Taking Signatures Seriously – Combining Biometric and Digital Signatures

  • Santiago Uriel Arias


The implementation of Biometrics is no longer seen as an isolated “security project” rather as a part of workflow optimization with a strong focus on the human factor. The project proofs a paradigm shift when dealing with handwritten signatures. While for many years the general idea was to replace the handwritten signature, “Firma Digitalizada” proofs that the handwritten signature can be embedded in a digital workflow in a trustworthy manner. After nine months of real production with millions of clients, CECA experience is one of the leading projects in the usage of these new technologies to provide real business value.
