Digital signatures ensure authenticity of clips. Digital signatures are primarily used to
authenticate videos that are produced in courts as evidence. A digital signature generates a
unique string for the clip using algorithms recommended by the W3C. The World Wide Web
Consortium (W3C) is an international consortium where member organizations, a full‐time
staff, and the public work together to develop Web standards. If the video in the clip is
modified, a verification check for the unique string fails indicating that the content is
tampered. When a clip is saved with the digital signature, a package file with the .PKG
