General Information:  

A call aimed at awarding studies in response to the recommendations 
made by the European electronic signature standardisation initiative 
(EESSI) report is now open. These studies should help to clarify 
specific areas from a standardisation perspective, and identify how

                    - Lot 2: certificate path validation; 
                    - Lot 3: signature policy; 
                    - Lot 4: scalable revocations and scalable
                             suspensions; 
                    - Lot 5: requirements for CSPs issuing attribute 
                             certificates; 
                    - Lot 6: role of notaries; 
                    - Lot 7: trusted archival services; 
                    - Lot 8: use of biometrics in relation to
                             electronic signatures.
