What is a Digital Signature?
It is a mathematical scheme based on cryptographic protocols. It is basically used to verify whether digital documents are authentic or not. In most cases, you will need digital signatures to sign documents electronically. You can do that in the countries where electronic signatures are legal, for example, European countries, the USA, Mexico, Brazil, Indonesia, Uruguay, Turkey, and many more countries.
How It Works
Digital signatures are based on asymmetric cryptography. They are similar to handwritten signatures even if created electronically. It is more difficult to create a false digital signature as many algorithms are used to check its validity. If the electronic signature is properly made, it can testify that the sender really signed it and the document was not altered on the way.
