Signing with DocuSign eSignature is faster, safer and more accessible than using traditional signatures. DocuSign eSignature ensures the highest levels of enforceability. Electronic signatures are legally binding in the United States and many countries around the world. The ESIGN Act of 2000 defined the legality and enforceability of electronic signatures across all 50 states. The ESIGN Act ensures that contracts and signatures cannot be denied validity or enforceability because they are in electronic form. Not all e-signature solutions are created equal. DocuSign is the first company to warrant federal ESIGN and UETA Act compliance.


How does DocuSign eSignature provide electronic signature certification?

DocuSign eSignature is certificate-based signing performed digitally. Each signed document has its own certificate of authenticity. Digital signatures use cryptography to ensure the authenticity of the person who electronically signs a document. Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) is the basis for digital signature technology. PKI works with a third-party Certificate Authority (CA) to match the signer with their digital identity, ensuring the validity of the electronic signature.

Rest assured with digital certificate-based signing supported by DocuSign eSignature, you can:

  • See who has signed, and when

  • Access administration details to run reports

  • Set up templates and reusable documents for the ones you send most often
