The PDFSigner component signs PDF documents digitally.

Syntax

TsbxPDFSigner

Remarks

PDFSigner can sign PDF documents in accordance with a selection of PDF and PAdES signature standards.

Standards and technologies supported

PDFSigner can create PDF signatures that match the following baseline standards:

  • Generic PDF signatures (ISO 32000)
  • PAdES: all profiles are supported (BES, EPES, T, LTV, B-B, B-T, and others) (ETSI EN 319 142-1 and others)
  • Signature and document timestamps using external TSAs.
  • All industry-standard cryptographic algorithms (RSA, ECDSA, SHA256-512, and many others).

Configuring the signature spec

Configuring PDFSigner to produce signatures of the right type is one of the most important questions you need to address. Normally the service or software you will be communicating your PDF documents to will provide you with the list of requirements that your signatures should match.

Typically, those will dictate the following key aspects of the signatures:

  • Level (BES, T, or LTV). This can be adjusted with the Level property (Note: when creating EPES signatures you need to provide the signature PolicyID and PolicyHash properties).
  • Timestamp requirement: provide the address of your online TSA service via TimestampServer property.
  • When creating LTV signatures, tune up validation parameters via RevocationCheck, OfflineMode, and IgnoreChainValidationErrors properties.
  • To create a document timestamp, sign your document first, and then sign the result again with Level set to pslDocumentTimestamp and TimestampServer pointing to the TSA URL.

Signing certificates

PDFSigner 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) 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 interfaces can be plugged in with the external signing feature (see below).

You can 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 SigningChain property.

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.

You don't need to provide a signing certificate or chain when creating document timestamp signatures, since this type of signatures is done with a TSA's certificate.

Widget adjustment

PDFSigner provides means to customize the look of the signature widget to be shown on the document page. Create your very own signatures in the form of your company's logo, a handwritten signature, or a wet seal.

Alternatively, you can choose not to associate any widget with your signature by setting Invisible to true.

Signing the document

Now that you have set up all signature, certificate, and widget properties, it is time to sign. You can provide the input document in one of the following forms: as a file (assign the path to InputFile property), as a stream (assign to InputStream property), 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 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. in PAdES-BES signing variant), or it may involve advanced chain validation routines (PAdES-LTV). During the latter the component may contact a number of external revocation information sources (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 PDFSigner may fire events to let your code know of certain conditions. If the input document is encrypted but no decryption parameters were found in Password and DecryptionCertificate properties, the component would fire DecryptionInfoNeeded event to tell your code that it needs decryption information to be able to continue with the signing. 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 to be validated.

External signing and DCAuth

PDFSigner, like many other components offered by 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 usage scenario best.

Synchronous method: ExternalSign

This is a simpler method that basically lets you infiltrate into the heart of 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 often 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 PDFSigner - initiates the operation using SignAsyncBegin call. This produces two outcomes: a pre-signed document (a document with a blank signature placeholder), and a request state (an object containing a hash that needs to be signed). At this point the PDFSigner 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 controls, and passes the response state, together with the pre-signed version of the document, to the signer's SignAsyncEnd method. SignAsyncEnd extracts the signature from the response state and incorporates it into the pre-signed document.

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. Below is given a summary of such parameters.

  • RevocationCheck property 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 component from looking for any validation tokens online. If this property is switched on, the component will only use 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 for 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.

Default Value

0

Remarks

Over the course of the validation process, the validator maintains an interim validity status for the chain that is being processed. This status is influenced by every single step of the validation routine, and may change along the way, before the end of the chain is reached and the final validation conclusion is drawn.

Syntax

property InterimValidationResult: TsbxChainValidities read get_InterimValidationResult write set_InterimValidationResult;
TsbxChainValidities = ( cvtValid, cvtValidButUntrusted, cvtInvalid, cvtCantBeEstablished );

Default Value

cvtValid

Remarks

Over the course of the validation process, the validator maintains an interim validity status for the chain that is being processed. This status is influenced by every single step of the validation routine, and may change along the way, before the end of the chain is reached and the final validation conclusion is drawn.

