Do digital signatures provide confidentiality?

It’s a common misconception that digital signatures are only about authenticity and integrity; however, they do not inherently provide confidentiality. Let’s break this down a bit.

Digital signatures are an essential tool in ensuring the authenticity of a document, confirming that it was indeed signed by the person it claims to be from and that it hasn’t been tampered with during transmission. While these are critical aspects of secure digital communications, they do not encompass confidentiality. Confidentiality, in the context of information security, refers to protecting information from being accessed by unauthorized parties.

However, the confidentiality of a digitally signed document can be ensured by additional security measures such as encryption. Encryption converts data into a coded form, making it unreadable to anyone who doesn’t have the decryption key. When you combine digital signatures with encryption, you get both the authenticity from the digital signature and the confidentiality from the encryption.
