heal.generalDescription
The selection of the theme of "Digital Signature" was held for two main reasons. First of all, my personal engagement and involvement in eGovernment issues, in my 20-year term of office in the civil service (and for the longest time as Head of Departments), has enabled me to observe closely the repeated attempts to implement the measure of Digital Signature, by acquiring personal recruits for the administrative, technological and legal implications of this innovation. In addition, my recent engagement at the key position of the “City of Athens” Data Protection Officer (DPO) led me to the intensive study of literature related to "Legal Informatics", a relevant new branch of law and administrative science, in the field of which the concept and the function of digital signatures is quite much related. The criterion for selecting the individual thematic units to be analyzed in this paper was the need to highlight the points for which the legal scientist is required to have an understanding of technological developments without however the development of such capacities being linked to cumulation but with a deeper understanding of technological innovations and applications that affect either the legal science itself or our perception of law in general.

heal.abstract
Digital signature is a legally valid way to sign documents in the digital environment. In Europe, the need to establish a secure electronic communications framework has been repeatedly demonstrated. It was in 2014 that Parliament and the European Council approved the new rules on national electronic identification systems (eIDAS), which allow access to public services available in other EU countries. To achieve European coherence, it will undoubtedly have to go through the establishment of a European policy of harmonious control with other economic powers such as the USA. Also, there are some privacy and security concerns associated with the wide spread adoption of digital signature evolving towards the use of biometric identification method at advanced level. They need attention in creation of certification body for future technologies. A single Certification Body of universal scope is not viable, therefore there must be one or several networks of national or sectorial authorities, interrelated and that in turn provide service to the users of their respective fields. This research work has tried to give an idea of the important changes that the firm has experienced from its origins to our days and how they should try to adapt these changes to the social reality and leave the door open to other future changes and new technologies that will undoubtedly come.