Use this property to check the interim validity status mid-flight.

cvtValid0The chain is valid

cvtValidButUntrusted1The chain is valid, but the root certificate is not trusted

cvtInvalid2The chain is not valid (some of certificates are revoked, expired, or contain an invalid signature)

cvtCantBeEstablished3The validity of the chain cannot be established because of missing or unavailable validation information (certificates, CRLs, or OCSP responses)

This property is not available at design time.

KnownCertificates Property (PDFSigner 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 certificates to be added to this collection is roughly equivalent to that of 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.

KnownCRLs Property (PDFSigner 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.

KnownOCSPs Property (PDFSigner 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.

MetadataEncrypted Property (PDFSigner Component)

Indicates if the document metadata is encrypted.

Syntax

property MetadataEncrypted: Boolean read get_MetadataEncrypted;

Default Value

true

Remarks

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 validation information included within the signature or provided via KnownCertificates, KnownCRLs, and other related properties.

OutputBytes Property (PDFSigner 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 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.

The file to save the signed or updated document to.

Syntax

property OutputFile: String read get_OutputFile write set_OutputFile;

Default Value

''

Remarks

Use this property to provide a path where the resulting PDF document should be saved to.

Password Property (PDFSigner Component)

The decryption password.

Syntax

property Password: String read get_Password write set_Password;

Default Value

''

Remarks

Use this property to provide the decryption password.

Permissions Property (PDFSigner Component)

Contains the document permissions associated with the encryption.

Syntax

property Permissions: TsbxPDFPermissions read get_Permissions;

Remarks

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

Profile Property (PDFSigner 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.

Supported profiles:

"BR.AD_RB_v1_0"Brazilian signature with Basic Reference (AD-RB) version 1.0
"BR.AD_RB_v1_1"Brazilian signature with Basic Reference (AD-RB) version 1.1
"BR.AD_RT_v1_0"Brazilian signature with Time Reference (AD-RT) version 1.0
"BR.AD_RT_v1_1"Brazilian signature with Time Reference (AD-RT) version 1.1
"BR.AD_RC_v1_1"Brazilian signature with Complete References (AD-RC) version 1.1
"BR.AD_RC_v1_2"Brazilian signature with Complete References (AD-RC) version 1.2
"BR.AD_RA_v1_1"Brazilian signature with References for Archiving (AD-RA) version 1.1
"BR.AD_RA_v1_2"Brazilian signature with References for Archiving (AD-RA) version 1.2
"PAdES.BASELINE-B"PAdES B-B level (ETSI TS 103 172 v2.1.1 Baseline Profile)
"PAdES.BASELINE-T"PAdES B-T level
"PAdES.BASELINE-LT.Update"PAdES B-LT level
"PAdES.BASELINE-LTA.Update"PAdES B-LTA level

"PAdES.BASELINE-B" profile equivalent to the following settings: Signer.Signature.Level = PDFSignatureLevels.pslBES; Signer.Config("AutoCollectRevocationInfo=false"); This code uses PAdES-BES form (signature that do not incorporate signature-policy-identifier). Alternatively, you can use PAdES-EPES form (signature that do incorporate signature-policy-identifier) with the following code modification: Signer.Signature.Level = PDFSignatureLevels.pslEPES;

"PAdES.BASELINE-T" profile extends "PAdES.BASELINE-B" profile with the following settings: Signer.TimestampServer = "https://freetsa.org/tsr";

"PAdES.BASELINE-LT.Update" profile is applied in Update method. It extends the signature created using PAdES B-T level ("PAdES.BASELINE-T" profile). Signer.Config("AutoCollectRevocationInfo=true");

"PAdES.BASELINE-LTA.Update" profile is applied in Update method. It extends the signature created using PAdES B-T level ("PAdES.BASELINE-T" profile). Signer.Config("AutoCollectRevocationInfo=true"); Signer.TimestampServer = "https://freetsa.org/tsr";

Proxy Property (PDFSigner 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 (PDFSigner 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 (CRL) 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.

