Let us discuss about the benefits of USB Tokens. By the overall view, we can say it is highly portable, Simple to Use, Flexible in nature, and Easy implementation.

How it is work?
Digital signature holds some specific numeric value to avoid contamination in the message. The numeric value is a sequence of characters. At the time of genuine data is assigns with the hash value, a concerned hash algorithm is run.
Let us take an example.
The sender sends two keys, Public and Private Keys. He keeps the private key with him itself, and send the public key to the receivers.
The sender select the files which is need to be signed. Then by using some mathematical algorithms, the hash value is calculate by sender’s PC. And then the hash value is encrypt with sender’s private key to create a DSC. Then it revert to receiver, and he do some of the checks.
The checks includes,
Decrypting Digital Signature using Sender’s Public Key.
Comparing the hash value from the received file with the decrypted hash message.
If the result found any similarities, then the value is considered as tampering of message.
