Application of the biometric signature
Like other electronic signatures, biometric signatures make it possible to sign documents without the need for paper. Any type of business or personal transaction can be done with this technology.
Through digitizing tablets (or other devices prepared for the biometric signature) the parties can conclude agreements, complete contracts, and all this with a high level of reliability similar to the handwritten signature on paper, with the same legal validity. This is because the document is saved not only with the signature of the signatory, but also with the biometric data of the same, which will be attached to the document. The entire set of evidence will be encrypted and properly stored to ensure its authenticity and security.
The biometric signature is a technology that allows capturing the image of the handwritten signature through digital tablets with the biometric data of the signatory – speed, writing acceleration, pressure, inflections, changes of direction and pencil movements. These characteristics identify the signatory in a unique way as these are features that are inherent to the person and allow each individual to authenticate uniquely.
Benefits of biometric signature
By being able to do most of the processes without paper, companies will have significant savings in costs, greater security and transparency.
In addition, biometric signature technology has the following advantages:
- Fraud prevention: which is possible following the identification of the signatory at the time of signature.
- Signature guarantee: the signature process does not allow the completion of a signature process until all requested signatures have been captured.
- Document and signature audit: the technology facilitates the verification of the authenticity of the documents and their respective signatures.
- Improved processes: digital processes improve all types of personal or professional management, increasing their efficiency and transparency.
What is e-signature?
An electronic signature, or e-signature, is a legal way to get consent or approval on electronic documents or forms. … Examples include contracts, application forms, new hire onboarding forms, nondisclosure agreements, vendor onboarding documents and RFPs, change authorizations, and government benefits enrollment forms.
What is the difference between e-signature and digital signature?
A digital signature is a cryptographic technology that allows the recipient of a digitally signed message to identify the entity that created the message (in order to authenticate the origin and not to be repudiated), and to confirm that the message has not been altered since it was signed by the sender of the document to the signature (i.e., to guarantee its integrity).
The electronic signature is a more extended concept than the electronic signature, since it refers to a series of cryptographic methods, while the concept of “electronic signature” is fundamentally legal.
According to the legislation, the electronic signature is the set of data relating to a person recorded in electronic form, and that together with others or associated with them, can be used as a means of identification of the signatory.
What is biometric digital signature?
The biometric signature is a technology that allows capturing the image of the handwritten signature through digital tablets with the biometric data of the signatory – speed, writing acceleration, pressure, inflections, direction changes and pencil movement.