crcNone (0)No revocation checking
crcAuto (1)Automatic mode selection. Currently this maps to crcAnyOCSPOrCRL, but it may change in the future.
crcAllCRL (2)Check all provided CRL endpoints for all chain certificates.
crcAllOCSP (3)Check all provided OCSP endpoints for all chain certificates.
crcAllCRLAndOCSP (4)Check all CRL and OCSP endpoints for all chain certificates.
crcAnyCRL (5)At least one CRL check for every certificate in the chain must succeed.
crcAnyOCSP (6)At least one OCSP check for every certificate in the chain must succeed.
crcAnyCRLOrOCSP (7)At least one CRL or OCSP check for every certificate in the chain must succeed. CRL endpoints are checked first.
crcAnyOCSPOrCRL (8)At 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 faster OCSP route and only demand one source to succeed) is a good choice for most of typical validation environments. The 'crcAll*' modes are much stricter, and may be used in scenarios where bulletproof validity information is essential.

Signature Property (PDFSigner Component)

Provides access to signature properties.

Syntax

property Signature: TsbxPDFSignature read get_Signature write set_Signature;

Remarks

Use this property to tune-up signature properties and widget appearance.

This property is not available at design time.

SigningCertificate Property (PDFSigner Component)

The certificate to be used for signing.

Syntax

property SigningCertificate: TsbxCertificate read get_SigningCertificate write set_SigningCertificate;

Remarks

Use this property to specify the certificate that shall be used for signing the data. Note that this certificate should have a private key associated with it. Use SigningChain to supply the rest of the certificate chain for inclusion into the signature.

This property is not available at design time.

SigningChain Property (PDFSigner Component)

The signing certificate chain.

Syntax

property SigningChain: TsbxCertificateList read get_SigningChain write set_SigningChain;

Remarks

Use this property to provide the chain for the signing certificate. Use SigningCertificate property, if it is available, to provide the signing certificate itself.

This property is not available at design time.

SocketSettings Property (PDFSigner Component)

Manages network connection settings.

Syntax

property SocketSettings: TsbxSocketSettings read get_SocketSettings;

Remarks

Use this property to tune up network connection parameters.

This property is read-only.

TimestampServer Property (PDFSigner Component)

The address of the timestamping server.

Syntax

property TimestampServer: String read get_TimestampServer write set_TimestampServer;

Default Value

''

Remarks

Use this property to set the address of the TSA (Time Stamping Authority) server to use for timestamping the signature (normal signing) or the document (LTV update).

If your timestamping service enforces credential-based user authentication (basic or digest), you can provide the credentials in the same URL:

http://user:password@timestamp.server.com/TsaService

For TSAs using certificate-based TLS authentication, provide the client certificate via the TLSClientChain property.

TLSClientChain Property (PDFSigner Component)

The TLS client certificate chain.

Syntax

property TLSClientChain: TsbxCertificateList read get_TLSClientChain write set_TLSClientChain;

Remarks

Assign a certificate chain to this property to enable TLS client authentication in the component. Note that the client's end-entity certificate should have a private key associated with it.

This property is not available at design time.

TLSServerChain Property (PDFSigner Component)

The TLS server's certificate chain.

Syntax

property TLSServerChain: TsbxCertificateList read get_TLSServerChain;

Remarks

Use this property to access the certificate chain sent by the TLS server.

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

TLSSettings Property (PDFSigner Component)

Manages TLS layer settings.

Syntax

property TLSSettings: TsbxTLSSettings read get_TLSSettings;

Remarks

Use this property to tune up the TLS layer parameters.

This property is read-only.

TrustedCertificates Property (PDFSigner Component)

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 than that of 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.

ValidationLog Property (PDFSigner Component)

Contains the complete log of the certificate validation routine.

Syntax

property ValidationLog: String read get_ValidationLog;

Default Value

''

Remarks

Use this property to access the chain validation log produced by the component. The log can be very useful when investigating issues with chain validation, as it contains a step-by-step trace of the entire validation procedure.

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

Config Method (PDFSigner 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.

DoAction Method (PDFSigner Component)

Performs an additional action.

