XMLSigner Module

Properties   Methods   Events   Configuration Settings   Errors  

The XMLSigner component provides a simple interface for digitally signing XML data according to the XML-Signature Syntax and Processing specification.




To sign the data, you need to specify the data to be signed using the References property, then select the signature type and signature method type (signature or MAC).

Set the path to the file to be signed via the InputFile. Signed data will be saved in the OutputFile. Finally, call the Sign method to generate a signature and save signed data. It is possible to generate a signature remotely: use SignExternal method to do this.

Asynchronous signing is also supported. Call SignAsyncBegin to generate a signature and save the generated XML-DSIG without signature value into the document. To complete the signing, call SignAsyncEnd.

XMLSigner only performs basic signing of XML documents. For richer features, such as XAdES and/or chain validation, please see the XAdESSigner class
