Verifying a digital excerpt
A digitally signed electronic criminal records excerpt is a PDF document, to which an electronic cryptographical seal
(qualified digital signature) has been applied. A digital signature must not be confused with a scanned signature made by hand on a document!
A qualified digital signature is a secure proof of the origin, the validity and the integrity of a digitally signed electronic document
. Integrity means that it is easily visible if an electronic document has been modified after being signed.
