A draft for standardising electronic business
transactions compiled by the European
Telecommunications Standards Institute's (ETSI) is
now available on the Web.
The draft, under the European Electronic Signature
Standardisation Initiative (EESSI), follows the
European Commission's proposal for a directive to
provide a Community framework for electronic
signatures. The focus of research is to determine
the legal validity of electronic signatures.
The aim of the first set of standards is to meet
the minimum requirements required for the
interoperability of electronic signatures used in
secure business transactions, thereby encouraging
the development of secure e-commerce.
The current proposal covers a range of
standardisation activities, including naming
conventions and restraints, the format of
electronic signature tokens and their
sub-components, and the selection of protocols to
interoperate with public repositories.
ETSI would like to encourage comments on the
draft, in preparation for a final draft being
scheduled for publication in September 1999.
