Qualified Certificate for Electronic Seal

A Qualified Certificate for Electronic Seal is based on Act No. 297/2016 Coll., a Recognized Electronic Seal, which may be

  • Advanced electronic seal based on a qualified electronic seal certificate or
  • Qualified electronic seal, ie a Advanced electronic seal, which is created using a qualified electronic seal creation facility and which is based on a qualified electronic seal certificate.

I.CA now offers the Starcos 3.7 smart card, which is certified as a qualified seal creation device.

The above law regulates the use of both types of electronic seals. In short, the public signatory, if legally acting, uses a qualified electronic seal. The person who legally opts for the public signatory may use both types of seals. Detailed provisions of Sections 8 and 9 of that Act.

According to eIDAS, it is true that

  • For a qualified electronic seal, the presumption of data integrity and originality of the data with which the qualified electronic seal is associated is presumed,
  • a qualified electronic seal based on a qualified certificate issued in one Member State is recognized as a qualified electronic seal in all other Member States.

Electronic seals can only be created by eIDAs by legal persons who are originators of the documents to which the seal is attached.

In case the searcher is not interested in managing the above solution, he can use the I.CA Remote Seal service - electronic sealing remotely. More information here .
