{{About|secure cryptographic signatures|simple signatures in digital form|Electronic signature}}
A '''digital signature''' or '''digital signature scheme''' is a mathematical scheme for demonstrating the authenticity of a digital message or document. A valid digital signature gives a recipient reason to believe that the message was created by a known sender, and that it was not altered in transit. Digital signatures are commonly used for software distribution, financial transactions, and in other cases where it is important to detect forgery or tampering.

Digital signatures are often used to implement [[electronic signature]]s, a broader term that refers to any electronic data that carries the intent of a signature,<ref>[http://frwebgate.access.gpo.gov/cgi-bin/getdoc.cgi?dbname=106_cong_public_laws&docid=f:publ229.106.pdf US ESIGN Act of 2000]</ref> but not all electronic signatures use digital signatures.<ref>[http://www.itc.virginia.edu/virginia.edu/fall00/digsigs/home.html The University of Virginia]</ref><ref>[http://enterprise.state.wi.us/home/strategic/esig.htm State of WI]</ref><ref>[http://www.naa.gov.au/recordkeeping/er/Security/6-glossary.html National Archives of Australia]</ref> In some countries, including the United States, India,<ref>{{cite book|first=Government of India|title=The Information Technology Act, 2000|url=http://www.dot.gov.in/Acts/itbill2000.pdf}}</ref> and members of the [[European Union]], electronic signatures have legal significance. However, laws concerning electronic signatures do not always make clear whether they are digital cryptographic signatures in the sense used here, leaving the legal definition, and so their importance, somewhat confused.
