A digital Isabel-certificate will be granted to an Isabel-user once this user fills in certain formalities: (s)he has to go throught the certification procedure to receive a digital certificate containing personal data and a personal password, linked to his/her Isabel SmartCard. Only then will the digital signature have the same juridical value as a handwritten signature. The Isabel digital signature guarantees the authenticity of the person using it, but also the integrity of the exchanged messages (the guarantee that nothing was edited during sending).
Digital signing is very simple and user-friendly. Just place your Isabel SmartCard in the Isabel card reader, enter your personal password and done!
You can sign all your transactions at once in Isabel 6, needing only one SmartCard for all applications. The digital Isabel 6 signature can also be used for online government services.
