McLean, VA -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/20/2012 -- A new website, http://www.digital-signatures.org, has just been launched to provide information on what a digital signature is, and how using digital signatures can enhance your business. Many people and business owners are unfamiliar with what a digital signature is. A simple explanation is that a digital signature is like an original hand-written signature in that it is a verification that the signer is who he or she purports to be.
As more and more business is conducted online and remotely, digital signatures will become essential for both customers and businesses. A digital signature is attached to an electronic document such as text file, spreadsheet, or e-mail, and verifies that the document is genuine. Generally, the best digital signatures have a built in security algorithm which is encrypted and not easily forged or copied. To be even more precise in explaining the value of a digital signature, it generally consists of two distinct parts: Encryption and Authentication.
Encryption is taking all the data one computer is transferring to another and coding it into a form that only the receiving computer will be able to properly decode. Authentication is the method of confirming that the information being received is coming from a reliable source. These two methods taken in tandem create what is commonly called a digital signature. As private business, governmental organizations, and individuals have continued the move from a paper based way of conducting business to a digital way, a valid and secure digital signature has grown in importance and will continue to do so.
The http://www.digital-signatures.org website has been developed to provide information and unbiased reviews about digital signature solutions and products in the marketplace. By using this site you can quickly locate information on digital signatures and find the right providers and services if you need to begin working with digital signatures in any form.
