Questions and answers about e-signatures

What types of documents can I sign?

You can sign PDF or XML documents no larger than 5MB.

For how long is a signature valid?

Generally, signatures in EduSign are validated for 1 year, but by downloading a validation certificate for your signed document, the signatures can be validated for about 50 years. Read more about long-term validation below.

What applies when printing my digitally signed document?

The document is and remains valid even though it is printed. However, it is more difficult to prove that the signature is genuine when the document has been printed. Therefore, preferably store digitally signed documents digitally.

Can I identify myself with something other than a KI ID, such as mobile BankID?

No. At present, only a valid KI ID serves as an identification method.
