SwissSign Group Ltd. has two cornerstones: identity services under the brand SwissID and certificate services. SwissID is the digital identity of Switzerland which enables simple and secure access to the online world. Thanks to electronic certificates, data can be exchanged in encrypted form and therefore protected against unauthorised access. As a Swiss trust service provider (TSP), SwissSign Group Ltd. accompanies people and companies into a successful digital future, and protects data according to the highest security standards while keeping it in Switzerland. Further information is available on www.swisssign.com and www.swissid.ch.

Certifications and memberships As a trusted service provider (TSP), SwissSign fulfils the requirements of the Swiss Certification Law (ZertES), the EU regulation standards (eIDAS), FINMA outsourcing guidelines, CA Browser Forum and ISO 27001. These recognitions entitle SwissSign to issue qualified certificates and products for qualified electronic signatures in Switzerland and in the European Union (EU) and worldwide trustworthy certificates.

For example, SwissSign issues the SuisseID. Based on its qualified certificate a qualified electronic signature can achieve the same status as a hand-written signature in accordance with the Swiss Code of Obligations. For electronic invoicing and archiving of business records in accordance with Swiss law (Swiss Business Records Ordinance GeBüV and ordinance on electronic data and information ElDI-V) SwissSign offers regulated organization seals and qualified time stamps. Both are shown as trustworthy signatures in the Adobe PDF reader. The details are governed in the applicable Swiss legislation and implementation provisions.

SwissSign is also a member of the CA/Browser Forum, the TeleTrusT European Bridge CA and the Adobe Approved Trust List and has been awarded the "swiss made software" label.
