SigningHub is not affected by the HeartBleed OpenSSL vulnerability!

Posted by Liaquat Khan on 09-Apr-2014 17:02:00

OpenSSL is one of the most commonly used toolkits to implement PKI services. It is free/open source, regularly updated and comes bundled with Linux. You can also install its binaries on Windows. Although issues in the SSL protocol have been identified in the past, this time most OpenSSL implementations have a critical vulnerability.
Researchers in Codenomicon and Google found the vulnerability inside the OpenSSL implementation code, see this link for more details: CVE-2014-0160. Once exploited, a threat agent can access sensitive information which includes passwords and secure key information. OpenSSL has recently provided a patch to address this vulnerability.

Real-World Use Case: Group/Departmental Level Signing

Posted by Liaquat Khan on 26-Jul-2013 14:42:00

In the real-world often it doesn't matter who signs a document but rather do they have the sufficient authority to do this. That is the "identity" of the signer is not as important as the "authorisation". E.g. a Purchase Order typically requires an authorised member from the Procurement department to sign-off on it.

Delegated e-Signing

Posted by Liaquat Khan on 24-Sep-2012 16:17:00

Often in the real world people are unable to sign documents because they are away on holiday or some other important business. In situations like this there is normally a possibility for some other suitably authorised person to sign on behalf of the original signer. Within SigningHub we have built support for delegated or so called PP signatures. Set-up is simple, just identify the person who can sign on your behalf and the date range when this is allowed (e.g. whilst you are on leave).

3rd party websites can now leverage the full power of SigningHub

Posted by Liaquat Khan on 27-Aug-2012 12:50:00

For a while now we have provided a comprehensive web services interface (API) for SigningHub. This allowed business applications to initiate document signing workflows and create/delete user accounts. However an issue for many website applications is that they don't want users to register and login separately with the signature service provider. All the interactions should be through their own website so that there is consistent branding and user experience. To help in this usage scenario we have now added website integration using our REST based interface:
