Digital signature is an algorithm system and is used to validate the validity and uniqueness of a document, replacing the conventional way of handwriting signature.
The use of digital signatures has been institutionalized both at European level and in our country and is the basic mechanism for the electronisation of transactions.
An authorized digital signature is required to use the private key, which is stored in the SAID (Signature Creation Safeguard). The use of the electronic key excludes any case of impersonation and falsification of the document.
