What is Digital Signature?

Digital Signatures (standard electronic signatures) take the concept of traditional paper-based signing and turn it into an electronic "fingerprint.”

This "fingerprint,” or coded message, is unique to both the document and the signer and binds both of them together.

The digital signature ensures the authenticity of the signer.

Any changes made to the document after it is signed invalidate the signature, thereby protecting against signature forgery and information tampering.

Digital signatures sustain signer authenticity, accountability, data integrity and non-repudiation of documents and transactions.

Of course. In case there is any alteration in the document, the signature is no longer valid since the document has been modified and the signed hash does not match the current hash. On the other hand, if there is any indication that the user’s private key has been compromised (among other reasons), the digital certificate can be revoked and can no longer be used for signing.

Due to the multiple benefits it brings and the level of security it offers, the digital signature has been adopted by numerous organisations in the public and private sectors, and in industries as diverse as financial, healthcare or legal. The laws of each country regulate its use.

Besides, many companies aspire to achieve the model of “paperless office“, which would allow them to save costs, have a better organisation of documents and produce a lower environmental impact.

Sure, since 2004 e-signature law and the ITIDA rules. any electronic document signed with a valid digital signature is considered a valid piece of evidence similar to a physical document signed with a hand-written signature.

How does a digital signature work?

Digital signatures are based on digital certificates issued by certification authorities (CA). The certificates are used to link digital identities to the pair of keys generated by a user and contain data such as their name, the date on which the certificate expires, a copy of the public key and information about the CA that issued the certificate.

The corresponding CA verifies the identity of each user; once it has been carried out, the said user can issue a digital certificate and sign the document they want.

In turn, the digital certificates are based on asymmetric cryptography, and as we mentioned in the previous point, they have a public key and a private one.

The corresponding CA verifies the identity of each user; once it has been carried out, the said user can issue a digital certificate and sign the document they want.

From a technical point of view, when you want to sign a document, a hash (a unique and non-transferable identifier of a digital document) is usually generated using a hash function. This hash is encrypted using the signer’s private key and combined with the public key to create what is commonly known as a digital signature.

The receiver, in turn, verifies the identity of the signatory through the public key, which allows guaranteeing the privacy of the information exchanged between two users.
