From now on, through "Diia", Ukrainians can use a digital signature according to the European eIDAS standard

The Ministry of digital transformation reported that beta testing of the international digital signature started in Ukraine on April 3. From now on, Ukrainians in Europe can sign documents using Diia.Signature-EU, which is certified according to the eIDAS European regulation.

To use Diia.Signature-EU, update Diia and the application will automatically create a signature according to two standards Ukrainian DSTU and international ECDSA.
