Electronic Signatures

Legally speaking, are electronic signatures as valid of real handwritten ones?

Are they more preferable to the inked handwritten signature in a paperless world ... the legal status of electronic signatures in a range of countries here. ... on the legality of electronic signatures in relation to real estate, wills.

We rely on handwritten signatures because a signature typically ... the same effect and provides the same legal protections as a handwritten one. .... to be addressed by those who speak in binary and C , while the lawyers.

symbols or other data in digital form attached to an electronically transmitted document as verification of the sender’s intent to sign the document.

E signatures can be dangerous also, any one came misuse also. so be carefull.

Digital signatures employ asymmetric cryptography. In many instances they provide a layer of validation and security to messages sent through a nonsecure channel: Properly implemented, a digital signature gives the receiver reason to believe the message was sent by the claimed sender. Digital seals and signatures are equivalent to handwritten signatures and stamped seals. Digital signatures are equivalent to traditional handwritten signatures in many respects, but properly implemented digital signatures are more difficult to forge than the handwritten type. Digital signature schemes, in the sense used here, are cryptographically based, and must be implemented properly to be effective. Digital signatures can also provide non-repudiation, meaning that the signer cannot successfully claim they did not sign a message, while also claiming their private key remains secret; further, some non-repudiation schemes offer a time stamp for the digital signature, so that even if the private key is exposed, the signature is valid. Digitally signed messages may be anything representable as a bitstring: examples include electronic mail, contracts, or a message sent via some other cryptographic protocol.

Digital signatures are often used to implement electronic signatures, a broader term that refers to any electronic data that carries the intent of a signature, but not all electronic signatures use digital signatures n some countries, including the United States, India, Brazil, Saudi Arabia, the European Union and Switzerland,

The authenticity of a handwritten signature can be established in a number of ways. The handwriting itself, being unique to each individual, can be analyzed and verified. The letterhead can provide information, as can the postage stamp or package tracking functions. Further, it is often easy to tell whether part of a written agreement has been changed – for example, if a term is scratched out. And it is often the best evidence in court if a disagreement arises regarding the terms or existence of the agreement.

In the past few centuries, a detailed body of law has developed regarding the effect of a handwritten signature. A signature shows intent to be bound in a contract. It can provide assurance that everyone understands the terms of an agreement. It can evidence approval of a document. We rely on handwritten signatures because a signature typically provides a way to prove who made the agreement (authentication) and what the parties intended and agreed to do (non-repudiation).The authenticity of a handwritten signature can be established in a number of ways. The handwriting itself, being unique to each individual, can be analyzed and verified. The letterhead can provide information, as can the postage stamp or package tracking functions.

Digital signatures are a standard element of most cryptographic protocol suites, and are commonly used for software distribution, financial transactions, and in other cases where it is important to detect forgery or tampering.

According to the U.S. Federal ESIGN Act passed in 2000, an electronic signature is an "electronic sound, symbol, or process, attached to or logically associated with a contract or other record and executed or adopted by a person with the intent to sign the record.

An electronic signature, or e-signature, is any electronic means that indicates either that a person adopts the contents of an electronic message, or more broadly that the person who claims to have written a message is the one who wrote it (and that the message received is the one that was sent by this person). By comparison, a signature is a stylized script associated with a person. In commerce and the law, a signature on a document is an indication that the person adopts the intentions recorded in the document. Both are comparable to a seal. In many instances, common with engineering companies for example, digital seals are also required for another layer of validation and security. Digital seals and signatures are equivalent to handwritten signatures and stamped seals.Increasingly, digital signatures are used in e-commerce and in regulatory filings as digital signatures are more secure than a simple generic electronic signature.[1][2] The concept itself is not new, with common law jurisdictions having recognized telegraph signatures as far back as the mid-19th century and faxed signatures since the 1980s.

Of course yes, and in this generation everything became digital, so E - signature should be accepted.
