My hospital emailed me a medical records release form as a PDF. They told me to print it, fill it, sign it, scan it and return it to the medical records department, in that order. In 2018? To get the form via email (i.e., electronically), yet be asked to print it? Did the last 20 years just… not mean anything! So I thought I’d be clever. I’d fill it first, THEN print it. Or better yet, never print it, but sign it anyhow, and return it along with a note making the case for improving their workflow. The story continues…

ETSI-compliant Signing of PDF

Bernd-WildDr. Bernd Wild, Chairman of intarsys AG, will be hosting a presentation titled “ETSI-compliant Signing of PDF” at the PDF Days Europe 2018.

Presenter: Dr. Bernd Wild is originally a graduate physicist. After completing his studies, he worked for several years at a computer science research center in the field of artificial intelligence and its possible applications in industrial processes. 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. Together with some partners, he founded intarsys consulting GmbH in Karlsruhe in 1996. Dr. Wild now concentrates on consulting and providing assistance for complex system integration projects.

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.
