The JAdESSigner component signs Javascript content electronically.

Syntax

TsbxJAdESSigner

Remarks

JAdESSigner supports a range of digital signature formats over Javascript content, including JSON Web Signatures (JWS) and ETSI JSON Advanced Electronic Signatures (JAdES).

Standards and technologies supported

JAdESSigner can create signatures that match the following standards:

  • Generic JSON Web Signatures (JWS) (RFC7515)
  • JAdES: all profiles are supported (BES, EPES, T, LTV, B-B, B-T, and others) (ETSI TS 119 182-1)
  • Timestamps using external TSAs.
  • All industry-standard cryptographic algorithms (RSA, ECDSA, SHA256-512, and many others).

Configuring the signature spec

JWS and JAdES signatures can come in all sorts of flavours, with the primary factors being the signature format (how exactly the signed data is represented in bytes) and completeness (the extent of the trust information that is included in the signature). You can use the properties of your JAdESSigner object to configure these and other parameters. Typically, the service or software that you need to communicate with will provide you with a list of requirements that your JSON signature needs to satisfy. In some cases, they will also send you an example signature that you may use as a guide.

Typically, you will need to adjust the following categories of settings:

The above are the most important settings from each category; you may need to adjust more specific settings, such as EPES policy parameters (such as PolicyID) or ContentType, to fine-tune your signature.

Signing certificates

JAdESSigner can use certificates residing on different media. Besides generic certificates stored in PFX or PEM files (A1), it can operate with non-exportable certificates residing on hardware media (A3), system stores/keychains, or in the cloud.

Non-exportable certificates can be accessed transparently via a Windows CSP or a PKCS#11 driver, if supplied by the certificate issuer. Proprietary or less interoperable media can be communicated with the external signing feature (see below).

Use CertificateManager and CertificateStorage components to load the signing certificate. Assign the certificate to SigningCertificate property, and optionally provide the remainder of its chain via the SigningChain property.

In the default configuration, JAdESSigner will do its best to collect the trust elements (certificates, CRLs, OCSP responses) required by the chosen signature level automatically. It will use all available sources, including the system stores, the chain validation cache, and the signature itself (when upgrading an existing signature). However, there can be situations where only some (or even none) of the trust elements are available in the public locations. This is particularly the case for internal, experimental, or test PKI environments. In such cases you might need to locate the missing elements manually and provide them to JAdESSigner via the KnownCertificates, KnownCRLs, and KnownOCSPs properties. You can also provide any trust anchors not included in the public Trusted Root directory via the TrustedCertificates collection.

Note: If signing with a non-exportable key (such as residing on a hardware device or in the cloud), please make sure you keep the original CertificateStorage object open until the signing is completed. This is because the storage component provides a 'bridge' to the private key. If the storage is closed prematurely, this bridge is destroyed, and the private key can't be used.

Signing the JSON

Now that you have configured the signature and certificate settings, you can proceed to signing. You can provide the JSON input in one of the following forms: as a file (assign the path to InputFile property), as a stream (assign to InputStream property), as a string (InputString), or as a byte array (assign to InputBytes). Similarly, the output can be collected in one of the same forms, either by passing the destination path or stream via OutputFile and OutputStream respectively, or by reading the resulting document bytes from the OutputBytes or OutputString property after the signing.

Having set up the input and output, call the component's Sign method. This will initiate the signing process. Depending on the settings, the signing may be as straightforward as calculating the document hash and signing it with the private key (e.g. when creating a B-level signature), or it may involve advanced chain validation routines (LT or LTA). During the latter the component contacts a number of external trust information sources (CA, CRL, and OCSP servers) to establish the validity of the signing certificate.

If a TSA server was provided via the TimestampServer property, the component will contact it too to timestamp the new signature.

During the signing JAdESSigner may fire events to let your code know of certain conditions. It may fire TLSCertValidate if one of the HTTP endpoints involved during the operation (which may be a CRL, OCSP, or TSA service) works over TLS and needs its certificate chain to be validated.

External signing and DCAuth

JAdESSigner, like many other components included in the product, supports two methods of signing with external keys. These methods are fully independent of each other: you can choose the one that suits your scenario best.

Synchronous method: ExternalSign

This is a simpler method that basically lets you infiltrate into the signing routine by taking care of the hash signing operation. The component does the rest of the job (hash calculation, preparation of signature objects, CRL/OCSP retrieval).

To initiate this method, call SignExternal instead of Sign. When the hash is ready, it will be passed back to your code with ExternalSign event. Your event handler needs to sign the hash with the private key and return the created signature back to the component - which will embed it into the document.

You don't need your signing certificate to contain an associated private key when using this method. The certificate itself (its public copy) may be needed though, as it is included in the hash calculation.

This method is synchronous, meaning SignExternal provides you the results immediately upon its completion.

Asynchronous method: DCAuth

DCAuth is a SecureBlackbox know-how technology. This protocol was designed to allow sharing of private keys across environments, allowing the signer and the private key to reside on different systems. It works in the following way:

  • The signing party - such as JAdESSigner - initiates the operation using SignAsyncBegin call. This produces two outcomes: a pre-signed content (a JSON body with a blank signature placeholder), and a request state (an object containing a hash that needs to be signed). At this point the JAdESSigner instance can be released, and the process itself terminated (which may be useful when run as part of a web page).
  • The request state is passed to the private key holder party. The private key holder passes the request state to a DCAuth object, which parses the request state, extracts the hash, and signs it. The output of DCAuth processing is another object, response state, which contains the signature. The private key holder then sends the response state back to the signing party.
  • The signing party re-creates the signing controls, and passes the response state, together with the pre-signed content, to the signer's SignAsyncEnd method. SignAsyncEnd extracts the signature from the response state and incorporates it into the pre-signed object, hereby completing the signature.

This method is asynchronous in that sense that, from the signing party's viewpoint, it splits the signing operation into the pre-signing and completion stages which can be performed independently from each other and in different execution contexts. This makes this method particularly helpful for use in web pages and other scenarios where the signing key is not available in real time.

Fine-grained chain validation setup

Chain validation is a sophisticated, multi-faceted procedure that involves a lot of variables. Depending on the configuration of your operating environment, the specifics of the PKI framework being used, and the validation policy you need to follow, you may want to tune up your chain validation parameters so they fit them best. A summary of such parameters is given below.

  • RevocationCheck lets you choose between and/or prioritize revocation origins. OCSP sources are often preferred to CRL because of their real-time capability and the smaller size of validation tokens they produce.
  • OfflineMode is a master switch that stops the component from looking for any validation tokens online. If this property is switched on, the component will only use the KnownCertificates, TrustedCertificates, KnownCRLs, and KnownOCSPs collections to look for the missing validation material.
  • IgnoreChainValidationErrors makes the component ignore any major validation issues it encounters (such us an untrusted chain or missing CRL). This option is handy for debugging and for creating signatures in the environments where the signing certificate is not trusted.
  • KnownCertificates, KnownCRLs, and KnownOCSPs let you provide your own validation material. This may be useful when working in OfflineMode, where the signer has no access to the validation sources, or where the validation material has already been collected.
  • TrustedCertificates lets you provide a list of trust anchors, either as a complement to the system's or as an alternative to it.
  • BlockedCertificates lets you provide a list of blocked/distrusted certificates. Any CA certificate contained in it will be deemed untrusted/invalid.

The following parameters are not directly related to chain validation, but may have an implicit effect on it.

  • Proxy, SocketSettings, and TLSSettings let you tune up the connectivity and TLS options in accordance with local preferences.
  • TLSClientChain lets you provide the client certificate and its chain for TLS client authentication.
  • Subscribe to TLSCertValidate to validate any TLS certificates of the services involved in chain validation.

