Abstract

To a lawyer, two issues stand out as critical impediments to the widespread acceptance of digital signatures in electronic commerce: the unresolved nature of liability issues and the looming uncertainty about the nature of the public key infrastructure. These issues are so closely related as to be almost intertwined.

JEL Classification: digital signatures, cryptography, e-commerce, electronic commerce, public key, cyberlaw
