How can I verify digital signatures online?
The supervisory authority for digital signatures and IT-Solution provide an online tool with which recipients of electronically signed documents (e.g. invoices) can check the digital signature.
The links to the test websites:
The advantage for the recipient: he no longer has to adapt his local software, such as Adobe Reader, for the signature verification. The online check also has advantages for the senders of signed invoices. You can inform customers about this test option and save yourself a separate signature hotline. We recommend that senders of signed documents include a link in their document to indicate this convenient and free verification option.
Develop your own online verifier
Providers of electronic signature services or electronic invoices can develop online verification services themselves. Appropriate help is provided as part of the MOA project (http://moa-idspss.egovlabs.gv.at/). This is an open source project of the Austrian government, which was originally intended for the citizen card. However, the source code can be used to check all signatures. However, GLOBALTRUST has not yet had any practical experience with this.
