  • Validating digital signatures. NEED HELP ASAP!

    I emailed a form to an employee, who created and applied a digital signature to it.  The form was emailed back to me and I received the message 'At least 1 signature requires validating/validation."  I go through the steps to trusting and validating, yet when I reopen the document after saving it, I keep getting the same message to validate.
    Please help!

  • Digital Signatures Help Requested

    I looked through the forums and there was one thread not too long ago that talked about digital signatures but didn't seem to focus on this particular problem, so I figured I'd start a new one hoping someone would have some advice.
    We receive a document that is digitally signed by our client. We view the PDF in the full version of Acrobat and have added these users as Trusted Users (in managed trusted identities).
    We Verify the Signatures that were added to the document and see the digital signatures at the bottom of the document but there's one thing that's not showing up and that's the actual "signature" or "signed signature" of the person. We only see a typed out version of their name.
    We've spoken to our client and they maintain that we should be viewing the "signed signature" and we need to figure it out.
    When I check the Signature Properties, it tells me that their signatures were created using "Entrust.PPKEF". Could this be the problem?
    As much as I'm reading up on Digital Signatures, it's my belief that we don't need to purchase any other software in order to view these properly. Am I mistaken.
    Any help would sure be appreciated.

    Hi Paul,
    Are you expecting a "wet ink" type of signature? That is, an image in the signature field that is a copy of a signature someone created with pen and paper? If that's what you really need then maybe a digital signature workflow is not what you should require from your client. However, in many respects a digital signature (at least in the electronic world) is a much more powerful tool then a wet ink facsimile.
    In this day and age, anyone could grab an image of a wet ink signature, crop it and use it apply it to a document as if they were the original signer. In others words, in the electronic world a wet ink signature is not very secure. However, a digital signature cryptographically binds the signer to the document. As long as the digital ID used to create the digital signature comes from a trusted third party (i.e. a certificate authority that vettes the identity of the individual before they issue the digital ID) then you are get two things from the digital signature. One is document integrity (you will know if the document has been altered post signing), and the other is non-repudiation (the signer cannot deny that they were the person that applied the digital signature). If you are accepting digital IDs (it's the "manage trusted identities" thing you mentioned) issued by a certificate authority that does not vette the identity of the signer then you have to be a bit more leery of trusting the signer.
    I don't know if the Entrust signature method has the ability to add a custome appearance that includes the wet ink facsimile, but if it does, your client could create a digital signature whose appearance looks like a wet ink signature. However, the bottom line is the lack of a wet ink  facsimile is not a cause of concern when it comes to digital signatures  in PDF files.

  • Digital signature help

    I have a created a PDF in Acrobat 8.0 that requires multiple digital signatures. I am emailing the file to the people and asking for their digital signature.  When I try to save the file with Person1's signature to a file with Person's2 digital signature, it deletes Person's1 signature and inserts Person2's signature. How can I save the file so both signatures are retained?
    I need help ASAP. It is driving me crazy.

    Hi,
    You can't merge signed files because it modifies the PDF layer which would break the signature. One of the limitations of digital signatures is they are serial operations, that is one signature follows the previous signature. You cannot do this in parallel and merger the contents into one file. You could put the multiple files into a single Package (later renamed to Portfolio in Acrobat 9) file, but each signed copy would still be a stand alone file attachment within the Package.
    The bottom line is, if you really need all of the different digital signatures in the same PDF file you need to send it to the first recipient, have them sign it, and then forward the file to the next recipient (or back to you).

  • My computer will not let me download because it says there is no digital signature I need this for a college course how can i download it?

    I am taking a web design class and my instructor wishes us all to use the same browser. She has provided a link in her syllabus and it does go to the download site for Firefox. However, as I am running the download my computer pops up with "there is no digital signature" and "this file is corrupt" and will not download it. What to do?

    Make sure that you do not run the file directly, but save the file to the Desktop and start the installation via a double-click.<br />
    You may need to unlock the file via the right-click context menu: Properties > Security

  • Adobe digital editions (help needed asap)

    I keep getting an error message saying adobe digital editions 2.0 has stopped working, How do i fix

    Depends why it stopped working.  You could try uninstall and reinstall.
    Unfortunately, ADE2.0/2.0.1 is a terrible program riddled with bugs,
    unless you need a feature it does not have the best solution is to install 1.7.2.
    There are lots of bugs in ADE2.0 (and 2.0.1).  Try replacing ADE2.0 with the older but more reliable v1.7.2.
    (You can have them both installed at once if you like.)
    Version 1.7.2, it is a little difficult to find, available on Adobe site for Windows and for Mac.
    http://helpx.adobe.com/digital-editions/kb/cant-install-digital-editions.html
    The forum software is sometimes corrupting the link above.  There shouldn't be a blank in 'editio ns.html'.  The following redirects to the same page: http://tinyurl.com/diged172
    Some people have found ADE trying to upgrade automatically. 
    It appears (not 100% sure) that if you install ADE2.0 as a new install (not as an upgrade) that your 1.7.2 will continue to run.
    Probably best to say no if 2.0.x installation asks if you want to migrate your library.

