How can I sign digitally a document?

Andrés:
Hi,
I want to know a liittle bit more of how can I sign digitally a document using your procedures​. Is this sign legal in United States and European Union, Why ? Thanks in advance,
Andrés
Muhammad Ijaz:
Hi Andres,

Can you please share which types of documents you want to sign? At present, we support signing PDFs only as you can see at http://saaspose.com/docs/display/pdf/sign+%28Controller+Resource%29. Please also share which development platform you are using.

Obviously, a valid certificate can be obtained from a Certificate Authority to sign documents and it is legal in US or EU. Please have a look at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digital_signatures_and_law for more details.

Thank you for your information,

Basically, We need:

1. A procedure to protect a document, if someone change the document,
then the document shouldn't be valid anymore. I Need a system online to
check if the document is valid.
2. A procedure to sign de document digitally (Could be DPF)
3. The procedure to send the document from one place to another place
(email) in a safe way.

Could you help me with that ? How much is it ?

All the procedures has to be done according European and United States
Legislation.

Thanks,
Andrés

Hi Andres,

Thanks for the details. I would like to update you that you can password protect the documents using Saaspose REST API (e.g. doc/docx, xls/xlsx) but it will require password to change the document. The documents will become invalid if you will change a signed document. We can only sign PDF documents at the moment. I’m afraid. We don’t have an online system or editor to check the document is valid or not. For this purpose, I have asked the support team of GroupDocs - http://groupdocs.com/ (our sister company) to share details.

Second, we are planning to launch our new product Saaspose.Email. Once we have sufficient request for this product. After which you will be able to send the document from one place to another place in a safe way. Using GroupDocs, you can send a converted file to your email. I hope this will help you. It would be great if you can share your development platform. It will help us to share exact documentation links with you.

Please let us know in case of further assistance and comments.