The results of the chain validation procedure, upon its completion, are published in the following properties:

  • ChainValidationResult contains the primary result of the chain validation routine: valid, valid but untrusted, invalid, or undefined.
  • ChainValidationDetails provides the details of the factors that contributed to the chain validation result, such as an outdated certificate, a missing CRL, or a missing CA certificate.
  • ValidationLog contains the detailed chain validation log. The log can often be very helpful in nailing down various validation issues.

AutoValidateSignatures Property (JAdESSigner Component)

Specifies whether component should validate any present signatures when the JSON opened.

Syntax

property AutoValidateSignatures: Boolean read get_AutoValidateSignatures write set_AutoValidateSignatures;

Default Value

false

Remarks

This setting is switched off by default to speed up JSON processing. Even if the JWS/JAdES signature is loaded with this property set to false, you can validate the signatures manually on a later stage using the Revalidate method.

BlockedCertificates Property (JAdESSigner Component)

The certificates that must be rejected as trust anchors.

Syntax

property BlockedCertificates: TsbxCertificateList read get_BlockedCertificates write set_BlockedCertificates;

Remarks

Use this property to provide a list of compromised or blocked certificates. Any chain containing a blocked certificate will fail validation.

This property is not available at design time.

Please refer to the Certificate type for a complete list of fields.

Certificates Property (JAdESSigner Component)

A collection of certificates included in the electronic signature.

Syntax

property Certificates: TsbxCertificateList read get_Certificates;

Remarks

Use this property to access all certificates included into the signature(s) by its creator.

This property is read-only and not available at design time.

Please refer to the Certificate type for a complete list of fields.

CompactForm Property (JAdESSigner Component)

Specifies if the JWS compact serialization to be used.

Syntax

property CompactForm: Boolean read get_CompactForm write set_CompactForm;

Default Value

false

Remarks

When this property is set to "true" value, the JAdES component will use the JWS compact serialization format when saving a signature.

The JWS compact serialization format is a compact, Url safe representation of a JWS (JSON Web Signature) or JWE (JSON Web Encryption) object, used for transmitting security tokens.

The JWS compact serialization format supports only one signature without unprotected header (only JWS or JAdES BaselineB signature).

ContentType Property (JAdESSigner Component)

Specifies payload content type.

Syntax

property ContentType: String read get_ContentType write set_ContentType;

Default Value

''

Remarks

Use this property to indicate the content type of the JWS Payload.

This property provides a way for the application to disambiguate among different kinds of objects that might be present in the payload, but it is typically not used when the kind of object is already known. The value of this property is a string that conforms to the Internet Media Type (MIME) format, such as "text/plain" or "application/json".

It is optional to use this property and it is recommended to omit the "application/" prefix of the media type value when it is not needed. The recipient of the signed message should treat the value as if "application/" were prepended to it, unless it already contains a '/'.

CRLs Property (JAdESSigner Component)

A collection of certificate revocation lists embedded into the signature by the signer.

Syntax

property CRLs: TsbxCRLList read get_CRLs;

Remarks

Use this property to access the CRLs embedded into the signature by the signer.

This property is read-only and not available at design time.

Please refer to the CRL type for a complete list of fields.

DataBytes Property (JAdESSigner Component)

Use this property to pass a payload or an object data to component in the byte array form.

Syntax

property DataBytes: TBytes read get_DataBytes write set_DataBytes;

Remarks

Assign a byte array containing a JWS payload or an object data to be processed to this property.

This property is not available at design time.

DataFile Property (JAdESSigner Component)

A path to a file containing a payload or an object data.

Syntax

property DataFile: String read get_DataFile write set_DataFile;

Default Value

''

Remarks

Use this property to provide a JWS payload or an object data to be processed.

DataString Property (JAdESSigner Component)

Use this property to pass a payload or an object data to component in the string form.

Syntax

property DataString: String read get_DataString write set_DataString;

Default Value

''

Remarks

Assign a string containing a JWS payload or an object data to be processed to this property.

This property is not available at design time.

Detached Property (JAdESSigner Component)

Specifies whether a detached signature should be produced or verified.

Syntax

property Detached: Boolean read get_Detached write set_Detached;

Default Value

false

Remarks

Use this property to specify whether a detached signature should be produced or verified.

When this property is set to "true" value, the JWS payload will be detached from the signature and may either be a single detached object or the result of concatenating multiple detached data objects. In other words, the JWS payload and the signature are stored in separate objects.

If this property is set to "true" value, the user must provide the detached content via the DataFile or DataStream or DataBytes or DataString properties.

When Detached is set to "false" value, the JWS payload is included with the signature as a single object.

ExternalCrypto Property (JAdESSigner Component)

Provides access to external signing and DC parameters.

Syntax

property ExternalCrypto: TsbxExternalCrypto read get_ExternalCrypto;

Remarks

Use this property to tune-up remote cryptography settings. SecureBlackbox supports two independent types of external cryptography: synchronous (based on the ExternalSign event) and asynchronous (based on the DC protocol and the DCAuth signing component).

This property is read-only.

Please refer to the ExternalCrypto type for a complete list of fields.

ExtractPayload Property (JAdESSigner Component)

Specifies whether a payload should be extracted.

Syntax

property ExtractPayload: Boolean read get_ExtractPayload write set_ExtractPayload;

Default Value

false

Remarks

Use this property to specify whether a payload should be extracted when signature loaded. This applies only to non-detached signatures with a payload.

When this property is set to "true" value, the JWS payload will be extracted from the signature.

The user must provide the OutputFile or OutputStream properties with a filename or stream where to save the payload, if none is provided then payload is returned via OutputBytes or OutputString properties.

FIPSMode Property (JAdESSigner Component)

Reserved.

Syntax

property FIPSMode: Boolean read get_FIPSMode write set_FIPSMode;

Default Value

false

Remarks

This property is reserved for future use.

FlattenedSignature Property (JAdESSigner Component)

Specifies if the flattened signature to be used.

Syntax

property FlattenedSignature: Boolean read get_FlattenedSignature write set_FlattenedSignature;

Default Value

true

Remarks

This property determines whether to use the flattened JWS JSON serialization format. This format is optimized for the single digital signature case and flattens the general JWS JSON serialization syntax by removing the "signatures" member and instead placing the "protected", "header", and "signature" members at the top-level JSON object (at the same level as the "payload" member).

When the FlattenedSignature property is set to "true" value, the signature will be represented using the flattened JWS JSON serialization format, but it is only applicable when there is a single signature involved.

When the property is set to "false" value, the signature will be represented using the general JWS JSON serialization format.

IgnoreChainValidationErrors Property (JAdESSigner Component)

Makes the component tolerant to chain validation errors.

Syntax

property IgnoreChainValidationErrors: Boolean read get_IgnoreChainValidationErrors write set_IgnoreChainValidationErrors;

Default Value

false

Remarks

If this property is set to True, any errors emerging during certificate chain validation will be ignored. This setting may be handy if the purpose of validation is the creation of an LTV signature, and the validation is performed in an environment that doesn't trust the signer's certificate chain.

InputBytes Property (JAdESSigner Component)

Use this property to pass the input to component in byte array form.

Syntax

property InputBytes: TBytes read get_InputBytes write set_InputBytes;

Remarks

Assign a byte array containing the data to be processed to this property.

This property is not available at design time.

InputFile Property (JAdESSigner Component)

The file to be signed.

Syntax

property InputFile: String read get_InputFile write set_InputFile;

Default Value

''

Remarks

Provide the path to the JSON to be signed.