  • How to Create a PDF Document and apply Digital Signature in C# using the Adobe SDK?

    Hi Everybody!
    I have to do two distinct tasks here:
    1) How can I create a PDF document using the Adobe SDK in my .NET Applications(C# - 2.0)?
    I just need a basic sample to create a document with a simple text, for example. I did not find any useful information in the adobe documentation. I have the Acrobat Professional 8.0 in my computer, but it's very dificult to work whith de Acrobat.dll and .NET with a poor documentaion.
    2)How can I apply digital signature in a existent pdf document?
    I need to sign documents using the SDK, just a basic sample in c# would be helpful to start!
    Anybody could help?
    Thank in advance!

    Leonard Rosenthol or anybody that can help, sorry to insist.
    I will explain better my problem:
    I have an ASP.NET WebPAge (C# - 2.0). In this page, the user make a request. The request should generate a PDF document with the informations of the request and with a field to add a digital signature. The document created will be send to a approver that will confirm the approval applying his digital signature (I need to do too, a webpage where the approver open the page, choose the pdf document, and sign, just selecting his own certificate and clicking in the button SIGN... but this is another problem).
    That's the reason that I have to create a PDF document. If I create a WORD or HTML document, and then convert to PDF, how can I add a field to digital signature in this pdf document?
    Is there any solution using Acrobat SDK?
    Thank you very much!

  • MS Visual Basic for Applications will not apply digital signatures

    When using Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications within any office application (Excel in this case), i cannot see the certificate store when creating digital certificates. It appears to be localised to the operating system but can't seem to find the issue.
    To create the digital signature within Excel i normally go to Developer > Visual Basic > Tools > Digital Signature.  When i select 'Choose', the certificates are not presented.
    Has anyone experienced this?
    Thanks in advance.

    Hi,
    As far as I know, If we want to use the digital signatures, we need to Digital Certificate for VBA Projects tool which a set of extra tools. I recommend we repair/reinstall the tool with a backup install CD.
    Then, we may follow the below links to reset a digital signatures and add the digital signatures in the trust list(Location: File>Option>Trust center.) to test if it is helpful:

  • Checking Digital Signatures

    I have a form with a number of digital signatures on.
    When a user clicks on one digital signature, I need to be able to check the status of the other signatures so I can determine which fields on the form should be locked down. I.E. If signature1 and signature2 are signed then I want to lock down TextField1, where if signature1 and signature3 are signed I wasnt to lock down TextField2.
    Does anyone have some code to check for the signing of a dig sig and can anyone indicate how I might achieve the above please? I tried some other code from the forum but it doesn't seem to work.
    Thanks

  • Adobe Reader Digital Signature Plugin

    Hello All,
    We had developed a adobe plugin for digital signature through smart card. The plugin works fine for Adobe Professional. I would like to know the procedure how to make it work for Adobe Reader. I found a URL http://www.adobe.com/devnet/reader/ikla.html which says to buy a license. I'm confused over DRM and non-DRM agreement.
    To make it clear, our company shall be distributing the smart card and the plugin in the enterprise market for digital signatures that need to work with both Adobe Professional and Adobe Reader. Our customers shall be probably using Adobe reader.
    Can any one let me know the procedure to make reader plugin?

    Hi Gatis,

    http://learn.adobe.com/wiki/download/attachments/52658564/acrobat_reader_security_9x.pdf?v ersion=1
    Once you get the file open look at section 5.3.4.4
    The folder path has to exist, but Acrobat will create the file if it's missing. For example, if you want to save the file to C:\LogFile\digSigLog.txt the folder LogFile would have to exist on the C drive, but the log file itself will get created if it's not there already.
    When you type in the file path and name in the Edit Binary Value dialog in regedit, make sure you null terminate the string by typing a zero at the end of the hex data on the left side of the dialog. It will look like a dot on the right side, but it's not really a dot (a dot is 2E in hex).

  • Need help making digital signature field read only if required fields are null

    Using Adobe LiveCycle Designer, I have a digital signature field.  I want to prevent users from being able to digitally sign the pdf if any required fields in the pdf are null or blank.  I'm a newbie to scripting so any detailed help would be greatly appreciated.  The required fields in the pdf include radio buttons, check boxes, text field, etc.  I appreciate any help anyone can provide.
    Thanks

    Exactly how you check a field for being empty depends on what type of field it is. For text fields, you should get the field's value as a string and compare it to an empty string, something like:
    var val = getField("Text1").valueAsString;
    if (val) {
        app.alert("Field is not empty");
    If there is a default value that needs to be changed, you would compare to the default value:
    var f = getField("Text1");
    var val = f.valueAsString;
    if (val !== f.defaultValue) {
        app.alert("Field value is OK");
    For check boxes and radio buttons, you'd compare to the string "Off", which means none in the group is selected.
    For dropdowns (combo boxes) and list boxes, there is normally one value selected, so you would have to get the value and check against the default value (or something else) to see if the field is properly filled in.
    You could place the script there, but I usually use a separate button that I encourage the user to click in order to check the field. The problem with using the Will Save event is you can't prevent the save from happening.
    The script can loop through all of the fields (and test all required ones), or you could set up an array of field names to check.
