When sending a transaction, it is verified on the basis of e-mail address that the correct person signs the document. It is possible to build in extra security. You can do this by applying a second factor authentication. The signer must perform an action before he/she can reach the documents.
During SMS authentication, a code is sent to the recipient's mobile number. The recipient will have to enter this code in order to sign. The SMS functionality is only available when an SMS bundle has been purchased. Entering the mobile phone number is a manual action. It is not stored in the address book. This is to ensure validity.
Question and answer
Q&A allows you to submit questions to the signatory; in this case those are 'shared secrets'. You can formulate questions based on information you already have about your customer, such as the last four digits of his/her Social Security number or an ID number. If the signer provides the correct answer, it will be verified as the correct recipient of the transaction. This Q&A function is ideal when sending an insurance claim or an electronic transfer, for example.
Single Sign On
When you enable SSO signing, signers can only sign when they are logged in with the correct credentials. SSO ensures that an end user can log in once, after which access is automatically given to multiple applications in the network. You can log in and sign in ValidSign with SSO. SSO is an additional module. Contact us using the details below for the possibilities.
You can determine per transaction whether you want to use this second factor authentication. You can specify different settings for a signer. For example, you can have a signer with SMS and another signer sign with SSO in the same transaction.
