We often get asked how the digital signatures produced by SigningHub are different from DocuSign. Although at a basic level the document signing services may seem similar, there are significant differences when you take apart the e-signatures and analyse the security mechanisms being employed.
As part of our analysis we uploaded and signed the same document in both services and compared the results side-by-side using the independent and ubiquitous Adobe® Reader® for signature verification.
We analysed the following aspects:
- Document Format: Is the document converted to a secure format before signing?
- E-Signature Appearance: What options are available for the user making their e-signature mark on the document?
- Digital Signature Strength: How is the document locked after signing so that no further changes can be made, how is the user’s identity linked to the document and what level of non-repudiation is achieved through the signed document?
- Long-term Verifiability: Can the user’s signature be verified in the long-term?