Syntax

function DoAction(ActionID: String; ActionParams: String): String;

Remarks

DoAction is a generic method available in every component. It is used to perform an additional action introduced after the product major release. The list of actions is not fixed, and may be flexibly extended over time.

The unique identifier of the action is provided in ActionID parameter. ActionParams contains a list of parameters for the action in the form of PARAM1=VALUE1;PARAM2=VALUE2;....

ExtractAsyncData Method (PDFSigner Component)

Extracts user data from the DC signing service response.

Syntax

function ExtractAsyncData(AsyncReply: String): String;

Remarks

Call this method before finalizing the asynchronous signing process to extract the data passed to the ExternalCrypto.Data property on the pre-signing stage.

The Data parameter can be used to pass some state or document identifier along with the signing request from the pre-signing to completion async stage.

Sign Method (PDFSigner Component)

Signs a PDF document.

Syntax

procedure Sign();

Remarks

Call this method to sign the document referenced by InputFile (or InputStream) property. The document will be signed with SigningCertificate as configured in Signature, and saved in OutputFile (OutputStream).

Use TrustedCertificates, KnownCertificates, RevocationCheck, OfflineMode and other properties of component to adjust chain validation parameters. After the signing, the chain validation log will be available in ValidationLog property.

SignAsyncBegin Method (PDFSigner 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.

AsyncState is a message of the distributed cryptography (DC) protocol. DC protocol is based on 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 control), which processes it and produces a matching signatures state. The async state produced by the server is then passed to the SignAsyncEnd method.

There are some conditions that should be met when signing PDF documents asynchronously. The advanced PDF signature levels, specifically, BES, EPES, and LTV, require that the 'signingCertificate' attribute is included in the signature. This can only be satisfied if either ExternalCrypto is configured to use asmdPKCS7 method, or the public copy of the signing certificate is provided on the pre-signing stage.

Please note that you will still be able to sign a document with asmdPKCS1 method and no public copy of the certificate provided (resulting in omission of the 'signingCertificate' attribute from the signature), however, most of the modern PDF processors will reject such signatures as invalid or non-compliant.

SignAsyncEnd Method (PDFSigner 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 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.

AsyncState is a message of the distributed cryptography (DC) protocol. DC protocol is based on 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 control), which processes it and produces a matching signatures state. The async state produced by the server is then passed to the SignAsyncEnd method.

SignExternal Method (PDFSigner Component)

Signs the document using an external signing facility.

Syntax

procedure SignExternal();

Remarks

Use this method to create a PDF signature using an external signing facility for the cryptographic computations. SignExternal delegates 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 the hash is computed, the component fires ExternalSign event which allows to pass the hash value for signing.

Update Method (PDFSigner Component)

Updates a signature.

Syntax

procedure Update();

Remarks

PDF signature may be updated from time to time by embedding newer/missing revocation information. The update approach is typically used to extend validity of an LTV signature.

Updating is typically accompanied with a document timestamping operation. Set TimestampServer to have the component obtain and embed a document timestamp for you.

Before calling this method, provide the signed document via InputFile (or InputStream) property. The updated document will be saved to OutputFile (or OutputStream).

ChainElementDownload Event (PDFSigner Component)

TBD.

Syntax

type TChainElementDownloadEvent = procedure (
  Sender: TObject;
  const Cert: String;
  const CACert: String;
  const Location: String
) of Object;

property OnChainElementDownload: TChainElementDownloadEvent read FOnChainElementDownload write FOnChainElementDownload;

Remarks

TBD.

ChainElementNeeded Event (PDFSigner Component)

TBD.

Syntax

type TChainElementNeededEvent = procedure (
  Sender: TObject;
  const Cert: String;
  const CACert: String
) of Object;

property OnChainElementNeeded: TChainElementNeededEvent read FOnChainElementNeeded write FOnChainElementNeeded;

Remarks

TBD.

DecryptionInfoNeeded Event (PDFSigner Component)

Requests decryption information during decryption, signing, or validation.

