WHAT IS DIGITAL SIGNATURE?

Digital signature is a mathematical algorithm used to verify the authenticity and integrity of a message, software, or digital document.

Digital signature is equivalent to a handwritten signature or a stamped seal but provides much higher security. It often addresses issues of forgery and impersonation in digital communication.

This technology is created to provide information about the origin, identity, and status of documents, transactions, etc. It can also be used to express and confirm consent.

In most countries today, including the United States, digital signatures are a legal constraint similar to traditional handwritten signatures recognized by the law.
