Document signing certificates enable organizations to digitally sign Adobe®, Microsoft Office® and other document types, marking them with visual trust indicators that verify the publisher’s identity—an indication that the document has not been altered.
With document signing certificates organizations can authenticate documents, allowing for secure and efficient electronic transmission of official papers including legal documents, invoices, engineering plans and diagrams, diplomas, charters and more while reducing costs associated with printing and maintaining paper files.
This white paper will discuss:
- The history of document signing
- What digital signatures are and how they function
- The benefits and objectives of implementing document signing certificates
