Locking Digital Signature

Specs: Windows XP
We are currently using Word 2007, we are getting the digital signature for our documents, but we would like to have each signature locked with a password so that only the person that got the password can add it to the document. What are our option? Can we lock the signature itself or do we need to lock the folder/file in which we are storing the signature in? If so what are the steps for my probleam? Is this even do-able?

Thank you for all your help!

You are getting "A" Digital Signature? I think you may be confused by what exactly a Digital Signature is. Digital Signatures are user specific, which means that each user that wants to digitally sign information must have his/her own Private key. Along with that is the password that each user enters in order to Digitally sign emails/documents, etc.

Or, might you be referring to an Electronic Signature, which is another ball of wax. :)
A Public Key is then needed in order for others to view that Digitally signed information.

I think you need to do some research on Digital (Identity) Signatures/Certificates and Encryption Certificates, which work together with a Digital Signature, but are a separate entity.
