Electronic Invoice Signing
Streamline how you receive and process digitally signed documents and electronic invoices within a secure hardware-based environment through Futurex technology.
A More Secure Method for Authorizing Digital Signatures
Electronic invoices are used to digitally receive payment in an efficient process that reduces the environmental impact of paper usage and fights fraud. Digital signatures, a way to remotely authenticate the identity of a user, are used to securely verify the documents through private and public keys backed by HSMs.
Futurex HSMs are used globally for electronic invoice signing, reducing fraud by ensuring the authenticity and integrity of messages and maintaining compliance with government and regulatory requirements. By enabling electronic invoicing, governments and organizations can expect a significant reduction in cost while increasing efficiency in payment processing.
The Technology of Electronic Invoice Signing
Electronic invoicing relies on a Public Key Infrastructure to create a network of mutually authenticated devices. The applying organization begins by sending a certificate signing request to the payee organization. This certificate signing request is generated by the applying organization’s hardware security module and is composed of identifying attributes and its public key.
The payee will sign the certificate signing request with its private key and generate a certificate, which is sent along with the parent certificate to the applying organization. This ensures that the organizations are mutually authenticated entities and that their continued communication is trusted.
Once mutual authentication has occurred, the applying organization uses their private key to digitally sign the message and the payee’s public key to encrypt it. The message is then sent to the payee, where the message is decrypted using the payee’s private key. The signature is then verified using the applying organization’s public key. Finally, the applying organization is sent a validating message.
Futurex’s Compliant and Complete Solution
Futurex HSMs offer unparalleled usability, scalability, and security for applications requiring digital signatures, from standard object validation using the Excrypt SSP9000 to enterprise-level ventures using the Excrypt SSP9000 Enterprise or KMES Series. The HSM is utilized to generate and manage the certificate trees containing the public/private key pairs for document validation. The HSM can also encrypt and decrypt the data, all from one centralized location with a user-friendly GUI. A FIPS 140-2 Level 3 and PCI HSM-validated hardware security module, all private keys and sensitive data are housed within a Secure Cryptographic Device (SCD).
Futurex’s wide-ranging cryptographic functionality includes RSA, Point-to-Point Encryption (P2PE), PKCS #11, AES, and more, allowing your business to have the versatility and flexibility in document signing that accommodates your organization’s needs.
