Practical considerations in securing electronic signatures

Citation: Pope, Nick (2005) Practical considerations in securing electronic signatures. Digital Evidence and Electronic Signature Law Review, 2 .

Nick Pope explores the need to carefully consider how to link the use of an electronic signature with the person whose signature is used, whether it is a simple form of electronic signature or a digital signature. His paper takes a general look at the practical requirements for securing electronic signatures in both the physical as well as the electronic domains. It suggests that, whilst digital signatures have an important role to play in ensuring the security within the electronic domain, consideration also needs to be given to security in the physical world. Also, it is suggested that security applied to electronic signatures should be cost effective with a balanced approach to all the risks
