Connective SignID software
As of eSignatures 6.0, Connective SignID software replaces the Connective browser package. SignID (for Windows and macOS) must be installed to use any signing method within eSignatures that requires additional hardware.
Currently, the signing methods within eSignatures that require additional hardware are:
- eID and Manual+eID: both require an eID card reader
- BeLawyer: requires a transparent card reader
- Biometric: requires a biometric signing pad
Note: if you're using an iOS or Android device and want to use a signing method that requires additional hardware, you need a mobile app. Contact your administrator to check if an app is available for your company. The Connective demo app in the App store and Google Play can only be used with the standard demo environment of eSignatures.
How does SignID work?
SignID is used to communicate between eSignatures and the external hardware. Upon signing, the software checks if the software is installed. If it's not installed, the installation is automatically triggered.
Advantages of SignID
- No longer browser-dependent
- New smart cards can be added as signing method much more easily
Note that SignID software and the Connective browser package can be run on the operating system. It’s not necessary to uninstall the Connective browser package before using SignID.
