Digital signature certificate (DSC)

A Digital Signature Certificate (DSC) is a secure digital key that certifies the identity of its holder, issued by licensed certifying authorities. It functions as the digital equivalent of a physical certificate and includes critical user information such as name, pin code, country, email address, and the date of issuance, along with the name of the certifying authority. These certificates use public key encryptions to create signatures, ensuring that the signer’s identity is validated and the data within the document has not been altered. DSCs are essential for electronic documents and are legally admissible in court.

 

Digital Signature Certificates can be used for signing, encrypting documents, or both, and are typically issued for periods of 1 to 3 years. Their primary purpose is to allow documents to be digitally signed, providing a secure method to verify transactions and legal documents electronically. This capability makes DSCs critical in maintaining the integrity and security of digital communications and transactions.
