Understand the nuances between ‘electronic signatures’ and ‘digital signatures’.

Electronic and digital signatures differ in how each identifies the signer of a document. Electronic signatures use email, IP address, and two-factor authentication, to ensure the identity of the signer. Digital signatures use encrypted digital certificates that are tied to the specific identity of a signer.
