Sign pdf using pcsk


With Apose, is it possible to digitally sign a PDF document using a pcsk11 key?


Hi Jose,

Thanks for contacting support.

I am afraid the requested feature to sign PDF file using PKCS11 key is not supported but for the sake of implementation, I have logged this
requirement in our issue tracking system under New Features list as PDFNEWNET-37510.
We will further investigate this requirement in details and will keep you
updated on the status of a correction.

We apologize for your inconvenience.

PS, currently you can sign PDF file using PKCS1, PKCS7 and PKCS7Detached keys.


Thanks for the reply

Do you guys have a timetable for this feature?


Hi Jose,

As we recently have logged this requirement, so development team requires little time to investigate and figure out
the solution for this requirement. Also please note that implementation of any new feature depends upon schedule of development team and number of requests from different users.

Nevertheless, as soon as we have made some definite progress towards the implementation of this feature, we will update you within this forum thread.

Your patience and comprehension is greatly appreciated in this regard.

Hi All,

As this is an old topic and I can not find a proper way on how to sign a with hardware token; can someone point me in the right direction for this?
Is it possible now in v21.11 ?

Note: looking for a solution in Java
