Definition of Digital Signature

A digital signature is a method of electronic authentication that demonstrates the sender's identity in a message or document.

In order to prove that the message has not been altered, it is constructed using encryption methods and a private key.

Having a legitimate digital signature attached to a document makes it hard to retract sending it, which is another benefit of using them.

Users have access to a quick, easy, and cost-effective method of securely authenticating documents with digital signatures.
