Electronic Seal Definition and Examples

Understanding Electronic Seal for e-Signing

An Electronic Seal serves a similar function to a traditional corporate stamp or seal but in the digital space. It is used to guarantee the origin and integrity of an electronic document. Unlike a digital signature that is linked to an individual, an electronic seal is typically bound to a company or legal entity.

Key Features of Electronic Seals

  1. Authentication: Ensures that the document originated from the stated entity.
  2. Integrity: Verifies that the document has not been altered in any way since the seal was applied.
  3. Non-repudiation: Offers proof that the document was indeed sealed by the issuing entity.

Examples of Use

  • Business Agreements: Corporations often use electronic seals when sending contracts, ensuring the recipient knows the document comes from an authorized source.
  • Official Reports: Government entities and large organizations use electronic seals to confirm that online reports or digital notices are legitimate.
  • Invoices: Many companies now use electronic seals on invoices to emphasize authenticity and reduce the risk of fraud.
