Digital signatures are used to demonstrate the authenticity of an electronic message. The following reports take a closer look at the digital signature market and where it's headed.
Digital signatures are commonly used in cryptographic protocols involving software distribution, financial transactions and contract management solutions. Like regular signatures, they play an important role in protecting against forgery and tampering. While not fool-proof by any means, a digital signature instills trust in the recipient, telling him or her that the message was created and sent by an authorized, known user.
By definition, a digital signature consists of three components: a key generation algorithm that creates a private key consisting of random characters; a signing algorithm that produces a digital signature; and a signature verifying algorithm that processes the message, public key and digital signature to determine whether it's valid or invalid.
Some of the most common digital signature algorithms include RSA-PSS, DSA, ECDSA, Edwards-curve Digital Signature Algorithm, Rabin signature algorithm, BLS and pairing-based algorithms. While each of these algorithms has its own unique properties, they all work on the same basic principle: to create a secure connection by binding an electronic identify to an electronic document.
