Anyone can have a Digital Signature that can come handy anytime for signing important documents especially the government ID’s. Previously, it was not so easy to obtain and create a digital signature, but with the help of Adobe e-Signatures, you can easily get digital signatures in the pdf documents.
What is a Digital Signature?
According to Wikipedia, A digital signature is a mathematical scheme for demonstrating the authenticity of digital messages or documents. A valid digital signature gives a recipient reason to believe that the message was created by a known sender (authentication), that the sender cannot deny having sent the message (non-repudiation), and that the message was not altered in transit (integrity).
