Importance of digital signature certificate (DSC) is increasing at a very fast rate from last few year. While submitting the document online in various government department it is necessary to use the digital signature to upload the document. Digital signature is also beneficial for the point of privacy and security.
What is digital Signature certificate?
A digital Signature certificate is like an electronic "credit card" that establishes your credentials when doing business or other transactions on the Web with government department sites. Digital signature are safe for security and privacy point of view. Digital Certificates are issued by listed and licensed Certification Authority (CA) which are approved by the concerned government department. Digital Signature Certificate contains various information like your name, a serial number, expiration dates, a copy of the certificate holder's public key (used for encrypting messages and digital signatures), and the digital signature of the certificate-issuing authority so that a recipient can verify that the certificate is real. Digital Signature Certificates have various uses like can be used for E-Filing of Income Tax Returns, Employees Provident Funds organisations (EPFO),Employees state insurance corporation (ESIC), E-Tendering in India on Government Websites such as Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation, and also Director General of Foreign Trade, Ministry of Corporate Affairs and Registrar of Companies Applications.

Know about Digital Signature
A digital signature is a mathematical scheme for demonstrating the authenticity of digital messages or documents. A valid digital signature gives a recipient reason to believe that the message was created by a known sender (authentication), that the sender cannot deny having sent the message (non-repudiation), and that the message was not altered in transit (integrity).
Digital signatures are a standard element of most cryptographic protocol suites, and are commonly used for software distribution, financial transactions, contract management software, and in other cases where it is important to detect forgery or tampering.
Digital SignatureDigital signatures are often used to implement electronic signatures, a broader term that refers to any electronic data that carries the intent of a signature, but not all electronic signatures use digital signatures. In some countries, including the United States, Turkey, India, Brazil, Indonesia, Mexico, Saudi Arabia, Switzerland and the countries of the European Union, electronic signatures have legal significance.
Digital signatures employ asymmetric cryptography. In many instances they provide a layer of validation and security to messages sent through a non-secure channel: Properly implemented, a digital signature gives the receiver reason to believe the message was sent by the claimed sender. Digital seals and signatures are equivalent to handwritten signatures and stamped seals. Digital signatures are equivalent to traditional handwritten signatures in many respects, but properly implemented digital signatures are more difficult to forge than the handwritten type. Digital signature schemes, in the sense used here, are cryptographically based, and must be implemented properly to be effective. Digital signatures can also provide non-repudiation, meaning that the signer cannot successfully claim they did not sign a message, while also claiming their private key remains secret; further, some non-repudiation schemes offer a time stamp for the digital signature, so that even if the private key is exposed, the signature is valid. Digitally signed messages may be anything re-presentable as a bitstring: examples include electronic mail, contracts, or a message sent via some other cryptographic protocol.
