You will rightly ask if I’m sure about the connection shown above. Well, I couldn’t be more certain, and you will be as well (plus maybe thankful) when you finish reading this week’s blog.
“The great question that has never been answered, and which I have not yet been able to answer, despite my thirty years of research into the feminine soul, is ‘What does a woman want’?” (Sigmund Freud, Ernest Jones’ Sigmund Freud: Life and Work)
A lot has been written, spoken, and sung about what women want since Freud’s era. And he’s not the only one who has been unsure about this fundamental question. Half the human race isn’t sure.
I dare to say that the key lies with the qualities of digital signatures. How? Here may be the much desired answer:
Proof of identity – Women want to feel safe and trust the person they are sharing their time / life with. They want to know that ‘what they see – is what they get’ without any unexpected/ undisclosed surprises (lover, child, gambling habit, diseases, etc.).
In a similar way, the user-based PKI digital signature solution creates an exclusive digital certificate for the signatory using a cryptographic key that eliminates the possibility to change or duplicate a signature. Every signature is uniquely linked to the signatory and document by using the signatory’s Private Key.
Data integrity – Women want to know you are truthful with what you say (not just trying to please them) and the way you behave (when you are alone or next to your mother). They are very sensitive to any nuance and change in voice or use of words.
A user-based digital signature ensures non-forgeable signatures. The signed document is sealed with the signatory’s trusted PKI key, and any changes made to the document or signatures are detectable.
Affirmative intent – Women want you to be transparent about your intent in the relationship (even when it’s not exactly ‘good news’). Don’t deceive. Be genuine, think for the long-term, and you will be very much appreciated.
A user-based PKI digital signature adequately indicates the signatory’s sole custody and approval of the information to which the signature relates. The encrypted electronic signature authenticates signatures and documents as genuine, and therefore, makes the signing of documents online secure, efficient, and fast.
My conclusion? The above information provides the recipient (whether it is a woman or a Secured Signing PKI digital signature service user) with the important assurance they are dealing with a trusted, reliable, and verified Real Thing!
