ISO Develops Standards for Long-Term Authenticity of Electronic Signatures 

Feb. 28, 2013

The International Organization for Standards (ISO) last week revealed a new standard it said will ensure the long-term authenticity of electronic signatures used in e-commerce and for government e-documents. Geneva-based ISO said one problem with electronic signatures was, in many cases, companies legally were required to preserve electronically signed documents longer than the practical digital life of the document. According to the voluntary standards-setting body, ISO 14533 will help solve this problem by providing a framework for the development of systems and/or services that can guarantee the authenticity of electronic documents for a longer period of time than currently supported by available technology.

“[The new standards] provide a framework for guaranteeing interoperability and consumption of messages regardless of the target platform,” said Klaus-Dieter Naujok, chair of ISO technical committee ISO/TC 154, who developed the standard. “The new standards provide for long-term protection of these document formats that is not currently available.”

The new standards could help merchants that use electronic signature technology as part of the authentication process for e-commerce purchases.
