What signing methods does Penneo offer?

You can choose between two options: eID and Touch signature.

If you opt for eID authentication, a window will open to let you choose your specific national digital ID. You can currently choose between NemID in Denmark, BankID in Norway, BankID in Sweden, itsme® in Belgium, or FTN in Finland.

If you want to sign with Touch, you can either draw your signature on the tablet or computer, upload a picture of your signature or create a text-based signature, which means typing your name in the appropriate field.

Do they have the same legal value?

Not exactly, as they don't provide the same level of security. Both options enable the creation of electronic signatures, but not all electronic signatures are equally valid and enforceable from a legal perspective.

Signer identity Verification
Two-factor Authentication
Content Integrity
eIDAS compliant Digital signature

A Touch signature is much safer than a conventional pen-made signature, as both the IP address of the signer and the date and time of the signature are registered and become an integral part of the final digital document. As a result, content integrity and non-alteration are still ensured.

However, it is not as secure as one made with an e-ID, nor it does meet the eIDAS Regulation requirements – therefore, we only recommend using it as a last resort.

In addition to preserving the content integrity of the digitally signed document, the signature via eID provides certainty on the signer’s identity. Hence, it enables the creation of a digital signature as defined by the eIDAS Regulation, making an advanced e-signature with the same legal standing as a hand-made signature – in the European Union and around the world.

For the creation of eIDAS-compliant digital signatures, Penneo only allows the use of Digital IDs issued by Trusted Service Providers (TSPs) or Certificate Authorities (CAs) that are included in the EU Trusted List.
