eSign: an innovative solution for secure electronic signing

eSign, an online electronic signature service, offers businesses a mechanism to replace manual paper-based signatures by integrating digital signatures within their applications. An authenticated user can electronically sign a form, a transaction or any other document anytime, anywhere, and from any device.

eSign was originally introduced to use Aadhaar-based KYC to provide a secure digital signing mechanism that could be easily scaled-up to a billion people. It has since been extended to include bank-based KYC. Thus, in addition to trusted Certifying Authorities (CAs), banks can launch an eSign service based on their own KYC-verified customer database. Alternatively, an eSign service can be setup based on a 3rd party bank’s KYC-verified database.

With Smart ID for eSign, Nexus provides a combination of PKI-based security, the convenience of biometrics, and non-repudiable eSignatures, all while empowering citizens to sign documents and transactions directly from their phones.

"Almost everyone wants to have as little as possible in stock, but Nexus is big enough to have what we need on hand and that means that we can have short lead times."
