Upon obtaining his PhD, Dr. Wild was responsible for the organization and management of C/S software development at an IT service provider in the banking sector.

Session Description: Founded in 2016 the Cloud Signature Consortium is focussing on the introduction an open specification of interface components enabling trust service providers to deliver the whole spectrum of signing services mentioned in eIDAS to companies and end users including remote signature. The members of the CSC are leading European software companies for electronic signature, trust service providers and Adobe. Being able to add a qualified signature to a PDF document everywhere on every device without using specific hardware like smartcard or card reader forms the motivation of CSC. A major concern is the fully compliance to the eIDAS regulation and thus the referenced ETSI and CEN standards. The presentation gives an overview about the actual status of standardisation i nETSI and CEN as well as the first implementations of the CSC specification in the market. Finally some use cases for qualified remote signing will be described.
