• A digital signature on an electronic document is equivalent to a personal signature on a written document. A digital signature provides proof of the document's origin. The certificate owner "signs" a document by using the private key that is associated with the certificate. The recipient of the document uses the corresponding public key to decrypt the signature, which verifies the sender as the source.
Example Sentences:He used a scanned copy of his signature instead of a digital one.
