Do You Know the Difference Between a Digital Signature and an E-Signature?

Sometimes I feel like I’m on top of this digital technology stuff… other times I see an email come through like one I received today from Silanis, asking me if I know the difference between a digital signature and an electronic signature and I had no idea there was a difference. Doh! There is a difference, and it’s quite an extensive one! Here are the definitions for each term from Silanis:

E-Signature Definition

E-signature or Electronic Signature is the capture of the process a person goes through when demonstrating intent during an electronic transaction.

Digital Signature Definition

Digital signature is encryption technology containing critical metadata pertaining to the e-signature.

The electronic signature is a legally binding record and the digital signature is the underlying encryption technology that verifies the authenticity of the transaction.
