Digital signature software

Digital signatures implement e-signatures, but involve a third-party observer, and, if done properly, the former are more secure and temper-proof then the latter. And thus they are generally used in cases when it is especially crucial to assure authenticity and integrity: from software distribution to government communications. A physical analogy of digital signature could be an ink-on-paper signature approved by a stamp seal of a trusted third party.

How to digitally sign a document

To digitally sign documents, a signer needs, first, to obtain a digital certificate from a Certificate Authority (CA). This certificate is used to generate a pair of keys that, in turn, are used to encrypt the document and the signature.

A detailed explanation of the whole algorithm can be found in our article “What is a digital signature?”

Complex mathematical processes that implement encryption are performed under the hood, so, for users, signing itself will be a rather streamline and clear process no more difficult than e-signing or ink-signing. Thus software used for digital signing isn’t much different in appearance and user experience from that used for electronic signing.
