When relying on signatures, seals, or timestamps, it is important that they be valid. You want to ensure that your signature is applied correctly and as intended. When you receive a document with one or more signatures or seals, you want to ensure that these are valid before you sign, process, or archive these documents.
With Comfact Validation, signatures, seals, and timestamps are validated in order to confirm that they are correct and advanced or qualified.
If a signature, seal, or timestamp is incorrect (not valid) or it is not advanced or qualified, legal problems can arise. Therefore, signatures, seals, and timestamps should be validated before acceptance according to a set baseline. It is also possible to include specific policy requirements stating the minimum compliance.
