What is a Document Signing Certificate USB Token?

A document signing certificate USB token is a portable device that securely stores digital certificates used for document signing. It serves as a hardware-based key, providing enhanced security for signing electronic documents. This USB token contains cryptographic keys and certificates, ensuring the integrity, authenticity, and non-repudiation of digitally signed documents.

How Does a Document Signing Certificate USB Token Work?

From a technical standpoint, a document signing certificate USB token uses public key infrastructure (PKI) technology . The USB token holds a private key that remains securely stored within the device. When a user wants to sign a document, the private key is used to create a digital signature. This signature, along with the corresponding public key, verifies the authenticity and integrity of the signed document.

The USB token's built-in security features protect against unauthorized access and tampering. The private key remains inaccessible to the user or any external entities, preventing the risk of key compromise. Furthermore, the USB token can be password-protected, adding an additional layer of security to the digital certificate stored within.
