Recently there has been an increase of fake news which makes it so that people have a more difficult time of understanding if the article that they are reading is real or not. In addition, it is significantly easier for people to fabricate an article and pose it as if it was created by another person. Our solution to these problems is to create a system which will allow authors to sign their documents and publish them with a generated signature. This signature will allow readers to see if the article has not been tampered with as well as find out who the author of the article is by checking if the name given by the signature matches the author’s name.
