Digital signature is a type of e-signature created in the form of certificate-based identity. When a signer electronically signs a document, the signature is created using the signer’s private key, which is always securely kept by the signer.
Depending on the laws regarding electronic signatures jurisdiction, digital signatures have the same legal binding as handwritten ones if you apply a digital signing certificate issued by a recognised certification authority.
