Remote Online Notarization
Verification of Identity
Signers must pass a Knowledge Based Authentication (KBA) quiz
Signers upload their IDs for review
Signers take a selfie
Security software performs a full analysis of the IDs
Finally a live visual inspection of the ID over video
Secured Video Conferencing
The signers, any witnesses, and the eNotary meet online at a signing platform mandated by the Missouri Secretary of State. The signing takes place live, and both its audio and video will be recorded for record retention purposes.
Digitally Sealed Documents
The document is digitally sealed using an IdenTrust certificate specific to the eNotary. If the document is ever altered, the seal will indicate it.
The eNotary then sends a PDF of the completed document to the signer. Since the notarized document is digital, and an original, they can email it wherever.

But how do I sign?
Mobile devices will have you sign with a finger.
On a PC or Mac you can:

draw it with the mouse
together with your smartphone, you can sign with a finger

With the document being digital, how is it secure?
The document is "sealed" with an IdenTrust™ security certificate. When the file is opened, it explains how it is sealed and if it has been tampered with. You can print and provide a hardcopy. If they want further proof, send them the file. Even better save a tree, and send them the file first!
What if I can't get the KBA questions right?
I will be unable to notarize your document online. You will be given two attempts and few people have trouble.
