Digital Certificate is used to verify the trust of a website whereas Digital Signature is used to verify a document.

In digital signature, the document is encrypted from the sending end and decrypted from the receiving end using asymmetric keys. Whereas Digital Certificate is issued by a Trusted Agency known as CA, for this it follows these steps – Key Generation, Registration, Verification and Creation etc.

Digital Signature provides Authentication, Non Repudiation and Integrity while Digital Certificate provides Authentication and Security.
