Software publisher and confidence operator
Lex Persona was created in 2005, many years after infrastructure public key management first appeared. The company was founded based on the realisation that the market for dematerialisation could not develop successfully without taking into account two factors:
1. The need to simplify the electronic signing of documents for the user.
Using a handwritten signature is easy, so the software developed should be user-friendly with strong emphasis on the following aspects:
- Technical: managing digital identities on various cryptographic devices
- Legal: supporting qualified certificates, support for formats developed evidence
- Functional: supporting signature policies or interoperability needs evidence
2. The need to easily integrate electronic signing into business applications.
In the same way that we always have access to pens and paper documents, the software developed should be easily adaptable to existing application software architectures (rich client, thin client, Web Service, batch). The goal? To replace the action of manually signing a document with signing it electronically.
Lex Persona focused all its efforts on research and development to meet these two requirements. Insodoing, we have designed and developed a full range of solutions that are user-friendly and easily integrated into business applications.
