Hi,

I am using Alfresco 5.2 and i have installed the pdf toolkit using,

   pdf-toolkit-repo-1.4.0.amp

When i am trying to add signature to a pdf document, it asks following properties which i can't understand.

Private key

  • Alias
  • Key type
  • Key store password
  • password

If someone can, please help me. (screen shot is also attached).

Hi anuradha madhushani

For adding digital signature to a document,you may need to create keystore.p12/certificate file 

Try this command to create keystore file 

keytool -genkey -keyalg RSA -alias <your-alias-name> -keystore keystore12.p12 -storetype pkcs12 -storepass <your-store-password> -validity 360 -keysize 2048

Enter your alias and password and create your keystore file.

Configure signature dashlet and upload the keystore file.

You will have to enter the same alias and password while signing the pdf document.

Thanks,
Kalpesh

Hello!
Unfortunately, I still have the same problem. I executed the command you requested, but I did not succeed.
Is it possible to buy support to solve this problem remotely?
Thank you

Re: can't sign pdf using pdf toolkit

Hi Amit - this addon allows you to add a picture of a signature at the end of a PDF, but not sign it using a "certificate" which is what is required for Government submissions etc.

We also tried the signing feature of PDF Toolkit using certificates, but could not get it to work with the Indian Government approved e-mudhra digital signature tokens.

Re: can't sign pdf using pdf toolkit

Hi,

Yaa, you are right. It only allows adding a snap of signature on the end of PDF document. I also have the same requirement to add E-Signature on the documents but no idea how it would be possible in Alfresco and if you have, Please address me.

Kind regards,

Amit Kulhari
