What is Digital Signature?
A digital signature or e-signature for short (not to be confused with a digital certificate) is an electronic signature that can be utilized to authenticate the identity of the sender of a message or the signer of a document, and certainly to ensure that the original content of the message or document that has been sent is the same or unchanged. Digital signatures are easily transportable, cannot be imitated by someone else, and can be automatically time-stamped. Meaning to say, it’s very efficient in view of transacting legal matters. The ability to ensure that the original signed message arrived means that the sender cannot easily repudiate it later.
