How does a Digital Signature Certificate work?
A Digital Signature Certificate explicitly associates the identity of a device with a pair of electronic keys: Private and Public key
It is supported by the association Authority. The certificate contains information about a user’s identity when the certificate was issued and the name of the Certifying Authority.
These keys complement each other in that one does not work in the loss of the other. They are used by browsers and servers to encrypt and decrypt regarding the status of the Certificate User during the information transfer process. The user retains control of the Private Key which can only be used with the password.
The authentication process fails if either one of these keys does not match. This means that the encrypted data cannot be decrypted and therefore is unavailable to unauthorized parties. So when a Digital Signature works, it looks for the Signing and the Encryption of the User.
