Digital Signature Standard (DSS)
BOOZ-ALLEN AND HAMILTON INC MCLEAN VA
Pagination or Media Count:
This standard specifies a suite of algorithms, which can be used to generate a digital signature. Digital signatures are used to detect unauthorized modifications to data and to authenticate the identity of the signatory. In addition, the recipient of signed data can use a digital signature in proving to a third party that the signature was in fact generated by the signatory. This is known as nonrepudiation since the signatory cannot, at a later time, repudiate the signature.