InputString Property (JAdESSigner Component)

Use this property to pass the input to component in the string form.

Syntax

property InputString: String read get_InputString write set_InputString;

Default Value

''

Remarks

Assign a string containing the data to be processed to this property.

This property is not available at design time.

KnownCertificates Property (JAdESSigner Component)

Additional certificates for chain validation.

Syntax

property KnownCertificates: TsbxCertificateList read get_KnownCertificates write set_KnownCertificates;

Remarks

Use this property to supply a list of additional certificates that might be needed for chain validation. An example of a scenario where you might want to do that is when intermediary CA certificates are absent from the standard system locations (or when there are no standard system locations), and therefore should be supplied to the component manually.

The purpose of the certificates to be added to this collection is roughly equivalent to that of the Intermediate Certification Authorities system store in Windows.

Do not add trust anchors or root certificates to this collection: add them to TrustedCertificates instead.

This property is not available at design time.

Please refer to the Certificate type for a complete list of fields.

KnownCRLs Property (JAdESSigner Component)

Additional CRLs for chain validation.

Syntax

property KnownCRLs: TsbxCRLList read get_KnownCRLs write set_KnownCRLs;

Remarks

Use this property to supply additional CRLs that might be needed for chain validation. This property may be helpful when a chain is validated in offline mode, and the associated CRLs are stored separately from the signed message or document.

This property is not available at design time.

Please refer to the CRL type for a complete list of fields.

KnownOCSPs Property (JAdESSigner Component)

Additional OCSP responses for chain validation.

Syntax

property KnownOCSPs: TsbxOCSPResponseList read get_KnownOCSPs write set_KnownOCSPs;

Remarks

Use this property to supply additional OCSP responses that might be needed for chain validation. This property may be helpful when a chain is validated in offline mode, and the associated OCSP responses are stored separately from the signed message or document.

This property is not available at design time.

Please refer to the OCSPResponse type for a complete list of fields.

NewSignature Property (JAdESSigner Component)

Provides access to new signature properties.

Syntax

property NewSignature: TsbxJAdESSignature read get_NewSignature;

Remarks

Use this property to tune-up signature properties.

This property is read-only and not available at design time.

Please refer to the JAdESSignature type for a complete list of fields.

OCSPs Property (JAdESSigner Component)

A collection of OCSP responses embedded into the signature.

Syntax

property OCSPs: TsbxOCSPResponseList read get_OCSPs;

Remarks

Use this property to access the OCSP responses embedded into the signature by its creator.

This property is read-only and not available at design time.

Please refer to the OCSPResponse type for a complete list of fields.

OfflineMode Property (JAdESSigner Component)

Switches the component to offline mode.

Syntax

property OfflineMode: Boolean read get_OfflineMode write set_OfflineMode;

Default Value

false

Remarks

When working in offline mode, the component restricts itself from using any online revocation information sources, such as CRL or OCSP responders.

Offline mode may be useful if there is a need to verify the completeness of the validation information included within the signature or provided via KnownCertificates, KnownCRLs, and other related properties.

OutputBytes Property (JAdESSigner Component)

Use this property to read the output the component object has produced.

Syntax

property OutputBytes: TBytes read get_OutputBytes;

Remarks

Read the contents of this property after the operation has completed to read the produced output. This property will only be set if the OutputFile and OutputStream properties had not been assigned.

This property is read-only and not available at design time.

OutputFile Property (JAdESSigner Component)

Defines where to save the signature.

Syntax

property OutputFile: String read get_OutputFile write set_OutputFile;

Default Value

''

Remarks

Specifies the path where the JWS/JAdES signature should be saved.

OutputString Property (JAdESSigner Component)

Use this property to read the output the component object has produced.

Syntax

property OutputString: String read get_OutputString;

Default Value

''

Remarks

Read the contents of this property after the operation is completed to read the produced output. This property will only be set if OutputFile and OutputStream properties had not been assigned.

This property is read-only and not available at design time.

Profile Property (JAdESSigner Component)

Specifies a pre-defined profile to apply when creating the signature.

Syntax

property Profile: String read get_Profile write set_Profile;

Default Value

''

Remarks

Advanced signatures come in many variants, which are often defined by parties that needs to process them or by local standards. SecureBlackbox profiles are sets of pre-defined configurations which correspond to particular signature variants. By specifying a profile, you are pre-configuring the component to make it produce the signature that matches the configuration corresponding to that profile.

Proxy Property (JAdESSigner Component)

The proxy server settings.

Syntax

property Proxy: TsbxProxySettings read get_Proxy;

Remarks

Use this property to tune up the proxy server settings.

This property is read-only.

RevocationCheck Property (JAdESSigner Component)

Specifies the kind(s) of revocation check to perform.

Syntax

property RevocationCheck: TsbxRevocationCheckKinds read get_RevocationCheck write set_RevocationCheck;
TsbxRevocationCheckKinds = ( crcNone, crcAuto, crcAllCRL, crcAllOCSP, crcAllCRLAndOCSP, crcAnyCRL, crcAnyOCSP, crcAnyCRLOrOCSP, crcAnyOCSPOrCRL );

Default Value

crcAuto

Remarks

Revocation checking is necessary to ensure the integrity of the chain and obtain up-to-date certificate validity and trustworthiness information.

Certificate Revocation Lists (CRLs) and Online Certificate Status Protocol (OCSP) responses serve the same purpose of ensuring that the certificate had not been revoked by the Certificate Authority (CA) at the time of use. Depending on your circumstances and security policy requirements, you may want to use either one or both of the revocation information source types.

crcNone0No revocation checking
crcAuto1Automatic mode selection. Currently this maps to crcAnyOCSPOrCRL, but it may change in the future.
crcAllCRL2Check all provided CRL endpoints for all chain certificates.
crcAllOCSP3Check all provided OCSP endpoints for all chain certificates.
crcAllCRLAndOCSP4Check all CRL and OCSP endpoints for all chain certificates.
crcAnyCRL5At least one CRL check for every certificate in the chain must succeed.
crcAnyOCSP6At least one OCSP check for every certificate in the chain must succeed.
crcAnyCRLOrOCSP7At least one CRL or OCSP check for every certificate in the chain must succeed. CRL endpoints are checked first.
crcAnyOCSPOrCRL8At least one CRL or OCSP check for every certificate in the chain must succeed. OCSP endpoints are checked first.

This setting controls the way the revocation checks are performed. Typically certificates come with two types of revocation information sources: CRL (certificate revocation lists) and OCSP responders. CRLs are static objects periodically published by the CA at some online location. OCSP responders are active online services maintained by the CA that can provide up-to-date information on certificate statuses in near real time.

There are some conceptual differences between the two. CRLs are normally larger in size. Their use involves some latency because there is normally some delay between the time when a certificate was revoked and the time the subsequent CRL mentioning that is published. The benefits of CRL is that the same object can provide statuses for all certificates issued by a particular CA, and that the whole technology is much simpler than OCSP (and thus is supported by more CAs).

This setting lets you adjust the validation course by including or excluding certain types of revocation sources from the validation process. The crcAnyOCSPOrCRL setting (give preference to the faster OCSP route and only demand one source to succeed) is a good choice for most typical validation environments. The 'crcAll*' modes are much stricter, and may be used in scenarios where bulletproof validity information is essential.

A list of trusted certificates for chain validation.

Syntax

property TrustedCertificates: TsbxCertificateList read get_TrustedCertificates write set_TrustedCertificates;

Remarks

Use this property to supply a list of trusted certificates that might be needed for chain validation. An example of a scenario where you might want to do that is when root CA certificates are absent from the standard system locations (or when there are no standard system locations), and therefore should be supplied to the component manually.

