To sign an existing approval signature field in a PDF Document:
doc = PDFDoc.new(docpath); # Retrieve the unsigned approval signature field. found_approval_field = doc.GetField(approval_field_name); approval_digsig_field = DigitalSignatureField.new(found_approval_field); # (OPTIONAL) Add more information to the signature dictionary. approval_digsig_field.SetLocation('Vancouver, BC'); approval_digsig_field.SetReason('Document approval.'); approval_digsig_field.SetContactInfo('www.pdftron.com'); # (OPTIONAL) Add an appearance to the signature field. img = Image.Create(doc.GetSDFDoc, appearance_img_path); found_approval_signature_widget = SignatureWidget.new(found_approval_field.GetSDFObj()); found_approval_signature_widget.CreateSignatureAppearance(img); # Prepare the signature and signature handler for signing. approval_digsig_field.SignOnNextSave(private_key_file_path, keyfile_password); # The actual approval signing will be done during the following incremental save operation. doc.Save(outpath, SDFDoc::E_incremental);
Digitally sign PDF files
Full code sample which demonstrates using the digital signature API to digitally sign and/or certify PDF documents.
The Apryse SDK enables approval signatures in PDF documents using a Digital Certificate, in accordance with the latest PDF specification. By leveraging public key infrastructure (PKI) technology, with a certificate issued by a trusted certificate authority (CA), a signer can use a certificate-based digital ID to guarantee the authenticity of a signature. Placement of a digital signature using a certificate can also guarantee that a document was not modified since the signature was placed, ensuring the authenticity of the document.
Above is an example of a document containing a certified signature, guaranteed by a certificate generated by Apryse.com.
