3090550 - Sign with a signer-held digital certificate

Symptom

For most use cases, customers, and places, a standard electronic signature is sufficient. However, transactions in heavily regulated industries, in certain countries or with governmental entities may require or prefer digital signatures.

A digital signature uses a technology called a digital certificate to authenticate the signer’s identity. Digital certificates indicate that the signers have completed extra steps to confirm their identities. A signer’s digital certificate creates the signature and then attached to the signed document.

If the sender requires you to sign with a signer-held certificate, then you must provide a digital certificate to complete the signing process.
