Electronic Signature

The National Operator for Hungary, the John von Neumann Computer Institute, has launched an ECDL Foundation Endorsed Programme called, 'Electronic Authenticity, Electronic Signature Module'.

The Objective of the Module

The basic aim of this ECDL Electronic Authenticity, Electronic Signature Module is to verify the knowledge and proficiency gained in electronic authenticity. For this proficiency one has to:

  • Acquire the concept, idea and possible forms of realisation of electronic authenticity through theoretical and practical elements
  • Be able to recognise elements of electronic authenticity in internet communication, on websites, in e-mails, and in documents
  • Be able to create legal electronic signatures with different applications

Successful examinees will be able to:

  • Distinguish the difference between authentic and counterfeit electronic information
  • Know the legal presumptions connected to different types of electronic signature
  • Recognise the signature forms that correspond to the relevant law
  • Reject signature forms that do not meet the official requirements

Successful examinees will also be able to use the European rules of authentic electronic communication in the private, public and also in the business sphere, thus improving the quality of electronic processes that support the quality of our working lives.

The Target Audience for the Module

The module is primarily for employees who are, or will be working with computers and electronic documents. However, the module is also recommended for entrepreneurs who plan to: sign contracts with their European partners electronically, communicate with their counsels electronically, or issue and book e-invoices more efficiently than they currently do. The module is also extremely useful for those micro-, small-, and medium enterprises which currently use e-invoices but are curious to find a legal method to store e-documents until the date determined by the law. Home users can also benefit from this module by acquiring the rules, techniques and methods of communicating with the state and authorities electronically.

The module contains the following sections:

  • Information and Information Society
  • Electronic Signature in the European Information Society
  • Public Key Infrastructure (PKI)
  • Digital Certificates
  • Creating and Classifying Electronic Signatures
  • E-Governmental Administration, Office Routine Electronically
