Digital Signature Market Definition

A digital signature is an electronic form of a signature that uses an advanced mathematical technique to verify the authenticity and integrity of digital messages/documents as well as the identity of the signer. Digital signatures are safer and more secure than traditional pen-paper signatures. The digital signature ensures the information originates from the signer and is unaltered. Digital signatures are the fastest way to authenticate a signer’s identity, and they are strong proof that the signer and no one else has signed the document.
