Digital Signature Certificate

What is DCS?

Just as a handwritten signature validates a paper document, a DSC provides a digital version of this assurance in the digital world. It uses cryptographic techniques to create a unique digital fingerprint for a document, ensuring that if anyone tries to change it, the digital signature will become invalid. This helps in verifying the identity of the sender and ensures the document's integrity.

Different classes of DSC:

User There are primarily three types of Digital Signature Certificates (DSCs) classified based on their purpose and level of validation:

Class 1 DSC:

Basic level of assurance, used for individual purposes. Typically used in environments where risks and consequences of data compromise are minimal. Validates the user's name and email ID against the database.

Class 2 DSC:

Offers a higher level of assurance compared to Class 1. Used for filing income tax returns, GST filings, and company registrations. Requires personal verification based on pre-verified databases.

Class 3 DSC:

Provides the highest level of assurance. Used in online participation/bidding in e-auctions, e-tendering, or for high-level financial transactions. Requires the applicant's presence before the Certifying Authority (CA) for identity verification.
