Settings Expectations for a RON Signing Experience
Step 1 is identity verification that requires all signing parties to pass knowledge-based authentication prior to a system performed credential ID test. A user’s ID can consist of a driver’s license, a government issued photo ID or passport.
Step 2 is the actual audio-video conference where the notary and signer meet virtually to talk to each other over a webcam in real-time. During this step the notary will observe all necessary digital signatures by the signer and will apply appropriate notarial certificates and seals to the digital document(s).
Step 3 is tamper proofing the executed digital documents with a date/time-stamp digital certificate. This certificate will identify whether any of the documents are altered in the future.
Audit Trail and Notary Records
Step 4 is the audit trail and notarial records that are required to be kept to prove who actually digitally signed the document(s).
