Introduction to Digital Signatures - Part One

Daryl S. Banks, PSM

By the completion of this course, the student will be able to electronically sign any CAD file with his or her own Digital ID, and establish a drawing delivery policy at their company. Furthermore, the student will learn how to purchase, install, and sign electronic documents such as: Microsoft Word, Excel, Adobe PDF, and most importantly CAD drawing files. The goal is to understand and meet government recommended guidelines for distributing electronic documents provided by intuitions like National Institutes of Standards and Testing (NIST) and the National Security Agency (NSA) along with the Nationally recognized standards as it applies to Digital Signatures.

Digital Signatures provide the following benefits:

  • Recipients of digitally signed drawings can be sure that the organizations or individuals who sent the drawings are trustworthy.
  • A Digital Signature guarantees that a drawing's content and properties have not changed since the drawing was digitally signed.
  • With a third-party Digital ID, a signed file cannot be rejected as invalid. The signer of a file cannot reject the file later by claiming the signature was copied.

  • This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