Syntax

type TDecryptionInfoNeededEvent = procedure (
  Sender: TObject;
  var CancelDecryption: Boolean
) of Object;

property OnDecryptionInfoNeeded: TDecryptionInfoNeededEvent read FOnDecryptionInfoNeeded write FOnDecryptionInfoNeeded;

Remarks

This event is fired when the component needs decryption information to be provided by the user.

Use EncryptionType property to identify the document encryption type used, and then set Password or DecryptionCertificate (DecryptionCertificates) properties accordingly.

The component fires this event repeatedly until suitable decryption information is provided. To terminate the operation, set CancelDecryption to true.

Error Event (PDFSigner Component)

Information about errors during signing/validation.

Syntax

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

property OnError: TErrorEvent read FOnError write FOnError;

Remarks

The event is fired in case of exceptional conditions during PDF processing.

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

ExternalDecrypt Event (PDFSigner Component)

Handles remote or external decryption.

Syntax

type TExternalDecryptEvent = procedure (
  Sender: TObject;
  const OperationId: String;
  const Algorithm: String;
  const Pars: String;
  const EncryptedData: String;
  var Data: String
) of Object;

property OnExternalDecrypt: TExternalDecryptEvent read FOnExternalDecrypt write FOnExternalDecrypt;

Remarks

Assign a handler to this event if you need to delegate a low-level decryption operation to an external, remote, or custom decryption engine. The handler receives a encrypted value in the EncryptedData parameter, and is expected to decrypt it and place the decrypted value into the Data parameter.

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

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

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

ExternalSign Event (PDFSigner 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 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 contain algorithm-dependent parameters.

The component uses base16 (hex) encoding for 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 a .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(); };

Notification Event (PDFSigner Component)

This event notifies the application about an underlying control flow event.

Syntax

type TNotificationEvent = procedure (
  Sender: TObject;
  const EventID: String;
  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 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:

DocumentLoadedReports the completion of PDF document processing by the component. Use the event handler to access document-related information, such as page number and document file details. The EventParam value passed with this EventID is empty.
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.

SignatureWidgetPrepareAnother copy of the signature widget needs to be configured. Use the event handler to configure individual widgets when creating multi-widget signatures. The Notification event with this event ID will be fired repeatedly until the LastSignatureWidget configuration property is set to true.

The EventParam value passed with this EventID is empty.

RecipientFound Event (PDFSigner Component)

Provides recipient certificate details to the application.

Syntax

type TRecipientFoundEvent = procedure (
  Sender: TObject;
  const IssuerRDN: String;
  SerialNumber: TBytes;
  SubjectKeyID: TBytes;
  CertFound: Boolean
) of Object;

property OnRecipientFound: TRecipientFoundEvent read FOnRecipientFound write FOnRecipientFound;

Remarks

The component fires this event when processing encrypted documents to report encryption certificate details to the user.

Subscribe to this event to obtain encryption certificate information and pass the corresponding certificate to the component via DecryptionCertificate (DecryptionCertificates) property.

TLSCertValidate Event (PDFSigner 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 ServerHostname: 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 TLSServerChain property to access the certificate chain. In general case, 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.

ValidationProgress Event (PDFSigner Component)

TBD.

Syntax

type TValidationProgressEvent = procedure (
  Sender: TObject;
  const ValidationEventType: String;

Fingerprint
TBytes

Contains the fingerprint (a hash imprint) of this certificate.

FriendlyName
String

Contains an associated alias (friendly name) of the certificate.

Handle
Int64

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());

HashAlgorithm
String

Specifies the hash algorithm to be used in the operations on the certificate (such as key signing)

Locations of OCSP (Online Certificate Status Protocol) services that can be used to check this certificate's validity, as recorded by the CA.

OCSPNoCheck
Boolean

TBD.

Origin
Integer

Returns the origin of this certificate.

PolicyIDs
String

Contains identifiers (OIDs) of the applicable certificate policies.

The Certificate Policies extension identifies a sequence of policies under which the certificate has been issued, and which regulate its usage.

PrivateKeyBytes
TBytes

Contains the certificate's private key. It is normal for this property to be empty if the private key is non-exportable.

PrivateKeyExists
Boolean

Indicates whether the certificate has an associated private key.

