The eIDAS-compliant digital identity
xIDENTITY is a service offered by XiTrust together with A-Trust GmbH. As a certified trust service provider, the Austrian Trust Center A-Trust is authorized to issue personal certificates that feature the same legal validity such as a conventional identification document. The result is a digital identity, forming the prerequisite for a legally valid, secure digital transaction management. This includes the qualified electronic signature (QES) of all legally binding documents such as contracts, account openings or loans – by remote signature via mobile phone. Only with a qualified certificate, issued by an eIDAS-compliant trust center, a QES can be executed.
By the way, XiTrust is the second largest shareholder of A-Trust. Other shareholders are the Austrian Federal Economic Chamber, the Austrian Notary Trust Bank or the Austrian Bar Association. As a result, the partner companies XiTrust and A-Trust are able to offer all services related to the electronic signature from a single source, from the registration to the legally secure electronic signature. And this both on the national and the European stage: A-Trust has now issued 3 million identities in form of the “Handy-Signatur” in Austria alone. A-Trust is a technological leader in the European market as a trust center. By now, more than 800.000 people have already registered for xIDENTITY via the video identification procedure – carried out by XiTrust’s partner WebID Solutions.

xIDENTITY & MOXIS.
xIDENTITY is the perfect complement to make the business processes in your company digital and free of cross-media conversion. In order to sign documents in a legally valid manner by remote signature using the eSignature solution MOXIS, a digital identity is always required to ensure the authenticity of the person signing. The eIDAS Regulation allows you to obtain a digital identity EU-wide from any certified trust service provider. This is then also legally recognised in every other member state of the EU. In Austria, the digital identity in the form of the “Handy-Signatur” (with A-Trust as one such certified trust service provider) has already been a reality for several years. In practice, however, you can only obtain the “Handy-Signatur” if you are resident in Austria. With xIDENTITY, everything you need for your digital signature processes is now supplied from a single source – for the whole of Europe! Working with MOXIS is thus conceivably simple and convenient, since XiTrust also takes care of your digital identity, no matter where your company is located! This leaves you more time for the essentials – your company, your products, your customers.
