Post Liechtenstein selects QuoVadis certification technology
12 Nov 2008
Post Liechtenstein now offers accredited digital certificates known as LIEzertifikat which may be used to securely identify their users online and to create legally valid electronic signatures. Post Liechtenstein has chosen the Swiss company QuoVadis as its technology partner for the new LIEzertifikat (see www.liezertifikat.li).
"We are very proud that Post Liechtenstein has chosen QuoVadis technology to issue the LIEzertifikat for organisations and private persons", says Carl Rosenast, CEO of QuoVadis. The solution uses a managed service from QuoVadis that enables the customer to deliver certification services without operating their own internal Public Key Infrastructure (PKI).
"The managed infrastructure is an attractive alternative because it allows customers to focus on their service instead of investing all their planning and development on the underlying technology platform", continued Mr. Rosenast.
The LIEzertifikat PKI systems are hosted in the QuoVadis trust center. This high security facility is run by the St. Gallen-based company with highly trained and skilled personnel. The systems are held completely redundant and monitored 24/7 by a surveillance system. Furthermore, QuoVadis provides all applications necessary for the operation of a Registration Authority as well as tools for the automated issuance of digital certificates.
"With our Managed PKI solution, we offer the possibility for our customers to issue their own certificates, customised to their needs", says Rosenast. The QuoVadis technology and accreditations ensure that the certificates are accepted worldwide.
"Post Liechtenstein is a strategically important Partner for QuoVadis", Rosenast emphasizes. Lichtenstein is an important financial jurisdiction and with the LIEzertifikat, they have their own certificate at their disposal which enables companies to have fully electronic and legally compliant communication.
With the LIEzertifikat, contracts, offers and other documents can be signed electronically. This assures that electronic documents are real and that the sender is the person that he claims to be. The application possibilities for digital certificates are growing daily and ensure legal compliance to the traditional ink signature.
