What is a digital signature?

Digital signature is a more advanced and secure type of the electronic signature. It can be used to comply with the most demanding legal and regulatory requirements because it provides a high level of assurance about the identity of each signatory and the authenticity of the signed documents.

Digital signatures use a certificate-based digital ID issued by an accredited Certificate Authority (CA) or Trust Service Provider (TSP) so when you digitally sign a document, the signature is uniquely linked to your identity, bound to the document with encryption, and everything can be verified using underlying technology known as Public Key Infrastructure (PKI).
