    Forging Digital Signatures

    altonc9484122 Level 1

      I am using Adobe Acrobat X Pro with Windows 7. I know I can create a digital ID using someone's name and sign off using his digital signature. Can forging digital signatures be avoided and is there a security measure in place? Let's say I need digital signature from Person A, I can create a digital ID of person A by doing following in Adobe Acrobat:

       

      Tools>More Sign & Certify>Security Settings>Digital IDs>Add ID

       

      Follow the dialog box prompts to create a digital ID for 'Person A'.

       

      Person A digital ID can be created. And now I am signing using Person A digital signature instead of Person A. How can forged signatures be avoided?

       

      Answer is much appreciated.

       

      Thanks!
