Import Digital ID
Import the Digital ID into Adobe Acrobat
I'm using Adobe Acrobat 6 in my examples, the fully licensed version. If you are using a 3rd party pdf writer, you may not have all the options available.
Select > Advanced > Manage Digital IDs > My Digital ID...
Select the Digital ID and click Add...
Note: This option reads the Microsoft Certificate Store. You could also use the file from before.
Click on Settings...
select Always use this Digital ID and Use this Digital ID for: Signing documents.
Don't use the Encryption option.
Click OK and you will notice a pen on the ID. This indicates that this certificate will be used for signing.
Now we can add a digital signature to pdf documents. When we create the document with Adobe Acrobat. Click on > Sign > Sign this document and follow the prompts. You have several options to add valuable information to the signature.
|Review my sample document here and verify the signature.|
There is an option to hide the signature.
This document was signed a few years ago and the signature expired.
Even so you are getting a notification, the signature still confirms that the document HAS NOT been modified.
