In business, documents, decisions, and processes often need to be reliably authenticated. A (qualified) digital signature does precisely that, providing certainty that a specific individual created or edited documents or made a decision. An electronic signature is more secure than a conventional signature on paper: it can neither be copied from one document to another nor secretly modified or forged.
Used when only authorized persons should carry out certain operations. For example, enaio® enables acknowledgments of employees to be signed with software certificates. In process steps that do not have a strong legal component, simple password verification is sufficient. This ensures that the employee concerned personally performed each step in the system.
