Quick Insight to Digital Signature Certificates (DSC)

Digital Signature serves as a proof of your identity. Its the digital equivalent of a handwritten signature or stamped seal, but offering far more inherent security, a digital signature is intended to solve the problem of tampering and impersonation in digital communications. Digital signatures can provide the added assurances of evidence to origin, identity and status of an electronic document, transaction or message, as well as acknowledging informed consent by the signer.
In short, a digital signature is a mathematical technique used to validate the authenticity and integrity of a message, software or digital document.

What are different types of DSC?
There are three types of Digital Signature Certificates as follows:
Class 1 - To be issued to individuals/ Private Subscribers and mostly used for email encryption.
Class 2 - To be issued for Income Tax filing, ROC and MCA filing, DIN or DPIN application etc.
Class 3 - To be issued for the purpose of e-Tendering, e-Procurement, Trademark / Patent /copyright application filing, etc.

If the two hash values match, the message has not been tampered with, and the receiver knows the message is from sender.
