RTR maintains a trusted list of qualified trust service providers who are established in Austria, in accordance with Art. 14 Par. 1 of the Signature and Trust Services Act in conjunction with Art. 22 of the eIDAS Regulation. The list also contains information about the services provided by these companies, specifically regarding the data that can be used to verify these providers’ certificates. The list uses a standardised format and is linked with the trusted lists maintained by other Member States so as to allow verification of the certificates of all trust services listed.
The signature verification service operated by RTR allows verification of electronic signatures and electronic seals which comply with a standardised format or, at a minimum, a common format.
Both the trusted list and the signature verification service are founded on a trust infrastructure that is operated on the basis of a Certification Practice Statement adopted by the supervisory body.
