Today hardly one can imagine completing some documents on papers. Everything we do we do it electronically. Well… may be sometimes we print it out. But I guess, soon there will not be need for printers. New Todos device enables secure digital signatures and document exchange. The Todos Connectable 417 (C417), Todos has taken a big step towards a secure paperless society.Day by day our demands increase and require more comfort, want to go beyond online shopping, want the same level of convenience for things like filing tax returns and signing contracts, businesses, banks and governments are already moving in this direction.
But…There is no statement without BUT. But we miss: TRUST.
So what are the risks: Viruses and spyware. As it is mentioned at SOURCEWIRE, it puts on-screen digital signatures at risk. They could be stolen or repudiated. In addition, there are conflicting standards for secure digital documents and signatures which reduces interoperability.
But we have a solution. The Todos C417 and new technology called XML-Sign-What-You-See (XML-SWYS) solves these problems. It replicates the experience of signing a paper document and the users can see key details on the Todos C417’s large LCD screen before they sign.
As the device is separate from the PC and the signature requires a smart card and a pin number for extra security, the system protects the user against online fraud. The PIN number is never exposed to the computer.As for the XML, it simplifies document exchange with the ability to sign any document securely. The result is a flexible format that is also highly trustworthy.“The world is moving towards digital signatures and secure paperless transactions,” says Peter Gullberg, VP Product Strategy at Todos, “and Todos is leading the way. Other security vendors are talking about this kind of technology but we’re the only one that has actually deployed it to over one million eBanking customers.”
