Home // Posts // The Difference between Electronic Signature and Digital Signature
In today’s digital age, the way we sign documents has evolved significantly. Traditional wet ink signatures have been replaced with electronic and digital signatures, offering convenience and efficiency for both individuals and businesses. In this blog, we’ll explore the key differences between electronic signatures and digital signatures, shedding light on their advantages and use cases. We will also highlight the importance of security and authenticity, emphasizing why Secured Signing’s digital platform, utilizing digital signatures and Remote Online Notarization (RON), stands out as a top security provider.
An electronic signature, also known as an e-signature, is a digital representation of a person’s signature, used to sign electronic documents and legally binding in most countries. These signatures can take various forms, including scanned images of handwritten signatures or typed names. Electronic signatures are created using various methods, such as typing a name, drawing a signature on a touchscreen, or using a digital signature pad. If you’re in a highly regulated industry dealing with personal or confidential information, such as finance, accounting, HR, legal, or healthcare, you might need to consider a more secure option.
Advantages of Electronic Signatures
A digital signature, a specialized type of electronic signature, employs the robust encryption method known as Public Key Infrastructure (PKI). Digital signatures are generated through a digital certificate, provided by a Certificate Authority (CA). They offer the compelling advantage of demonstrating that the original document remains unaltered and free from forgery. Essentially, a digital signature acts as a unique fingerprint exclusive to a specific document, making it impossible for any other document to possess the same digital signature, ensuring the document’s integrity and authenticity.
Advantages of Digital Signatures
Electronic and digital signatures serve the same purpose of signing electronic documents but diverge significantly in their technology, security, compliance, and importance in document security.
Electronic signatures and digital signatures are two distinct methods for signing electronic documents. While electronic signatures are basic solutions, digital signatures offer a higher level of security and assurance that the signature is genuine and unaltered. Understanding the differences between these two methods is crucial for businesses and individuals seeking secure and legally enforceable electronic signatures.
At Secured Signing, we take your security and authenticity seriously. Our digital platform, incorporating digital signatures and Remote Online Notarization (RON), ensures your documents are protected, legally recognized, and tamper-proof.
