What's a Qualified Electronic Signature (QES)?

A qualified electronic signature (QES) is a type of electronic signature that is considered to be equivalent to a handwritten signature in terms of its legal validity. In order for an electronic signature to be considered a Qualified Electronic Signature, it must meet certain criteria set forth in the European Union's eIDAS regulation. These criteria include the use of a qualified certificate, the ability to identify the signer, and the ability to detect any subsequent changes to the signed document.
