Handy-Signatur (mobile phone signature)

IST Austria has become a registration site for the mobile phone signature (Handy-Signatur).

For logging in to a service or to electronically sign, you are using the Mobile Phone Signature following the same procedures as when you’re accessing your traditional e-banking solution. Everything you need is a ready-to-use mobile phone.

Activation and usage of the Mobile Phone Signature are totally free of charge.
