Buy Digital Signature Certificate Online
Posted: Sep 21, 2022
Digital Signature Certificate is used for authenticating the sender of messages and documents sent electronically or over the Internet. This cryptographical mechanism also informs the receiver that the message or electronic document has not been tampered with. The DSCs are issued by certified authorities that have been authorized by the controller of certifying agencies or CCA in India.
This technology is revolutionizing our lives on day to day basis as well as the way we fulfill legal formalities and conduct business. Thus, a digital signature can be used for many purposes like tax filing, bill payments taking part in e-tenders, etc. Digital signatures differ from electronic signatures as they are derived as a hash value using cryptographical methods. The unique hash value is a series of encrypted numbers that are limited to a fixed length for all documents irrespective of the size of the documents.
Digital signature generation is one of the most secure mechanisms and cannot be tampered with, but still, users need to be cautious and should not reveal private details. The hash generation leads to the creation of a private key by the sender and at the same time generated a public key that is meant for the receivers. It is important not to reveal the private key and keep it stored in the password-protected hard drive of a USB Token. The process is also known as public key cryptography or asymmetric encryption. In simpler terms, the private key encrypts the data while the public key decrypts the data for the receivers.
There were earlier two types of DSCs:
- Class 2 Dsc
- Class 3 Dsc
Class 2 has been done away with, and only class 3 remains. So when you apply for the certificate leave one out. Only Class 3 digital signature certification is applicable now.
