When Digital Signatures are validated, an icon appears in the document message bar to indicate the signature status.
The parties on either side of a digital signature can also detect whether the signed document was altered or changed in any way that would invalidate it.
In addition, electronic messages are signed with the sender’s private decryption key and verified by anyone who can access the sender’s public encryption key; this further ensures that both parties are who they say they are and that the content of the message has not been changed or intercepted.
Digital and electronic signatures are often used synonymously, but most types of electronic signatures do not have the security features of true digital signatures.
Legally, there are just a few instances when a wet signature is required.
The use of wet, electronic or digital signatures is left to the discretion of each party.
Since the Electronic Signatures in Global and National Commerce Act (ESIGN) went into effect in 2000, digital and electronic signatures have held the same legal standing as wet signatures.
Depending on how you have configured your application, validation may occur automatically.
Signature validity is determined by checking the authenticity of the signature’s digital ID certificate status and document integrity: When you receive a signed document, you may want to validate its signature(s) to verify the signer and the signed content.
