Electronic Signature

What is the electronic signature?

The e-signature is fundamentally a concept of legal nature. The terms digital signature, electronic signature and digital certificate are often confused.

According to Wikipedia, the e-signature is defined as:

”An electronic signature, or e-signature, refers to data in electronic form, which is logically associated with other data in electronic form and which is used by the signatory to sign”


The e-signature’s core functions are:

  • Uniquely identify the signatory.
  • Ensure the integrity of the signed document.
