Under a valid contract I meant what Alice in step 3 produces, which
includes the text of the contract C and the pair of visual cryptography
(X, Y) signed by both Alice and Bob, with (X, Y) exactly reproducing C.
Does that sufficiently cover your "how to test for it"? Or do you mean
anything in connection with the digital signatures of Alice and Bob?
(I assume that the signatures are properly done by them.)
