Chapter 13. Reviewing and Sharing Documents > Adding a Digital Signature

Adding a Digital Signature

Word uses Microsoft Authenticode technology to help you protect your Office documents and macros by using a digital signature, or digital ID. A digital ID protects the sender's identity. It contains a private key, which stays on the sender's computer, and a digital certificate that contains a public key. The certificate is sent with digitally signed documents and it contains the key to decipher messages from the sender. Before you can add a digital signature to a document, you need to get a certificate. You can get a digital signature and more information on security options from microsoft at: http://office.microsoft.com.
