Paperless & efficient
Document Signing Certificate is designed to apply in paperless office operations to digitally sign any document. Digital signature doesn’t only protect valuable online data, but also makes them enjoy the efficiency of e-document workflows.
Confirmed sender identity
Document signing certificate can authenticate sender’s identity and the recipient also can review a trusted digital signature on the document. It assures authenticity of the document.
Compliant with industry standards, Document Signing Certificate support RSA algorithm, 2048+bit keys, SHA256-bit encryption to protect critical business documents and data from tampering by malicious parties.
Documents signed with the trusted Document Signing certificates comply with the U.S. Federal ESIGN Act, European Union’s and eIDAS and other assorted international laws, making your documents legally binding.
Digital signatures created by Document Signing Certificates can be timestamped and include an audit trail that never expires. This means if the document is altered at any time, the recipient will be notified immediately.
Sectigo Document Signing certificate offer unlimited signatures in its lifetime. This is an excellent deal if you're signing many documents every year—you won't have to pay for each document you sign.
What is a Document Signing Certificate?
A Document Signing Certificate is an electronic file issued by a Certificate Authority (CA). It contains a pair of secure digital key for assuring signer’s identity authentication and integrity of electronically transmitted documents.
How do digital signatures work?
Digital signatures, like handwritten signatures, are unique to each signer. It uses public key infrastructure (PKI), which is considered the gold standard for digital identity authentication and encryption. PKI relies on the use of two related keys, a public key and a private key, that together create a key pair to encrypt and decrypt a message using strong public key cryptography algorithms. Using both public and private keys that are generated to provide the signer with their own digital identity, a digital signature is generated and encrypted using that signer’s private key, and also a timestamp of when the document was signed using the key. These keys are normally saved in a secure manner; for example, Sectigo and DigiCert sends USB with your certificate and keys to you.
What need to know before you place an order?
Validation is an important part of certificate issuing process. As such, every CA has followed stringent validation policies and procedures to strengthen the security of certificate operations and the validation processes. Take Sectigo for example, and this is the validation materials needed below:
The validation work is done by Sectigo. You are required to respond to emails, follow instructions and provide the requested documents.
