Digital signatures maintain authenticity and provide a safe environment for sending and receiving data. You can work on collaborative projects, transmit files over the Internet, and help guarantee that the files have not been altered.
With a digital signature, you can collaborate more easily with others on projects. Recipients of drawings are provided with reliable information about who created a set of drawings and whether they were modified since they were digitally signed.
When you attach a digital signature to a file, anyone who views the file is notified if modifications were made after you signed it. Modifications invalidate a digital signature.
Digital signatures provide an electronic means of validating (verifying the authenticity of) signatures that are attached to drawing files.
