What is a digital signature? Is it legal?expand

The official definition:
A digital signature has the same legal validity as a handwritten signature. A digital signature has associated digital certificates that unequivocally ensure the identity of who signs a digital document. The Portuguese State guarantees certification of digital signatures made with Citizen Card or Mobile Digital Key (CMD).

Are digital signatures and digitalised signatures the same thing?expand

No. Digital signatures have an associated certification and encryption process that guarantees them a legal validity equivalent to in-person signatures. On the other hand, a digitised signature is simply obtaining an image, by means of a camera or other image scanning device, of a person's civil name and handwritten by that person. It cannot be used in place of a digital signature (see What is a digital signature? Is it legal?).

What is identity validation? And biometrics?expand

It is the process of recognizing the identity presented by a person. By presenting an identification document (e.g., Citizen Card) containing one or more biometric data (e.g., face photo) it becomes possible to compare these biometric data with the information obtained at the moment (e.g., using the image obtained by the device's camera together with a relevant trait verification algorithm).
