Electronic Signature

Post by kwaltman » Thu Nov 29, 2018 1:09 am

Is there a method in the Vintasoft PDF API to apply an Electronic Signature? This is not a Digital Signature, but rather an Electronic signature which can be a graphic or text, and then have some supporting identification information that is embedded in the Signature object. Electronic signature are becoming way more accepted and preferred over Digital Sigs which require a Certificate.

Adobe is using these as their default now.

If there is not specifically an object for this. Is there a way of creating something like that within the API?

Hello Kevin,

Current version of SDK does not support electonic signatures. We analyzed information about electronic signatures in PDF 2.0 specification and we have found that necessary functionality can be implemented qickly.

Could you send me a test PDF document with electonic signature for analysis? If yes, please send document to support@vintasoft.com.

Best regards, Alexander