The purpose of this certificate collection is largely the same as that of the Windows Trusted Root Certification Authorities system store.

Use this property with extreme care as it directly affects chain verifiability; a wrong certificate added to the trusted list may result in bad chains being accepted, and forfeited signatures being recognized as genuine. Only add certificates that originate from the parties that you know and trust.

This property is not available at design time.

Please refer to the Certificate type for a complete list of fields.

Config Method (JAdESSigner Component)

Sets or retrieves a configuration setting.

Syntax

function Config(ConfigurationString: String): String;

Remarks

Config is a generic method available in every component. It is used to set and retrieve configuration settings for the component.

These settings are similar in functionality to properties, but they are rarely used. In order to avoid "polluting" the property namespace of the component, access to these internal properties is provided through the Config method.

To set a configuration setting named PROPERTY, you must call Config("PROPERTY=VALUE"), where VALUE is the value of the setting expressed as a string. For boolean values, use the strings "True", "False", "0", "1", "Yes", or "No" (case does not matter).

To read (query) the value of a configuration setting, you must call Config("PROPERTY"). The value will be returned as a string.

Sign Method (JAdESSigner Component)

Creates a new JAdES/JWS signature over the provided data.

Syntax

procedure Sign();

Remarks

Call this method to produce a new signature over the provided data.

SignAsyncBegin Method (JAdESSigner Component)

Initiates the asynchronous signing operation.

Syntax

function SignAsyncBegin(): String;

Remarks

When using the DC framework, call this method to initiate the asynchronous signing process. Upon completion, a pre-signed copy of the document will be saved in OutputFile (or OutputStream). Keep the pre-signed copy somewhere local, and pass the returned string ('the request state') to the DC processor for handling.

Upon receiving the response state from the DC processor, assign the path to the pre-signed copy to InputFile (or InputStream), and call SignAsyncEnd to finalize the signing.

Note that depending on the signing method and DC configuration used, you may still need to provide the public part of the signing certificate via the SigningCertificate property.

Use the ExternalCrypto.AsyncDocumentID property to supply a unique document ID to include in the request. This is helpful when creating batches of multiple async requests, as it allows you to pass the whole response batch to SignAsyncEnd and expect it to recover the correct response from the batch automatically.

AsyncState is a message of the distributed cryptography (DC) protocol. The DC protocol is based on the exchange of async states between a DC client (an application that wants to sign a PDF, XML, or Office document) and a DC server (an application that controls access to the private key). An async state can carry one or more signing requests, comprised of document hashes, or one or more signatures produced over those hashes.

In a typical scenario you get a client-side async state from the SignAsyncBegin method. This state contains document hashes to be signed on the DC server side. You then send the async state to the DC server (often represented by the DCAuth component), which processes it and produces a matching signature state. The async state produced by the server is then passed to the SignAsyncEnd method.

SignAsyncEnd Method (JAdESSigner Component)

Completes the asynchronous signing operation.

Syntax

procedure SignAsyncEnd(AsyncReply: String);

Remarks

When using the DC framework, call this method upon receiving the response state from the DC processor to complete the asynchronous signing process.

Before calling this method, assign the path to the pre-signed copy of the document obtained from the prior SignAsyncBegin call to InputFile (or InputStream). The method will embed the signature into the pre-signed document, and save the complete signed document to OutputFile (or OutputStream).

Note that depending on the signing method and DC configuration used, you may still need to provide the public part of the signing certificate via the SigningCertificate property.

Use the ExternalCrypto.AsyncDocumentID parameter to pass a specific document ID if using batched AsyncReply. If used, it should match the value provided on the pre-signing (SignAsyncBegin) stage.

AsyncState is a message of the distributed cryptography (DC) protocol. The DC protocol is based on the exchange of async states between a DC client (an application that wants to sign a PDF, XML, or Office document) and a DC server (an application that controls access to the private key). An async state can carry one or more signing requests, comprised of document hashes, or one or more signatures produced over those hashes.

In a typical scenario you get a client-side async state from the SignAsyncBegin method. This state contains document hashes to be signed on the DC server side. You then send the async state to the DC server (often represented by the DCAuth component), which processes it and produces a matching signature state. The async state produced by the server is then passed to the SignAsyncEnd method.

SignExternal Method (JAdESSigner Component)

Signs the data using an external signing facility.

Syntax

procedure SignExternal();

Remarks

Call this method to delegate the low-level signing operation to an external, remote, or custom signing engine. This method is useful if the signature has to be made by a device accessible through a custom or non-standard signing interface.

When all preparations are done and hash is computed, the component fires ExternalSign event which allows to pass the hash value for signing.

Timestamp Method (JAdESSigner Component)

Use this method to add timestamp.

Syntax

procedure Timestamp(SigIndex: Integer; TimestampType: Integer);

Remarks

Call this method to timestamp the signature. Use the TimestampServer property to provide the address of the TSA (Time Stamping Authority) server which should be used for timestamping. Use the TimestampType parameter to specify the type of timestamp to create

Supported timestamp types:

tstSignature12Signature timestamp
tstRefsOnly13RefsOnly timestamp
tstSigAndRefs14SigAndRefs timestamp

  Sender: TObject;
  const EventKind: String;
  const CertRDN: String;
  const CACertRDN: String;
  var Action: Integer
) of Object;

property OnChainValidationProgress: TChainValidationProgressEvent read FOnChainValidationProgress write FOnChainValidationProgress;

Remarks

Syntax

type TErrorEvent = procedure (
  Sender: TObject;
  ErrorCode: Integer;
  const Description: String
) of Object;

property OnError: TErrorEvent read FOnError write FOnError;

Remarks

ErrorCode contains an error code and Description contains a textual description of the error.

ExternalSign Event (JAdESSigner Component)

Handles remote or external signing initiated by the SignExternal method or other source.

Syntax

type TExternalSignEvent = procedure (
  Sender: TObject;
  const OperationId: String;
  const HashAlgorithm: String;
  const Pars: String;
  const Data: String;
  var SignedData: String
) of Object;

property OnExternalSign: TExternalSignEvent read FOnExternalSign write FOnExternalSign;

Remarks

Assign a handler to this event if you need to delegate a low-level signing operation to an external, remote, or custom signing engine. Depending on the settings, the handler will receive a hashed or unhashed value to be signed.

The event handler must pass the value of Data to the signer, obtain the signature, and pass it back to the component via the SignedData parameter.

OperationId provides a comment about the operation and its origin. It depends on the exact component being used, and may be empty. HashAlgorithm specifies the hash algorithm being used for the operation, and Pars contains algorithm-dependent parameters.

The component uses base16 (hex) encoding for the Data, SignedData, and Pars parameters. If your signing engine uses a different input and output encoding, you may need to decode and/or encode the data before and/or after the signing.

A sample MD5 hash encoded in base16: a0dee2a0382afbb09120ffa7ccd8a152 - lower case base16 A0DEE2A0382AFBB09120FFA7CCD8A152 - upper case base16

A sample event handler that uses the .NET RSACryptoServiceProvider class may look like the following: signer.OnExternalSign += (s, e) => { var cert = new X509Certificate2("cert.pfx", "", X509KeyStorageFlags.Exportable); var key = (RSACryptoServiceProvider)cert.PrivateKey; var dataToSign = e.Data.FromBase16String(); var signedData = key.SignHash(dataToSign, "2.16.840.1.101.3.4.2.1"); e.SignedData = signedData.ToBase16String(); };

  const EventParam: String
) of Object;

property OnNotification: TNotificationEvent read FOnNotification write FOnNotification;

Remarks

The component fires this event to let the application know about some event, occurrence, or milestone in the component. For example, it may fire to report completion of the document processing. The list of events being reported is not fixed, and may be flexibly extended over time.

