  • Security of electronic transactions and the evaluation of trust service providers (TSP)
    Currently, more than ever, humans are defined by their own digital identity, and the digitization of services contributes to enormous activity in the area of network transactions. Unfortunately, the use of online services also carries a danger, which in the era of dynamic technology development is a nuisance. Trust services are electronic services provided in European Union countries that have been introduced to conclude secure transactions by electronic means. Trust service providers (TSP), facing contemporary challenges, offer an ever wider range of such services. Thanks to the use of trust services by consumers, entrepreneurs and public administration, it is possible to transfer many activities to the digital level while maintaining important standards.
