Digital Signature Certificate (DSC) rules are a set of guidelines and regulations that govern the issuance, usage, and management of digital signature certificates. These rules are typically established by the relevant regulatory authorities or government agencies in each jurisdiction. The purpose of these rules is to ensure the integrity, security, and legal validity of digital signatures used in electronic transactions. They define the requirements for Certifying Authorities (CAs) responsible for issuing DSCs, specify the verification and validation processes for applicants, outline the procedures for revoking certificates, and establish the standards for the storage and management of digital signatures. Adhering to these rules helps maintain the trust and reliability of digital signatures, ensuring their acceptance and legal validity in various electronic transactions.
