- A digital signature means a computer-created electronic signature that is:
- unique to the person using it;
- intended by the person using it to have the same force and effect as the use of a manual signature;
- capable of verification;
- under the sole control of the person using it; and
- linked to data in such a manner that it is invalidated if changes are made to the data.
Digital signatures require creation by specialized software platforms.
