What is electronic notarization (eNotarization):

A notarized transaction in which documents are notarized electronically. Primarily seen in two forms: An in-person eNotary transaction, where the notary and signer are present in the same location, the notary identifies the signer face-to-face, and the signer executes documents with an eSignature; or a remote online notarization (RON), where the notary and signer are located in different places, but communicate via real-time, audio/visual (A/V) communication technology, and the signer effects an eSignature.