The unique identifier of the event is provided in the EventID parameter. EventParam contains any parameters accompanying the occurrence. Depending on the type of the component, the exact action it is performing, or the document being processed, one or both may be omitted.

This component can fire this event with the following EventID values:

LoadedReports the completion of signature processing by the component. Use the event handler to access signature-related information. The EventParam value passed with this EventID is empty.
PayloadExtractedReports the completion of payload extraction by the component if ExtractPayload property is enabled. Use the event handler to access payload. The EventParam value passed with this EventID is empty.
BeforeTimestampThis event is fired before a timestamp is requested from the timestamping authority. Use the event handler to modify TSA and HTTP settings.
TimestampErrorThis event is only fired if the component failed to obtain a timestamp from the timestamping authority. The EventParam parameter contains extended error info.
TimestampRequestA timestamp is requested from the custom timestamping authority. This event is only fired if TimestampServer was set to a virtual:// URI. The EventParam parameter contains the TSP request (or the plain hash, depending on the value provided to TimestampServer), in base16, that needs to be sent to the TSA.

Use the event handler to send the request to the TSA. Upon receiving the response, assign it, in base16, to the TimestampResponse configuration property.

  Hash: TBytes;
  Base64: Boolean;
  var Valid: Boolean
) of Object;

property OnObjectValidate: TObjectValidateEvent read FOnObjectValidate write FOnObjectValidate;

Remarks

The event handler must pass the object validity to the component via Valid parameter.

SignatureFound Event (JAdESSigner Component)

Signifies the start of signature validation.

Syntax

type TSignatureFoundEvent = procedure (
  Sender: TObject;
  Index: Integer;
  const IssuerRDN: String;
  SerialNumber: TBytes;
  SubjectKeyID: TBytes;
  CertFound: Boolean;
  var ValidateSignature: Boolean;
  var ValidateChain: Boolean
) of Object;

property OnSignatureFound: TSignatureFoundEvent read FOnSignatureFound write FOnSignatureFound;

Remarks

This event tells the application that signature validation is about to start, and provides the details about the signer's certificate via its IssuerRDN, SerialNumber, and SubjectKeyID parameters. It fires for every signature located in the verified document or message.

The CertFound parameter is set to True if the component has found the needed certificate in one of the known locations, and to False otherwise, in which case you must provide it manually via the KnownCertificates property.

Signature validation consists of two independent stages: cryptographic signature validation and chain validation. Separate validation results are reported for each, with the SignatureValidationResult and ChainValidationResult properties respectively.

Use the ValidateSignature and ValidateChain parameters to tell the verifier which stages to include in the validation.

SignatureValidated Event (JAdESSigner Component)

Marks the completion of the signature validation routine.

) of Object;

property OnSignatureValidated: TSignatureValidatedEvent read FOnSignatureValidated write FOnSignatureValidated;

Remarks

This event is fired upon the completion of the signature validation routine, and reports the respective validation result.

Use the IssuerRDN, SerialNumber, and/or SubjectKeyID parameters to identify the signing certificate.

ValidationResult is set to 0 if the validation has been successful, or to a non-zero value in case of a validation failure.

svtValid0The signature is valid

svtUnknown1Signature validity is unknown

svtCorrupted2The signature is corrupted

svtSignerNotFound3Failed to acquire the signing certificate. The signature cannot be validated.

svtFailure4General failure

TimestampFound Event (JAdESSigner Component)

Signifies the start of a timestamp validation routine.

Syntax

type TTimestampFoundEvent = procedure (
  Sender: TObject;
  Index: Integer;
  const IssuerRDN: String;
  SerialNumber: TBytes;
  SubjectKeyID: TBytes;
  CertFound: Boolean;
  var ValidateTimestamp: Boolean;
  var ValidateChain: Boolean
) of Object;

property OnTimestampFound: TTimestampFoundEvent read FOnTimestampFound write FOnTimestampFound;

Remarks

This event fires for every timestamp identified during signature processing, and reports the details about the signer's certificate via its IssuerRDN, SerialNumber, and SubjectKeyID parameters.

The CertFound parameter is set to True if the component has found the needed certificate in one of the known locations, and to False otherwise, in which case you must provide it manually via the KnownCertificates property.

Just like with signature validation, timestamp validation consists of two independent stages: cryptographic signature validation and chain validation. Separate validation results are reported for each, with the ValidationResult and ChainValidationResult properties respectively.

Use the ValidateSignature and ValidateChain parameters to tell the verifier which stages to include in the validation.

TimestampRequest Event (JAdESSigner Component)

Fires when the component is ready to request a timestamp from an external TSA.

Syntax

type TTimestampRequestEvent = procedure (
  Sender: TObject;
  const TSA: String;
  const TimestampRequest: String;
  var TimestampResponse: String;
  var SuppressDefault: Boolean
) of Object;

property OnTimestampRequest: TTimestampRequestEvent read FOnTimestampRequest write FOnTimestampRequest;

Remarks

Subscribe to this event to intercept timestamp requests. You can use it to override timestamping requests and perform them in your code.

The TSA parameter indicates the timestamping service being used. It matches the value passed to the TimestampServer property. Set the SuppressDefault parameter to false if you would like to stop the built-in TSA request from going ahead. The built-in TSA request is also not performed if the returned TimestampResponse parameter is not empty.

TimestampValidated Event (JAdESSigner Component)

Reports the completion of the timestamp validation routine.

Syntax

type TTimestampValidatedEvent = procedure (
  Sender: TObject;
  Index: Integer;
  const IssuerRDN: String;
  SerialNumber: TBytes;
  SubjectKeyID: TBytes;
  const Time: String;
  ValidationResult: Integer;
  ChainValidationResult: Integer;
  ChainValidationDetails: Integer
) of Object;

property OnTimestampValidated: TTimestampValidatedEvent read FOnTimestampValidated write FOnTimestampValidated;

Remarks

This event is fired upon the completion of the timestamp validation routine, and reports the respective validation result.

ValidationResult is set to 0 if the validation has been successful, or to a non-zero value in case of a failure.

svtValid0The signature is valid

svtUnknown1Signature validity is unknown

svtCorrupted2The signature is corrupted

svtSignerNotFound3Failed to acquire the signing certificate. The signature cannot be validated.

svtFailure4General failure

TLSCertNeeded Event (JAdESSigner Component)

Fires when a remote TLS party requests a client certificate.

Syntax

type TTLSCertNeededEvent = procedure (
  Sender: TObject;
  const Host: String;
  const CANames: String
) of Object;

property OnTLSCertNeeded: TTLSCertNeededEvent read FOnTLSCertNeeded write FOnTLSCertNeeded;

Remarks

This event fires to notify the implementation that a remote TLS server has requested a client certificate. The Host parameter identifies the host that makes a request, and the CANames parameter (optional, according to the TLS spec) advises on the accepted issuing CAs.

Use the TLSClientChain property in response to this event to provide the requested certificate. Please make sure the client certificate includes the associated private key. Note that you may set the certificates before the connection without waiting for this event to fire.

This event is preceded by the TLSHandshake event for the given host and, if the certificate was accepted, succeeded by the TLSEstablished event.

TLSCertValidate Event (JAdESSigner Component)

This event is fired upon receipt of the TLS server's certificate, allowing the user to control its acceptance.

