How to get pdf signature certificate thumbprint

Aspose document " Working with Signature in PDF File|Aspose.PDF for Java" talks about getting thumbprint from a pdf digital certificate.

However I dont see getSignature() or extractCertificate() to get thumprint value from the cert. How can we get thubprint using java.


In case you are using old version of Aspose.PDF, we suggest you please upgrade to the latest version of Aspose.PDF for Java 22.7.

You can find these properties in PdfFileSignature class.

I was using 22.7.1 and used java-22.7 as well, however i dont see any specific way to just get the cert thumbprint.

System.out.println(s.getSignature().getAuthority());–> like this i dont see thumbprint.

Also extractCertificate extract the whole cert, I just need thumbprint out of it.
