The qualified electronic signature can be used in electronic legal transactions wherever conventional handwritten signatures are used. Not to be confused is the signature function with an authentication, as it is possible with the eID function of the new identity card. Authentication replaces the reconciliation of a person with a document of identification, ie the well-known presentation of the card. It thus provides immediate information about the identity of a person. The signature, on the other hand, proves that the document provided with the signature comes from the undersigned, thus providing information about the author of a declaration of intent. The signature makes the declaration associated with it permanently assignable and verifiable. In addition to the fields of application for which the written form is prescribed by law, the qualified electronic signature can be used in all areas in which the user attaches importance to the fact that he can resort, if necessary, to secure evidence for the submission of a declaration of intent.
