Sign with a PKCS#7 Signature

The PDF Document API supports PKCS#7 signatures. The Pkcs7Signer class represents this signature type. You can create a Pkcs7SignerBase descendant to use custom PKCS#7 signature implementation.

The signature form field’s name and bounds are determined automatically. Use the PdfSignatureFieldInfo object to specify information about the signature form field’s name, bounds and rotation angle.

The code sample below shows how to create and sign a new signature form field:

//Load a document to be signed
using (var signer = new PdfDocumentSigner("SignedDocument.pdf"))
{
    //Specify the name and location of the signature field
    var description = new PdfSignatureFieldInfo(1);
    description.Name = "SignatureField";
    description.SignatureBounds = new PdfRectangle(10, 10, 150, 150);

    //Create a PKCS#7 signature
    Pkcs7Signer signature = new Pkcs7Signer("Signing Documents//testcert.pfx", "123", HashAlgorithmType.SHA256);

    //Apply a signature to a new form field
    var signatureBuilder = new PdfSignatureBuilder(signature, description);

    //Specify the signature's image and signer information
    signatureBuilder.SetImageData(System.IO.File.ReadAllBytes("Signing Documents//Signature.jpg"));
    signatureBuilder.Location = "USA";
    signatureBuilder.Name = "Jane Cooper";

    //Sign and save the document
    signer.SaveDocument("out2.pdf", signatureBuilder);
}
