An email message that includes a digital signature attached to it provides another layer of security by giving assurance to the recipient that you personally signed the contents of the message and not an imposter. A digital signature is a mathematical scheme for validating the authenticity of digital messages or documents.

A valid digital signature provides a recipient reason to believe that the message was created by a known sender (authentication), that the message was not modified in transit (integrity), and that the sender can’t deny having sent the message (non-repudiation). The digital signature originates from the user’s digital ID and it includes the user’s certificate and public key.

That digital ID serves as the user’s unique digital mark and signals the recipient that the content of the message has not been altered or modified in transit. The digital signature is the standard element of the majority of cryptographic protocol suites and is commonly used for software distribution, contract management software, financial transactions, and in other cases where the detection of tampering or forgery is vital.

To add a digital signature in Microsoft Office Outlook, in the message, go to “Options” tab then click “Sign Message” in the “Permission” group. Continue composing your message then send it. If you don’t see “Sign Message”, you probably don’t have a digital ID configured to digitally sign messages. To install a digital signature, go to “File”, “Options” then “Trust Center”.

In “Microsoft Outlook Trust Center”, click “Trust Center Settings” then select “Email Security”. Click “Import/Export” to import a digital ID from a file or click “Get digital IDs” to find a list of services that issue digital IDs for use.
