SigningHub currently enables users to create a combined e-signature with a digital signature. The e-signature part is the hand-signature image displayed on the document, whilst the advanced PKI digital signature is the part that is embedded into the PDF document and is verifiable upon clicking the signature appearance.
We are pleased to announce that by working with our South African partner LawTrust we can now bring AeSign credentials to the SigningHub. AeSign (Accredited Advanced Electronic Signatures) are the only signatures in South Africa which are deemed by law to have been valid and applied correctly by the signatory and are therefore trusted to be equivalent to handwritten signatures. So for the first time, you can now use your digital certificate from the LawTrust AeSign CA directly in SigningHub. Also any documents signed using such credentials can be verified through SigningHub. We will continue to ensure our SigningHub service has the widest interoperability with high-trust digital ID providers globally, so look out for further developments in this area.
