Conference on eIDAS documents

A Software602 conference for central administration, titled “eIDAS documents – threat or opportunity?” took place on Wednesday, October 5, 2016, on the historical premises of the Kaiserstein palace.

The topic of the conference had not been chosen on random – the eIDAS regulation has been, especially since this year's July 1st, a subject of interest for all administration. As of June 1st, equality between a paper form of a document and an electronic one has been established. This means that an electronic signature or document must not be refused legal effect and must not be refused as evidence in court or administrative proceedings for the sole reason of being in electronic form or that the electronic signature does not comply with requirements on its qualified form.

Software602's ing. Richard Kaucký and ing. Pavel Nemrava spoke about everything that this Regulation brings into practice not only for public administration. ICT UNIE was represented by its president, Mgr. Zdeněk Zajíček, who also introduced the 202020 initiative. JUDr. Dalibor Kovář from the law firm Havel, Holásek & Partners also made an appearance at the conference with a presentation on the legislative impacts on eIDAS documents. Ing. Pavel Plachý from the Czech Post introduced the topic from the point of view of a certification authority, Post Signum. 

A lively discussion between the presenter and the several tens of guests took place in the course of the conference and the individual talks. The main issues discussed by the participants were:

  • The eIDAS regulation is viewed as an issue belonging to ICT departments and that is wrong. It is an ORGANIZATIONAL issue based on legislation change and it should be addressed by the responsible departments of ÚSÚ (central administration offices)
  • what eIDAS means for public administration – how to provide long-term legibility and validability of documents, how to correctly validate digital documents, how to correctly sign and seal documents so that they comply with legislative requirements
  • how to ensure compliance with these requirements for all information systems in ÚSÚ's responsibility. 

These discussed articles and more can be addressed by Software602's solution, which complies with all the requirements of the eIDAS regulation for digital documents. In addition to that, Software602 is the only Czech member of ETSI who is active in the area of electronic signatures and who also successfully took part in all plug tests for PAdES, XAdES and CAdES signature formats, ASiC and e-Signature Validation.
