4. How do I validate signatures with SignWise?

  1. Log in to SignWise portal.
  2. If the document you want to validate is already in SignWise, open it from your file list. If not, upload the file.
  3. If the document contains any signatures recognized by SignWise, you will see the “Existing signatures” section in document’s detail view.
  4. The white rectangles in this section contain the signer’s name and personal code and represent signatures.
  5. Click on the signature to expand it. You will see the time of signing and the region where it was given.
  6. A green bullet represents a valid signature and a red bullet represents an invalid signature.
  7. To verify the validity of a signature, you must pay attention to these details:
    • The signature is only valid if the bullet is green.
    • The signature is not equal to handwritten signature if it has the “TEST” annotation.
    • Verify that the name and personal code of the signature match the intended signer.
    • Verify that the signature is given in the intended region.

5. When my signature key is deployed in the Cloud, how can I be sure that it is not exposed in the Internet?

Your signature key is never deployed in the cloud. It stays on the token and the token authenticates it's usage every time you sign documents (PIN2). Cloud only sends information needed to sign a document to your token, not vice-versa.
