Signature-Verification Tool

Kategorie: eGovernment

The Signature-Verification Tool is a server-based solution for the verification of electronic signatures. The tool supports the verification of different document and signature formats.

To implement this functionality, a format-detection process is started first. According to the determined document format, an appropriate verification process is triggered. Additionally, the tool supports the definition of message filters for certain groups of document formats. This yields inclusion of additional information in the created verification report. This way, appropriate verification reports can be obtained also for documents such as PDF or XML that potentially contain different signature types and formats.

Mail Test

Kategorie: IT-Security

Standard email clients usually behave differently with encrypted or signed emails.

This service creates a quantity of different test email and sends them to one particular receiver. You can test if your email client shows discrepancy in handling the different types and forms of emails. The authentication of the user is necessary in order to prevent misuse by sending massive amounts of emails.

Circular-Resolution Database

Kategorie: eGovernment

Electronic documents in general and in particular resolution proposals usually need to be created, signed, and made accessible to a predefined group of people. This web application provides opportunities to facilitate these processing steps with the help of the Austrian Citizen Card.

Authenticated users of this web application can be dynamically assigned different roles and rights. This enables authorized users to upload PDF files or to create such files according to data previously entered by the user. Created or uploaded documents are subsequently automatically submitted to a predefined user group for electronic signature. Completely signed documents are finally made accessible for review and download to authorized users.

Additionally, the web application provides opportunities to maintain and backup created and signed documents. A configurable email-based notification system is also integrated into this web application to improve the overall efficiency of document creation and signing processes.

DKIM Proxy

Kategorie: IT-Security

DKIM Proxy is a reference implementation of the RFC 4871 (DomainKeys Identified Mail – DKIM) standard. This implementation can be deployed as a proxy in front of a SMTP or POP3/IMAP4 server.

The DKIM standard and the provided implementation facilitate the integration of appropriate means to reliably authenticate sender domains in e-mail transmissions. DKIM Proxy enables an SMTP server to sign sent e-mails according to the DKIM standard, and POP3 or IMAP4 servers to verify DKIM signatures of received e-mails.

Received e-mails are extended with an additional header field to indicate the result of the signature-verification process. This way, local e-mail clients can be configures to automatically classify incoming e-mails and to identify e-mails originating from invalid sender domains.

Word Signature

Kategorie: Archive

Applications such as MS-Word are undisputely mostly widespread and used for the tasks such as document editing. The same applies in the field of public administration. In this project the solution was developed with the aim to support the creation of electronic XML-notifications, in the environment which is familiar to the user.

This application therefore enables the creation of XML-Documents with the specified structure (schema) using MS-Word. This way, electronic notices can be directly exported from MS-Word as XML documents, signed and even electronically delivered. Prerequirement is that the original Word document (notice) builds upon specified template structure. In the practice Word documents in the targeted application field are mostly composed this way.

The application presented here provides the following functionalities:

  • Creation of XML-Documents, based on the predefined schema of given MS-Word document
  • Created XML-Document can be electronically signed (e.g. official signature)
  • If necessary, the resulting XML-Document can be additionally electronically delivered
