Professor Dr. Eugene Clark of Griffith University School of Business has published E-Conveyancing in Australia: An Important Step Along the Journey to E-government, Journal of Law, Information, and Science, 21(1) (2011).
Here is the abstract:
This article has two broad objectives. First, it reports on progress towards achieving the Australian National Electronic Conveyancing System (NECS). Secondly, the article analyses the significance of the NECS in the general context of e-Government. The NECS project was established by Australian state and territory governments in 2005 and significant progress has been made over the past five years. When the NECS is completed, conveyancers, legal practitioners, financial institutions, mortgage processors and other players involved in conveyancing will be able to access the NECS online with an electronic workspace provided for each property transaction.
The system will allow users to provide, secure, certify and sign documentation. Digital Signature Certificates (DSCs) will ensure authentication and prevent repudiation and various risk mitigation and fraud prevention measures will be taken. Financial settlement will occur through the Reserve Bank’s Information and Transfer System (RITS) and the State and Territory Revenue Offices will receive duty and tax payments electronically. Consumers will be able to track the progress of their transaction via limited Internet access to the NECS. Financial institutions will be able to integrate their services and mortgage documentation systems with the NEC system. Collectively, the NECS is an excellent example of the substantive and procedural challenges involved in making e-government a reality.
Mason and Bromby on Electronic Identification, Authentication and Signatures in the European Digital Single MarketApril 28, 2012
Stephen Mason, Barrister, and Dr. Michael Bromby of Glasgow Caledonian University, have published Response to Digital Agenda for Europe: Electronic identification, authentication and signatures in the European digital single market. Public consultation, European Journal of Law and Technology, 3(1) (2012).
Here are the authors’ recommendations:
It is recommended that the EU consider each item [that is the subject of the consultation] (electronic identification, electronic authentication and electronic signatures) separately.
Each Member State of the EU has implemented the Directive on electronic signatures in a different way, taking into account their legal and cultural norms. The way the Directive has been implemented has not caused e-commerce to fail. No evidence has been put forward to suggest that e-commerce between Member States is not effective because of the way electronic signatures are implemented in different Member States. It is recommended that in relation to Directive 1999/93/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 13 December 1999 on a Community framework for electronic signatures, OJ L 13, 19.01.2000, p.12, the EU either:
- repeal the Directive, or
- alter the Directive to be a Regulation, or
- repeal those parts of the Directive dealing with the technical details relating to advanced electronic signatures and qualified electronic signatures.

Kubiak et al. on Mediated Signatures: Towards Undeniability of Digital Data in Technical and Legal FrameworkMay 12, 2010
Przemyslaw Kubiak of Politechnika Wrocławska, and colleagues, presented a paper entitled Mediated Signatures – Towards Undeniability of Digital Data in Technical and Legal Framework, at LIT 2010: The 3rd Workshop on Legal Informatics and Legal Information Technology, held 3 May 2010, in Berlin, Germany, in conjunction with BIS 2010: The 13th International Conference on Business Information Systems. Here is the abstract of the paper:
We present an approach different from the classical framework of qualified electronic signatures that seem to offer much better properties regarding usability, costs, risk level as well as security in technical sense. Our approach is based on mediated signatures and chaining mechanisms that replace time stamping services.
