What is a digital signature certificate?




The certificate contains information about the user’s identity (name, pin code, country, email address, the date the certificate was issued and the name of the certifying authority).

A Digital Signature is an electronic form of a signature. Just as one authenticates a document with handwritten signature, a digital signature authenticates electronic documents.

A Digital Signature Certificate (DSC) can be presented electronically to prove identity, to access services on the internet or to sign certain documents digitally. A DSC provides with a high level of security for online transactions by ensuring absolute privacy of information exchanged using a DSC.
