy’s signature, since it provides each of them with a qualified electronic signature, which links the identity of the signer to his signature, through a personal certificate and skilled. This ensures that it is not only valid in the EU country in which it was issued, but that it is also recognized as valid and legally binding in any other member state”, continues Bustillo.
