Validating electronic signatures
It is difficult to challenge the authorship of a statement signed with a qualified electronic signature - the statement is non-reputable.Technically, a qualified electronic signature is implemented through an advanced electronic signature that utilizes a digital certificate, which has been encrypted through a security signature-creating device Since well before the American Civil War began in 1861, morse code was used to send messages electrically by telegraphy.This type of signature provides the same legal standing as a handwritten signature as long as it adheres to the requirements of the specific regulation it was created under (e.g., e IDAS in the European Union, NIST-DSS in the USA or Zert ES in Switzerland).Electronic signatures are a legal concept distinct from digital signatures, a cryptographic mechanism often used to implement electronic signatures.Additionally, the Windows Certificate Store is Windows-only while PKCS #12 is compatible with both Windows and Mac OS.When you create a self-signed digital ID, you need to send copies of your public certificate to anybody who will receive documents with your digital signature so they can validate it.
You can create and validate signatures from self-signed certificates, which is ideal for certification that occurs within organizations or among trusted parties.

If you choose to use a self-signed digital ID, you will need to create it (described below) and then export your public certificate so you can send it to recipients of your signed and/or certified documents.
To create a new, self-signed digital ID: Since it relies on a user's Windows login credentials, Windows Certificate Store is not recommended for environments with shared login credentials.
