Owing to the rapid advances in e-business, there is an increasing need for online security and authentication. Many advanced technologies are developing to serve internet authentication. One of the main issues in e-business operations is the need to replace the hand-written signature with the digital signature.

During online communication, digital signature enables organizations to authenticate and assure the client's identity and records. Digital signatures offer highly precious possibilities for organizations to enter into noncommercial contracts. For example, if the law recognizes digital signatures as valid signatures, an e-mailed job offer would be legal, just as if it were sent in hardcopy and signed by the employer.

Digital signatures authenticate electronic documents the same way as the printed handwritten signatures verify documents. The digital signature market growth is driven by the growing use of digital signatures to eliminate fraud, encourage technological innovations, and improve data integrity, scalability, and transparency.

However, some organizations are not fully aware of the advantages of digital signature solutions, which may hamper the market growth. Controlled and seamless workflow, improved operational efficiency, enhanced end-to-end customer experience, rising investments in electronic documents by governments and enterprises and improved security are the major factors driving the market growth.

"Increasing adoption of cloud-based digital signature solutions is contributing to the growth of the global digital signature market"

A cloud-based digital signature can be viewed as a model for secure, easy, on-demand network access to safety infrastructure performing digital signature cryptographic activities. Cloud-based e-signature solutions are expected to be the most significant deployment segment as they decrease the e-signature execution operating costs.

The primary difference between a conventional digital signature scheme and a cloud-based system is that while the first one worked in a personal computer near setting and dedicated plug-in devices (microchip card and card reader), the cloud-based system includes network information exchange between the signer and signing-enabled cloud setting.
