  • Using Aadhaar OTP (One Time Password) or Biometric (Finger Minutiae) based e-KYC services to authenticate the document signer.
  • Using OTP (One Time Password) and PIN based e-KYC services to authenticate the document signer.

The various stakeholders involved in the process include the Application Service Provider (ASP), eSign Service Provider (ESP), the Certifying Authority (CA), Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) and eKYC provider. All these stakeholders together ensure that an Aadhaar holder is enabled to sign a document through eSign services.

C-DAC is an ESP and offers services to various ASPs. In order to register as an ASP with C-DAC ESP (e-Hastakshar), the corresponding organization needs to carry out certain necessary steps including integration of their application(s) with e-Hastakshar. The integrations is based on the four levels of integration processes.

ASP initiates eSign request and ESP authenticates document signer for e-KYC before eSign. e-Hastakshar facilitates authentication of document signer by calling authentication URL of C-DAC ESP. The e-KYC response shall be received by e-Hastakshar and it shall perform eSign on the eSign request received from ASP.
