An updated version of the article we wrote 8 years ago, exploring how to create digital signatures with our API that are automatically approved by Acrobat: this time, with an EU Identity card
Not all digital signatures are created equal. Our PDF Library has been able to digitally sign documents for years, but digitally signing a file with a key that's trusted by Acrobat is a little trickier, and requires hardware. Here, we show you how to do it.
Most people when they think of protecting a PDF, think of a password. However this isn't the only way to do it. Both Acrobat and our PDF viewer allow a PDF to be decrypted using a private key which is specific to a user. In this article we show you how to create a key, encrypt a document for that key and then decrypt it again.
