Digital Signature Certificate - An Overview

DSC stands for Digital Signature Certificate. It is the digital equivalent of a person’s physical or paper signature. It is used to validate the identity of a person. It can be used digitally to prove the identity of a person, to access information on the Internet or to sign certain documents digitally.

DSC provides an enhanced level of security as well as safety for online banking transactions by electronically verifying the financial transactions and encrypting the data such that only the intended persons can have access to it.
It includes information about the name, address, e-mail ID, pin code, country, and date of issue and date of expiry, as well as the name of the Certifying Authority. It uses public key encryption algorithms to create the signatures.
A DSC is issued by a recognized Certifying Authority or a CA to validate the identity of the certificate holder. The Certifying Authority or the CA is granted the License to issue DSCs under Section 24 of the Indian IT-Act, 2000.

After creation of the DSC, the Certificate can be downloaded into a physical USB token or can also be installed to the Desktop/Laptop. The person has to make sure that the drivers required by the token are installed on his system as guided by the Certifying Authority.
We, at LegalFidelity, can help get DSC approval effectively within 10-15 minutes only.

Benefits of a DSC or Digital Signature Certificate

The main benefits of a Digital Signature Certificate are as follows:

Improved Security
DSC provides an enhanced level of security as well as safety for online banking transactions by electronically verifying the financial transactions and encrypting the data such that only the intended persons can have access to it.

Time and Cost Efficient
Digital signatures reduce the time and cost spent on signing documents and contracts. Documents can be signed by the required person just by doing some clicks of the button. This renders unnecessary the requirement of a person to be physically present at a location. This is especially useful when the signer is located in a different physical location.

Worldwide Acceptance
A DSC is accepted in all the countries across the world as it offers enhanced level of security. It is important for companies looking to take part in government e-tendering process. Additionally, it is also used by government bodies like GST, MCA, Income Tax, etc., to name a few.

Legal Validity
A DSC is issued by a recognized Certifying Authority or a CA to validate the identity of the certificate holder. The Certifying Authority or the CA is granted the License to issue DSCs under Section 24 of the Indian IT-Act, 2000.

Types of DSCs

There are three types or classes of DSC, namely, Class 1, Class 2 and Class 3. They are used for different purposes depending upon the type of organization and its requirements.

Class 1:
Class 1 certificate is issued to both organizations as well as individuals; to confirm that the information given by the subscriber does not conflicts with the information mentioned in the well-recognized consumer database. This is just a basic mode of authentication and is generally not considered to be of major benefit.

Class 2:
Similar to Class 1, Class 2 certificates are issued for both organizations as well as private individuals use. A Class 2 DSC is used for environments where risks and consequences pertaining to the data compromise are moderate. It is also used during financial transactions or to access one’s personal details, and for other transactions, where there is a substantial risk of malicious activity. Additionally, it is used to file various government forms in India.

Class 3:
Just like Class 1 or Class 2, a Class 3 Certificate is issued to individuals as well as organizations. But Unlike a Class 1 certificate, both class 2 and class 3 DSCs are applicable in situations with significant risks. However, a Class 3 DSC is applicable to situations where threats to data and the consequences involved due to the failure of security services are high, for example, high value transactions or high levels of risk.
It is an upgraded version of Class 2. It is used by individuals and organizations who want to take part in bidding for government e-tenders or online tenders as well as e-auctions. In some cases, the applicant may be required to be physically present before the CAs to receive a Class 3 certificate. Class 3 DSCs are applicable in conditions that are prone to information theft, fraudulence or failure of security.
