Increase of Electronic Signature Security

Increase of Electronic Signature Security

Russian government supported a bill aimed at enhancing the security of electronic signature (E-signature). The idea of the bill is to increase requirements to certification centers releasing E-signatures. In particular, a significant increase of the capital, insurance liability, as well as reduction of the accreditation term. 

Moreover, when signing documents two signatures will be required: of the legal entity (or individual entrepreneur) and an individual’s personal signature. Increasing the security of E-signatures is necessary, because of a large number of law violations mainly related to tax filling issues, one-day firms registration and granting signature based on forged documents.
