I've question about signing especially for signing router-descriptor;

Is the router "signing-key" using to prepare a router's signature with
digest algorithm? If so then does an OR sign it's router descriptor with
it's signature? Finally can we say right for below sequence?

"signing-key" ---- digest algorithm --- > "router-signature"
initial "router-descriptor" ----- sign with "router-signature" --- > signed

After that how a directory authority verify whether the router descriptor is

Thanks in advance.
