This chapter explains the administration use cases related to digital signatures. These use cases can only be executed by administrators or owners of the cloud organization.
To enable the digital signing of documents with custom certificates, administrators of the cloud organization can store the corresponding certificates in their organizations (“Advanced Settings” > “Configure Digital Signatures” action).
The administrator has to upload an X.509 certificate in PKCS #12 file format including the private key. Moreover, the certificate password to extract the private key must be defined.
The uploaded certificate is securely transferred to Fabasoft Secomo where it is stored securely by a hardware security module (HSM) that meets the requirements of FIPS 140-2 Level 4 physical security certification. In the Fabasoft Cloud, only the public information of the certificate is stored.
For each uploaded certificate, the administrator can specify which organization members are allowed to use this certificate in the signing dialog.
In addition to certificates, the administrator can also define stamps (“Advanced Settings” > “Configure Digital Signatures” action). For each uploaded stamp, the administrator can specify which organization members are allowed to use this stamp in the signing dialog.
