This specification recommends the use of W3C Digital Signatures or JSON Digital Signatures for digital signatures. Resources can be signed using the Provenance resource to carry a detached digital signature . The Signature datatype is available to support various signature types including non-repudiation purposes. Further details on creation and validation of Signatures are defined.
Neither of these definitions prohibits policies that accept the use of other ways of using digital signatures or scanned wet signatures.
Trial-Use Note: The use of signatures with RESTful interfaces is a poorly understood area, and we would welcome reports of implementation experience. See discussion on use of Digital Signature in FHIR
