The panel discussion on “The Use of Digital Signature in e-Government" organized by REALSEC in Peru a success
The event was aimed at Peruvian Government officials, advisors and experts linked to the information security sector.
REALSEC and their partner in Peru, FirmaDigital.CC, organized a new panel discussion titled, «The Use of Digital Signature in e-Government”, where the many advantages that digital signature provides for consolidation of a solid e-Government were presented and how their company offers the most competitive solutions to achieve this goal.
REALSEC is an international company that develops encryption and digital signature systems for the following sectors: Banking and Payment Systems, Government and Defense, and Multi-sector.
The CEO of FirmaDigital.CC, Robert Cava, tells us, «REALSEC is a developer of cryptographic systems based on Hardware Security Module (HSM) and is a pioneer in cryptographic systems for Banking, payment methods, digital signature, and data encryption».
Carlos de Vicente Maroto, REALSEC’s Business Development Manager, concludes that «the use of the digital signature is possibly the most appropriate track for the establishment of e-Government».
De Vicente commented that the National Identification and Civil Status Registry (Reniec), the National Superintendence of Tributary Administration (Sunat), and the National Institute for the Defense of Competition and Intellectual Property (INDECOPI) have been the first public entities in Peru to take steps toward the development of e-Government.
«Peru has made a huge effort to invest in implementing the electronic ID card, which provides a form of identification for Peruvian citizens as well as enables them to perform public administration procedures remotely. This process is part of the front office”, says De Vicente.
The REALSEC executive also pointed out that digital certificates are processed within the organizations (back-office) which are subsequently followed by certain steps. He emphasizes that, «Until officials have acquired a culture of digital archives and digital signatures, and have automated internal processes, discarding the use of paper documents; the advances created will serve no purpose.»
During the event, aimed at Peruvian Government officials, advisors and specialists linked to the information security sector, Carlos de Vicente expressed that «information technology must serve to improve, simplify and streamline what was already happening in the absence of computers in the field».
Regarding the advantages of e-Government versus traditional Government procedures, the expert said that the first process provides extended service hours, facilitates expedition, eliminates data reentry, provides a physical approach, reduces files and searches, and complies with strict «Rules of Administrative Procedures” (Texto Unico de Procedimientos Administrativos – TUPA)«.
He warned that once a digital signature is received from the anonymity of the Internet, the process of verifying the signature and the document integrity, as well as certificate status validation at the time of signature begins.
Lastly, a video about REALSEC CryptoSign Server, a cryptographic Server network with a capacity to store and manage, with ease and absolute security, corporate electronic certificates with their private keys, was presented at the event. This sets it up as the ideal system to perform digital signature, e-mail protection and web authentication:
