Digital Signatures

Digital signatures can be added to a PDF document using PdfDigitalSignatureElement objects. Adding a digital signature requires a PKCS#12 certificate (provided as a .pfx or a .p12 file).

Sample Code

The following sample code shows how to add a digital signature to a pdf document using Select.Pdf Library for .NET.

// create a new pdf document
PdfDocument doc = new PdfDocument();

// add a new page to the document
PdfPage page = doc.AddPage();

// get image path 
// the image will be used to display the digital signature over it
string imgFile = Server.MapPath("~/files/logo.png");

// get certificate path
string certFile = Server.MapPath("~/files/selectpdf.pfx");

// define a rendering result object
PdfRenderingResult result;

// create image element from file path 
PdfImageElement img = new PdfImageElement(0, 0, imgFile);
result = page.Add(img);

// get the #PKCS12 certificate from file
PdfDigitalCertificatesCollection certificates = 
    PdfDigitalCertificatesStore.GetCertificates(certFile, "selectpdf");
PdfDigitalCertificate certificate = certificates[0];

// create the digital signature object
PdfDigitalSignatureElement signature = 
    new PdfDigitalSignatureElement(result.PdfPageLastRectangle, certificate);
signature.Reason = "SelectPdf";
signature.ContactInfo = "SelectPdf";
signature.Location = "SelectPdf";

// save pdf document
doc.Save(Response, false, "Sample.pdf");

// close pdf document
