Electronic Seal of electronic documents, digital assets and data

E-Seal is an electronic signature that enables organisations to secure any kind of digital asset. Whether it is data, transactions, documents, or even servers, the electronic seal guarantees authenticity, origin and integrity.

E-Seal is the modern, richer equivalent of a company rubber stamp. It provides proof that the data or system has not been tampered with.

It can be used to quickly sign a large quantity of documents on behalf of your company (such as invoices or statements), and also to give additional assurance when approving individual reports (e.g. medical analysis).

What is digital seal?

An electronic seal is a data in electronic form, which is attached to or logically associated with other data in electronic form to ensure the latter’s origin and integrity, where the creator of a seal is a legal person (unlike the electronic signature that is issued by a natural person).

In this purpose, electronic seals might serve as evidence that an electronic document was issued by a legal person, ensuring certainty of the document’s origin and integrity. Nevertheless, across the European Union, when a transaction requires a qualified electronic seal from a legal person, a qualified electronic signature from the authorised representative of the legal person is equally acceptable.

When sealing a document, a pair of keys might be needed (i.e. when the seal relies on the use of public-key infrastructure), namely a ‘public key’ and a ‘private key’. The public key can be publicly shared while the private key shall be securely stored. Especially, the private key is used by the creator of the seal to seal a document while the public key is used by anyone verifying that it is actually the private key of the creator of the seal that has been used to seal the document.

A certificate for electronic seals, issued by a Certificate Authority (CA), is an electronic attestation that links electronic seal validation data to a legal person and confirms the name of that person. This way, the certificate, usually linked to the sealed document, can be used to verify the identity of the creator of the seal and whether the document has been sealed using the corresponding private key.

Like an electronic signature, an electronic seal shall not be denied legal effect and admissibility as evidence in legal proceedings solely on the grounds that it is in an electronic form or that it does not meet the requirements for qualified electronic seals.

While different levels of electronic seals may be appropriate in different contexts, only qualified electronic seals explicitly enjoy the presumption of integrity of the data and of correctness of the origin of that data to which the qualified electronic seal is linked, all over Egypt, The Middle East and Africa.

Moreover, as a general rule, if a certain level of electronic seal (e.g. advanced seal) is required, a higher level will probably be accepted (e.g. advanced signature with a qualified seal, qualified electronic seal).

Nevertheless, when a transaction requires a qualified electronic seal from a legal person, a qualified electronic signature from the authorised representative of the legal person is equally acceptable.,

How does a Digital Seal work?

A Digital Seal serves as proof that an electronic document has been signed by a legal person.

Technically, the seal corresponds to a signature; legally, it stands for the integrity as well as the correctness of the dataʼs proof of origin.

The Digital seal is a kind of electronic company stamp. Digital Seals can also be generated by IT systems and are therefore an efficient tool to support secure automated processes.

Possible application scenarios include email, electronic receipt stamps, seals on certificates and authentications or seals for mass invoicing.

A Digital Seal - like the Digital Signature comes in the form of an advanced or qualified Digital Seal.

The qualified Digital Seal is legally binding and recognized throughout Egypt, The Middle East and Africa.
