What is a Qualified Electronic Signature Creation Device (QSCD)?

A QSCD is a Secure Signature Generation Device that is certified and approved for being used to generate Qualified Electronic Signatures (QES).

It uses technical and procedural means to ensure:
• Signing keys are kept secret
• Signing keys are created using established cryptographic techniques
• Signing keys can only be used by the right owner
• Compliance to the stringent standards for QES.

Cryptomathic Signer is, in part, a remote QSCD.
