Digital signature is a type of method for authenticating digital information analogous to ordinary physical signatures on paper, but implemented using techniques from the field of Public-key Cryptography. A digital signature method generally defines two complementary algorithms, one for signing and the other for verification, and the output of the signing process is also called a digital signature.
