Digital Signature:

  • 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.
