Opportunity to study standardisation of electronic signatures

A call aimed at awarding studies in response to the recommendations made by the European electronic signature standardisation initiative (EESSI) report is now open. These studies should help to clarify specific areas from a standardisation perspective, and identify how standardisation could further support the implementation of the Directive on electronic signatures in specific areas.

The studies will cover the following areas:

- Lot 1: identification and naming;
- Lot 2: certificate path validation;
- Lot 3: signature policy;
- Lot 4:scalable revocations and scalable suspensions;
- Lot 5: requirements for CSPs issuing attribute certificates;
- Lot 6: role of notaries;
- Lot 7: trusted archival services;
- Lot 8: use of biometrics in relation to electronic signatures.

The EESSI report is available on the Web, from:
