How to create a digital signature

- Select an eSignature platform and upload your digital signature to it for use.
The majority of services follow a public key infrastructure (PKI) protocol. It enables a provider to create two keys — public and private. A signer always uses the private key when signing a document. The signature is also marked with a timestamp and embeds to the doc. If the doc is altered after the key (digital signature) was embedded, it loses its validity.
