Digital Signatures: FAQ

What is a digital signature?

A digital signature is an electronic form of a signature that can be used to authenticate the identity of the sender of a message or the signer of a document.

All to ensure that the original content of the message or document has not been altered.

How do digital signatures work?

Digital signatures are based on public key infrastructure (PKI). When a signer electronically signs a document, a unique digital fingerprint, known as a hash, is created.

This hash is encrypted with the signer's private key and can be decrypted by anyone with the signer's public key, verifying the document's integrity and authenticity.

Are digital signatures legally binding?

Yes, in many jurisdictions around the world, digital signatures have the same legal standing as handwritten signatures, provided they meet certain criteria set forth by the relevant laws, such as the eIDAS in the EU, UETA and ESIGN Act in the USA.

Can digital signatures be forged?

Digital signatures are significantly more difficult to forge than handwritten signatures.

The security of a digital signature lies in the uniqueness of the private key used to create the signature.

As long as the private key remains confidential, the security of the digital signature is maintained.

What is the difference between a digital signature and an electronic signature?

The term "electronic signature" is a broad category that includes any electronic means that indicates acceptance of an agreement or a record.

A digital signature is a type of electronic signature that uses cryptographic techniques to provide additional security features.
