  • the Exchange System accepts the following signature formats:
    • CAdES-BES   (CMS Advanced Electronic Signatures) with a structure compliant with the public specifications ETSI TS 101 733 V1.7.4, as provided for in the appropriate legislation starting from 1 September 2010,
    •  XAdES-BES (XML Advanced Electronic Signatures), with a structure compliant with the public specifications ETSI TS 101 903 version 1.4.1, as provided for in the appropriate legislation starting from 1 September 2010. The only method accepted for this type of signature is the “enveloped” method. In addition the XAdES signature must have the Reference element with URI=“” or with URI=“#iddoc” where iddoc is the identity code of the document to be signed: the URI attribute cannot be omitted from the Reference elements.
    On the basis of the signature format adopted, the file becomes “.xml.p7m” (for CAdES-BES signature) or “.xml” (for XAdES-BES signature).