Syntax

type TTLSCertValidateEvent = procedure (
  Sender: TObject;
  const ServerHost: String;
  const ServerIP: String;
  var Accept: Boolean
) of Object;

property OnTLSCertValidate: TTLSCertValidateEvent read FOnTLSCertValidate write FOnTLSCertValidate;

Remarks

This event is fired during a TLS handshake. Use the TLSServerChain property to access the certificate chain. In general, components may contact a number of TLS endpoints during their work, depending on their configuration.

Accept is assigned in accordance with the outcome of the internal validation check performed by the component, and can be adjusted if needed.

TLSEstablished Event (JAdESSigner Component)

Fires when a TLS handshake with Host successfully completes.

Syntax

type TTLSEstablishedEvent = procedure (
  Sender: TObject;
  const Host: String;
  const Version: String;
  const Ciphersuite: String;
  ConnectionId: TBytes;
  var Abort: Boolean
) of Object;

property OnTLSEstablished: TTLSEstablishedEvent read FOnTLSEstablished write FOnTLSEstablished;

Remarks

The component uses this event to notify the application about a successful completion of a TLS handshake.

The Version, Ciphersuite, and ConnectionId parameters indicate the security parameters of the new connection. Use the Abort parameter if you need to terminate the connection at this stage.

TLSHandshake Event (JAdESSigner Component)

Fires when a new TLS handshake is initiated, before the handshake commences.

Syntax

type TTLSHandshakeEvent = procedure (
  Sender: TObject;
  const Host: String;
  var Abort: Boolean
) of Object;

property OnTLSHandshake: TTLSHandshakeEvent read FOnTLSHandshake write FOnTLSHandshake;

Remarks

The component uses this event to notify the application about the start of a new TLS handshake to Host. If the handshake is successful, this event will be followed by the TLSEstablished event. If the server chooses to request a client certificate, the TLSCertNeeded event will also be fired.

TLSShutdown Event (JAdESSigner Component)

Reports the graceful closure of a TLS connection.

Syntax

type TTLSShutdownEvent = procedure (
  Sender: TObject;
  const Host: String
) of Object;

property OnTLSShutdown: TTLSShutdownEvent read FOnTLSShutdown write FOnTLSShutdown;

Remarks

This event notifies the application about the closure of an earlier established TLS connection. Note that only graceful connection closures are reported.

Constructors

>

constructor Create();

Creates a new object with default field values.

CRL Type

Represents a Certificate Revocation List.

Remarks

CRLs store information about revoked certificates, i.e., certificates that have been identified as invalid by their issuing certificate authority (CA) for any number of reasons.

Each CRL object lists certificates from a single CA and identifies them by their serial numbers. A CA may or may not publish a CRL, may publish several CRLs, or may publish the same CRL in multiple locations.

Unlike OCSP responses, CRLs only list certificates that have been revoked. They do not list certificates that are still valid.

Fields

Bytes
TBytes (read-only)

Default Value: ""

Returns the raw CRL data in DER format.

CAKeyID
TBytes

Default Value: ""

A unique identifier (fingerprint) of the CA certificate's private key, if present in the CRL.

EntryCount
Integer (read-only)

Default Value: 0

Returns the number of certificate status entries in the CRL.

Handle
Int64

Default Value: 0

Allows to get or set a 'handle', a unique identifier of the underlying property object. Use this property to assign objects of the same type in a quicker manner, without copying them fieldwise.

When you pass a handle of one object to another, the source object is copied to the destination rather than assigned. It is safe to get rid of the original object after such operation. pdfSigner.setSigningCertHandle(certMgr.getCertHandle());

Issuer
String (read-only)

Default Value: ""

The common name of the CRL issuer (CA), typically a company name.

IssuerRDN
String (read-only)

Default Value: ""

String (read-only)

Default Value: ""

The date and time at which this version of the CRL was published.

Constructors

>

constructor Create();

Creates an empty CRL object.

ExternalCrypto Type

Specifies the parameters of external cryptographic calls.

Remarks

External cryptocalls are used in a Distributed Cryptography (DC) subsystem, which allows the delegation of security operations to the remote agent. For instance, it can be used to compute the signature value on the server, while retaining the client's private key locally.

Fields

AsyncDocumentID
String

Default Value: ""

Specifies an optional document ID for SignAsyncBegin() and SignAsyncEnd() calls.

Use this property when working with multi-signature DCAuth requests and responses to uniquely identify documents signed within a larger batch. On the completion stage, this value helps the signing component identify the correct signature in the returned batch of responses.

If using batched requests, make sure to set this property to the same value on both the pre-signing (SignAsyncBegin) and completion (SignAsyncEnd) stages.

CustomParams
String

Default Value: ""

Custom parameters to be passed to the signing service (uninterpreted).

Data
String

Default Value: ""

Additional data to be included in the async state and mirrored back by the requestor.

ExternalHashCalculation
Boolean

Default Value: False

Specifies whether the message hash is to be calculated at the external endpoint. Please note that this mode is not supported by the DCAuth component.

If set to true, the component will pass a few kilobytes of to-be-signed data from the document to the OnExternalSign event. This only applies when SignExternal() is called.

HashAlgorithm

KeyID
String

Default Value: ""

The ID of the pre-shared key used for DC request authentication.

Asynchronous DCAuth-driven communication requires that parties authenticate each other with a secret pre-shared cryptographic key. This provides an extra protection layer for the protocol and diminishes the risk of the private key becoming abused by foreign parties. Use this property to provide the pre-shared key identifier, and use KeySecret to pass the key itself.

The same KeyID/KeySecret pair should be used on the DCAuth side for the signing requests to be accepted.

Note: The KeyID/KeySecret scheme is very similar to the AuthKey scheme used in various Cloud service providers to authenticate users.

Example: signer.ExternalCrypto.KeyID = "MainSigningKey"; signer.ExternalCrypto.KeySecret = "abcdef0123456789";

KeySecret
String

Default Value: ""

The pre-shared key used for DC request authentication. This key must be set and match the key used by the DCAuth counterpart for the scheme to work.

Read more about configuring authentication in the KeyID topic.

Method

Available options:

ecmDefaultThe default value (0)
ecmDisabledDo not use DC or external signing (1)
ecmGenericGeneric external signing with the OnExternalSign event (2)
ecmDCAuthDCAuth signing (3)
ecmDCAuthJSONDCAuth signing in JSON format (4)

PublicKeyAlgorithm
String

Default Value: ""

Provide the public key algorithm here if the certificate is not available on the pre-signing stage.

ObjectType
String

Default Value: "jose+json"

Specifies signature object content type.

Use this property to specify the content type of the signature object.

It is used by the application to differentiate between different types of objects that might be present in an application data structure containing a JWS or JAdES.

The default value is "jose+json" which indicates that it is a JWS or JAdES using the JWS JSON Serialization, and "jose" which indicates that the object is a JWS or JAdES using the JWS Compact Serialization. Other type values can also be used by the application.

Contains the pre-shared key for the PSK (Pre-Shared Key) key-exchange mechanism, encoded with base16.

PreSharedKeyCiphersuite
String

Default Value: ""

Defines the ciphersuite used for PSK (Pre-Shared Key) negotiation.

RenegotiationAttackPreventionMode
TsbxRenegotiationAttackPreventionModes

Default Value: 0

Selects the renegotiation attack prevention mechanism.

The following options are available:

crapmCompatible0TLS 1.0 and 1.1 compatibility mode (renegotiation indication extension is disabled).
crapmStrict1Renegotiation attack prevention is enabled and enforced.
crapmAuto2Automatically choose whether to enable or disable renegotiation attack prevention.

RevocationCheck
TsbxRevocationCheckKinds

Default Value: 1

Specifies the kind(s) of revocation check to perform.

