The SignedData object provides properties and methods to establish the content to be signed with a digital signature, to sign or cosign data digitally, and to verify the digital signature of signed data. The signed message is in PKCS #7 format.
A data signature, if verified, proves the association between a signer and data and shows that the data was not changed in any way after the signature was created.
