Scanned Handwritten Signatures – Fodder for Forgery!

Date: Friday 10 July, 2020 | 2:00 pm - 4:30 pm
Venue: Webinar

How easy is it to copy and paste a hand-written signature into another document?

In times of social distancing, how do we sign contracts and other documents? If you send a digital image of your hand-written signature (say via email), that can easily be copied and pasted to some other document that you are completely unaware of! In other words, digital images of hand-written signatures can be easily “forged”. Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to sign a digital document in some other way that is unforgeable?

Now consider this. Whenever we are browsing the internet and see a green padlock near the address bar, it assures us that the communication through that website is secure. The technology behind that padlock is digital signatures and certificates and the science is cryptology. In this webinar, we will look at practical ways to use the same technology and the science behind browser padlocks to replace hand-written signatures.

This 2 and a half hour webinar will include a 30 minute Q&A, followed up by a 30 minute networking session where delegates will be able to dive deeper into the topics raised.

Hosted by Dr Sanjay Bhattacherjee from the Kent School of Computing.

This is part of the business and innovation gateway teams Covid-19 Business Recovery Response Webinar Series.
