The internet expansion, the electronic commerce, the electronic transactions and the transmission of confidential data via open networks are aspects of the current information society. Internet creates new opportunities and possibilities critical for the improvement of the competitiveness of the economy. The development of electronic transactions requires protection mechanisms of the inviolable personal secrecy of dealing users. Mechanisms of safety in the transactions and in the exchanges of data are necessary to be put in place. The safety in the transactions depends to a great extent from the signature, that is to say the identity dealing users. Since 1996, the creation of international legal frame for the use of electronic signatures has been started. In 1999 the Directive 1999/93/EK with regard to a Community frame for the electronic signatures, placed the bases of regulating frame of electronic signatures in the European Union. Afterwards Presidential Decree 150/2001, adaptation in the Directive of 99/93/[EK] European Parliament and Council with regard to the Community frame for electronic signatures, places the lawful frame and harmonises Greek with the European right in the question of electronic signatures. The aim of this dissertation is to present the significance of the electronic (digital) signature, the mechanism of its application, the relative digital certificates as well as the relative institutional frame. Finally, a case study is presented concerning the publication and the use of digital certificates.