Revocation checking is necessary to ensure the integrity of the chain and obtain up-to-date certificate validity and trustworthiness information.

crcNone0No revocation checking
crcAuto1Automatic mode selection. Currently this maps to crcAnyOCSPOrCRL, but it may change in the future.
crcAllCRL2Check all provided CRL endpoints for all chain certificates.
crcAllOCSP3Check all provided OCSP endpoints for all chain certificates.
crcAllCRLAndOCSP4Check all CRL and OCSP endpoints for all chain certificates.
crcAnyCRL5At least one CRL check for every certificate in the chain must succeed.
crcAnyOCSP6At least one OCSP check for every certificate in the chain must succeed.
crcAnyCRLOrOCSP7At least one CRL or OCSP check for every certificate in the chain must succeed. CRL endpoints are checked first.
crcAnyOCSPOrCRL8At least one CRL or OCSP check for every certificate in the chain must succeed. OCSP endpoints are checked first.

This setting controls the way the revocation checks are performed. Typically certificates come with two types of revocation information sources: CRL (certificate revocation lists) and OCSP responders. CRLs are static objects periodically published by the CA at some online location. OCSP responders are active online services maintained by the CA that can provide up-to-date information on certificate statuses in near real time.

There are some conceptual differences between the two. CRLs are normally larger in size. Their use involves some latency because there is normally some delay between the time when a certificate was revoked and the time the subsequent CRL mentioning that is published. The benefits of CRL is that the same object can provide statuses for all certificates issued by a particular CA, and that the whole technology is much simpler than OCSP (and thus is supported by more CAs).

This setting lets you adjust the validation course by including or excluding certain types of revocation sources from the validation process. The crcAnyOCSPOrCRL setting (give preference to the faster OCSP route and only demand one source to succeed) is a good choice for most typical validation environments. The 'crcAll*' modes are much stricter, and may be used in scenarios where bulletproof validity information is essential.

Config Settings (JAdESSigner Component)

The component accepts one or more of the following configuration settings. Configuration settings are similar in functionality to properties, but they are rarely used. In order to avoid "polluting" the property namespace of the component, access to these internal properties is provided through the Config method.

JAdESSigner Config Settings

AddSignedDataTimestamp:   Whether to add signed data timestamp during signing.

If this property is set to True, the signed data timestamp will be added.

CertThumbprint:   Specifies the certificate thumbprint.

The certificate thumbprint that was included into the signature.

CertURL:   Specifies the certificate URL.

The certificate URL that was included or to be included into the signature.

The certificate URL is the "x5u" (X.509 URL) Header Parameter that refers to a resource for the X.509 public key certificate or certificate chain corresponding to the key used to digitally sign the JWS or JAdES.

DataBase64:   Specifies whether data is Base64-URL-encoded.

This property controls the "b64" header parameter and it determines the representation of the JWS payload or object data. Its value must be the same for all signatures if there are multiple of them in the JSON.

If the value is set to "true", the JWS payload will be represented as a Base64-URL-encoded string.

If the value is "false", the JWS payload will be represented without any encoding.

The default value of this property is "true".

ForceCompleteChainValidationForTrusted:   Whether to continue with the full validation up to the root CA certificate for mid-level trust anchors.

Set this property to True to enable full chain validation for explicitly trusted intermediary or end-entity certificates. This may be useful when creating signatures to enforce completeness of the collected revocation information. It often makes sense to set this property to false when validating signatures to reduce validation time and avoid issues with badly configured environments.

GracePeriod:   Specifies a grace period to apply during revocation information checks.

Use this property to specify a grace period (in seconds). Grace period applies to certain subprotocols, such as OCSP, and caters to the inaccuracy and/or missynchronization of clocks on different participating systems. Any time deviations within the grace period will be tolerated.

IgnoreOCSPNoCheckExtension:   Whether the OCSP NoCheck extension should be ignored.

Set this property to True to make the validation engine ignore the OCSP no-check extension. You would normally need to set this property when validating severely non-compliant chains that misuse the extension, causing chain loops or other validation issues.

IgnoreSystemTrust:   Whether trusted Windows Certificate Stores should be treated as trusted.

Specifies whether, during chain validation, the component should respect the trust to CA certificates as configured in the operating system. In Windows this effectively defines whether the component should trust the certificates residing in the Trusted Root Certification Authorities store.

If IgnoreSystemTrust is True, certificates residing in the trusted root store are treated as if they are known, rather than trusted. Only certificates provided via other means (such as the TrustedCertificates property) are considered trusted.

IgnoreTimestampFailure:   Whether to ignore time-stamping failure during signing.

If this property is set to True, any failure during time-stamping process will be ignored.

ImplicitlyTrustSelfSignedCertificates:   Whether to trust self-signed certificates.

Set this property to True to implicitly trust all self-signed certificates. Use it with care as trusting just about every self-signed certificate is unwise. One exceptional reason where this property may be handy is where a chain is validated in an environment that is not supposed to trust it (for example, a signing, rather than verifying environment, or a QA server). Trusting all self-signing certificates (which are normally trusted) allows emulating the verifying environment without actually changing its security settings.

IncludeKnownRevocationInfoToSignature:   Whether to include custom revocation info to the signature.

This property specifies whether revocation pieces provided via KnownCertificates, KnownCRLs, and KnownOCSPs properties should be included into the signature. This property lets you include custom validation elements to the signature in addition to the ones comprising the signing chain.

JAdESOptions:   Specifies the JAdES options.

Contains a comma-separated list of values that specifies JAdES options.

Supported values are:

WriteBase64ParamThe parameter controls the inclusion of the "b64" header parameter in the signature. When this flag is set, the "b64" header parameter will always be included in the header. Otherwise, the "b64" header parameter will only be included in the header when it is required.
PreferEtsiUClearInstanceThe parameter determines whether the EtsiU components should be written as clear JSON instances or as Base64-encoded strings. When this flag is set, EtsiU components will be written as clear JSON instances, if possible. Otherwise, the EtsiU components will be Base64url-encoded strings.

KeyId:   Specifies Key ID.

The Key ID that was included or to be included into the signature.

Key ID is a hint indicating which key was used to secure the JWS or JAdES.

PolicyDescription:   signature policy description.

This property specifies the Description of the signature policy.

PolicyExplicitText:   The explicit text of the user notice.

Use this property to specify the explicit text of the user notice to be displayed when the signature is verified.

Defines the "noticeNumbers" part of the NoticeReference signature policy qualifier for CAdES-EPES.

PolicyUNOrganization:   The organization part of the NoticeReference qualifier.

Defines the "organization" part of the NoticeReference signature policy qualifier for CAdES-EPES.

ProductionPlace:   Identifies the place of the signature production.

The signature production place in JSON format that was included or to be included into the signature.

Sample value: '{"addressCountry": "UK", "addressLocality": "London", "postalCode": "N1 7GU", "streetAddress": "20-22 Wenlock Road"}'

PromoteLongOCSPResponses:   Whether long OCSP responses are requested.

Set this property to True to force the component to publish the 'long' form of OCSP responses. Otherwise, only BasicOCSPResponse blobs are promoted.

ProtectedHeader:   Specifies the protected header.

The protected header that was included or to be included into the signature.

SchemeParams:   The algorithm scheme parameters to employ.

Use this property to specify the parameters of the algorithm scheme if needed.

This setting is used to provide parameters for some cryptographic schemes. Use the Name1=Value1;Name2=Value2;... syntax to encode the parameters. For example: Scheme=PSS;SaltSize=32;TrailerField=1.

SignerAttrs:   Identifies the signer attributes.

The signer attributes in JSON format that was included or to be included into the signature.

SignerCommitments:   Identifies the signer commitments.

