Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference PaperResearchpeer-review

Abstract

The advent of the Internet saw technological innovations such as electronic signatures, in particular digital signatures, as an electronic equivalent to manuscript signatures in the online environment. However, the use of this technology is still insignificant. The aim of this paper is to review the various studies that have explored the technical and legal issues associated with electronic signatures and digital signatures with an objective to provide insights on their lack of acceptance.
