ADSS Server SAM APPLIANCE

Remote Qualified Signature Creation Device (QSCD)

High-Trust Remote Signing

There are many benefits to remote (cloud) signing, in particular there is no need to deploy hardware-based smartcards or tokens to users. This makes remote signing more cost-effective and also much easier to use from any location on any device. However for high-trust business applications, it’s essential that the server-side signing is performed in a secure way such that user signing keys remain under the sole control of their owner. Ascertia ADSS Server SAM Appliance is designed to provide the highest levels of assurance for remote signing including up to eIDAS Qualified Electronic Signature levels.

Key Points

ADSS Server SAM Appliance is the first in the World to Pass the Common Criteria EN 419 241-2 Evaluation Process
The SAM Appliance provides a tamper-protected hardware environment for its secure processing which is designed to meet FIPS 140-2 Level 3
Users authenticate to the SAM Appliance using the Go>Sign Mobile app. A secure 2-factor authentication and authorisation protocol referred to as the “Signature Activation Protocol (SAP)” ensures only the owner can authorise the use of their remote signing key
The SAM Appliance integrates out of the box with Ascertia SigningHub and ADSS Signing Server products. It can also be easily integrated with third party business applications using our ADSS Client SDKs.
The Ascertia Go>Sign Mobile app is also available as an SDK for iOS and Android to allow the same functionality to be embedded into your own apps.
The SAM Appliance comes with an optional embedded HSM which is also independently Common Criteria EAL4+ certified against eIDAS Protection Profile standard EN 419 221-5. External HSM options also exist.
ADSS Server SAM is also available in software mode for remote advanced signatures (as opposed to qualified signatures)
