When e-filing for a deceased parent, whose ID/DOB/AGI do I use for the signature?

I would like to e-file my deceased mother's taxes for 2022. The IRS says that I should sign the forms as her personal representative. I'm not sure how to do that electronically. What of the following is part of the electronic signature and therefore should be my information instead of my mothers? Do I use her AGI from last year? I can create a pin for this year, but do I use her date of birth or mine since I am the signer? Is entering the drivers license number part of the signature and thus I enter mine or should I enter hers?