The signer commitments in JSON format that was included or to be included into the signature.

If this property is set to True, the signing certificate issuer and serial number will be included into the signature.

SigningCertIncludeThumbprint:   Specifies whether to include signing certificate thumbprint.

If this property is set to True, the signing certificate thumbprint will be included into the signature.

SigningCertIncludeValue:   Specifies whether to include signing certificate value.

If this property is set to True, the signing certificate value will be included into the signature.

SigningChainIncludeThumbprints:   Specifies whether to include signing chain thumbprints.

If this property is set to True, the signing chain thumbprints will be included into the signature.

SigningChainIncludeValue:   Specifies whether to include signing chain values.

If this property is set to True, the signing chain values will be included into the signature.

TempPath:   Location where the temporary files are stored.

This setting specifies an absolute path to the location on disk where temporary files are stored.

ThumbprintHashAlgorithm:   Specifies the thumbprint hash algorithm.

The certificate thumbprint hash algorithm that was included or to be included into the signature.

TimestampResponse:   A base16-encoded timestamp response received from a TSA.

When using virtual:// timestamp endpoints, assign this property in your Notification event handler with the TSP response that you receive from the TSA. Remember to encode the response in hex (base16).

ocspOCSP responses

TLSChainValidationDetails:   Contains the advanced details of the TLS server certificate validation.

Check this property in the TLSCertValidate event handler to access the TLS certificate validation details.

TLSChainValidationResult:   Contains the result of the TLS server certificate validation.

Check this property in the TLSCertValidate event handler to obtain the TLS certificate validation result.

TLSClientAuthRequested:   Indicates whether the TLS server requests client authentication.

Check this property in the TLSCertValidate event handler to find out whether the TLS server requests the client to provide the authentication certificate. If this property is set to true, provide your certificate via the TLSClientChain property. Note that the component may fire this event more than once during each operation, as more than one TLS-enabled server may need to be contacted.

TLSValidationLog:   Contains the log of the TLS server certificate validation.

Check this property in the TLSCertValidate event handler to retrieve the validation log of the TLS server.

TolerateMinorChainIssues:   Whether to tolerate minor chain issues.

This parameter controls whether the chain validator should tolerate minor technical issues when validating the chain. Those are:

  • CA, revocation source, TLS key usage requirements are not mandated
  • Violation of OCSP issuer requirements are ignored
  • The AuthorityKeyID extension in CRL- and certificate-issuing CAs are ignored (helps with incorrectly renewed certificates)
  • Basic constraints and name constraints of CA certificates are ignored
  • Some weaker algorithms are tolerated
TspAttemptCount:   Specifies the number of timestamping request attempts.

Use this property to specify a number of timestamping request attempts.

In case of a timestamping failure, provide new TSA and HTTP settings inside the Notification event handler ('BeforeTimestamp' and 'TimestampError' event IDs).

TspHashAlgorithm:   Sets a specific hash algorithm for use with the timestamping service.

In default configuration component uses the 'SHA256' hash algorithm. Use this property to specify a different hash algorithm for the timestamp.

TspReqPolicy:   Sets a request policy ID to include in the timestamping request.

Use this property to provide a specific request policy OID to include in the timestamping request. Use the standard human-readable OID notation (1.2.3.4.5).

UnprotectedHeader:   Specifies the unprotected header.

The unprotected header that was included or to be included into the signature.

UseMicrosoftCTL:   Enables or disables the automatic use of the Microsoft online certificate trust list.

Enable this property to make the chain validation module automatically look up missing CA certificates in the public Windows Update repository.

UsePSS:   Whether to use RSASSA-PSS algorithm.

Although the RSASSA-PSS algorithm provides better security than a classic RSA scheme (PKCS#1-1.5), please take into account that RSASSA-PSS is a relatively new algorithm which may not be understood by older implementations.

UseSystemCertificates:   Enables or disables the use of the system certificates.

Use this property to tell the chain validation module to automatically look up missing CA certificates in the system certificates. In many cases it is beneficial to switch this property on, as the operating system certificate configuration provides a representative trust framework.

ValidationDataRefsDetails:   Specifies validation data references details to include to the signature.

Contains a comma-separated list of values that specifies which validation data references details to include to the "xRefs", "rRefs", "axRefs" and "arRefs" JSON objects/arrays.

Supported values are:

MaxASN1BufferLength:   Specifies the maximal allowed length for ASN.1 primitive tag data.

This global property limits the maximal allowed length for ASN.1 tag data for non-content-carrying structures, such as certificates, CRLs, or timestamps. It does not affect structures that can carry content, such as CMS/CAdES messages. This is a security property aiming at preventing DoS attacks.

MaxASN1TreeDepth:   Specifies the maximal depth for processed ASN.1 trees.

This global property limits the maximal depth of ASN.1 trees that the component can handle without throwing an error. This is a security property aiming at preventing DoS attacks.

OCSPHashAlgorithm:   Specifies the hash algorithm to be used to identify certificates in OCSP requests.

This global setting defines the hash algorithm to use in OCSP requests during chain validation. Some OCSP responders can only use older algorithms, in which case setting this property to SHA1 may be helpful.

Set this property to enable or disable static DNS rules for the component. Works only if UseOwnDNSResolver is set to true.

Supported values are:

noneNo static DNS rules (default)
localLocal static DNS rules
globalGlobal static DNS rules

StaticIPAddress[domain]:   Gets or sets an IP address for the specified domain name.

Use this property to get or set an IP address for the specified domain name in the internal (of the component) or global DNS rules storage depending on the StaticDNS value. The type of the IP address (IPv4 or IPv6) is determined automatically. If both addresses are available, they are devided by the | (pipe) character.

StaticIPAddresses:   Gets or sets all the static DNS rules.

Use this property to get static DNS rules from the current rules storage or restore them back between application sessions. If StaticDNS of the component is set to "local", the property returns/restores the rules from/to the internal storage of the component. If StaticDNS of the component is set to "global", the property returns/restores the rules from/to the GLOBAL storage. The rules list is returned and accepted in JSON format.

Tag:   Allows to store any custom data.

Use this config property to store any custom data.

TLSSessionGroup:   Specifies the group name of TLS sessions to be used for session resumption.

Use this property to limit the search of chached TLS sessions to the specified group. Sessions from other groups will be ignored. By default, all sessions are cached with an empty group name and available to all the components.

TLSSessionLifetime:   Specifies lifetime in seconds of the cached TLS session.

Use this property to specify how much time the TLS session should be kept in the session cache. After this time, the session expires and will be automatically removed from the cache. Default value is 300 seconds (5 minutes).

Use this property to specify the time interval of purging the expired TLS sessions from the session cache. Default value is 60 seconds (1 minute).

UseOwnDNSResolver:   Specifies whether the client components should use own DNS resolver.

Set this global property to false to force all the client components to use the DNS resolver provided by the target OS instead of using own one.

UseSharedSystemStorages:   Specifies whether the validation engine should use a global per-process copy of the system certificate stores.

Set this global property to false to make each validation run use its own copy of system certificate stores.

UseSystemOAEPAndPSS:   Enforces or disables the use of system-driven RSA OAEP and PSS computations.

This global setting defines who is responsible for performing RSA-OAEP and RSA-PSS computations where the private key is stored in a Windows system store and is exportable. If set to true, SBB will delegate the computations to Windows via a CryptoAPI call. Otherwise, it will export the key material and perform the computations using its own OAEP/PSS implementation.

This setting only applies to certificates originating from a Windows system store.

UseSystemRandom:   Enables or disables the use of the OS PRNG.

Use this global property to enable or disable the use of operating system-driven pseudorandom number generation.
