Digital Signature Schemes in Practice

Learn about the practical aspects of digital signature schemes and how to ensure security while using them.

This section will consider practical issues relating to digital signature schemes in general rather than to any particular scheme.

Security of digital signature schemes

We assume that we’re using a respected digital signature scheme and the platform on which the digital signature scheme is being used is ‘trustworthy.’ There are three cryptographic components of a digital signature scheme that an attacker could exploit.