PrivateKeyExtractable
Boolean

Indicates whether the private key is extractable

PublicKeyBytes
TBytes

Contains the certificate's public key in DER format.

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

Returns raw CRL data in DER format.

CAKeyID
TBytes

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

EntryCount
Integer

Returns the number of certificate status entries in the CRL.

Handle
Int64

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

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

IssuerRDN
String

A collection of information, in the form of [OID, Value] pairs, uniquely identifying the CRL issuer.

Location
String

The URL that the CRL was downloaded from.

NextUpdate
String

The planned time and date of the next version of this CRL to be published.

SigAlgorithm
String

The public key algorithm that was used by the CA to sign this CRL.

TBS
TBytes

The to-be-signed part of the CRL (the CRL without the signature part).

ThisUpdate
String

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

Specifies the document ID for SignAsyncEnd() call

Use this property when working with multi-signature DCAuth requests and responses to uniquely identify documents signed within a larger batch. This value helps ASiCSigner 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 pre-signing (SignAsyncBegin) and completion (SignAsyncEnd) stages.

CustomParams
String

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

Data
String

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

ExternalHashCalculation
Boolean

Specifies whether the message hash is to be calculated at the external endpoint. Please note that this mode is not supported by all components. In particular, components operating with larger objects (PDFSigner, CAdESSigner, XAdESSigner) do not support it.

HashAlgorithm
String

Specifies the request's signature hash algorithm.

KeyID
String

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 extra protection layer for the protocol and diminishes the risk of 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

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
TsbxAsyncSignMethods

Specifies the asynchronous signing method. This is typically defined by the DC server capabilities and setup.

Available options:

asmdPKCS10
asmdPKCS71

Mode
TsbxExternalCryptoModes

Specifies the external cryptography mode.

Available options:

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

PublicKeyAlgorithm
String

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

Constructors

>

constructor Create();

Creates a new ExternalCrypto object with default field values.

OCSPResponse Type

Represents a single OCSP response originating from an OCSP responder.

Remarks

OCSP is a protocol that allows verification of certificate status in real-time, and is an alternative to Certificate Revocation Lists (CRL).

An OCSP response is a snapshot of the certificate status at a given time.

String

Caption of the signature widget field with information about the signature algorithm.

AlgorithmInfo
String

Information about the algorithm to be shown on the signature widget.

This property contains information about the algorithm to be displayed in the signature widget. This property is taken into account only if AutoText is False. If AutoText is True, information about the algorithm is generated automatically in the form of "Algorithm/Key size", e.g. "RSA/1024 bits".

psacComment2Commenting is allowed
psacAll3Form fill-in and commenting are allowed

AuthorName
String

A human-readable signer name. This is a PDF document property.

AutoFontSize
Boolean

Enables default widget font sizes.

The default font sizes are TitleFontSize: 8.77, TimestampFontSize: 4.89, SectionTitleFontSize: 7, and SectionTextFontSize: 5. Switch AutoFontSize off and use the respective properties to provide custom font sizes.

The standard unit of the symbol size in the default user space is 1/72 inch.

AutoPos
Boolean

Use the default widget position on a page.

The default position is aligned with the top right corner of the page. Switch this property off and use OffsetX and OffsetY to put the widget elsewhere on the page.

AutoSize
Boolean

Use the default widget size.

Switch this property off and use Height and Width properties to use a different size.

AutoStretchBackground
Boolean

Stretches the background picture to fit the signature widget.

AutoText
Boolean

Use the default widget descriptions.

The default texts are based on the information contained in the signing certificate. Set this property to false and use AlgorithmInfo, SignerInfo, and Header properties to generate customized descriptions.

BackgroundData
TBytes

Contains/takes the data of the signature widget background bitmap.

Assign the widget background data (in form of JPEG or JPEG2000 bytes) to this property.

BackgroundHeight
Integer

The height of the background image in pixels.

It is important that this property matches the exact size of the image when custom background is used.

BackgroundImageType
TsbxPDFWidgetImageTypes

The type of the image contained in BackgroundData. JPEG and JPEG2000 format are currently supported.

pwitJPEG20000JPEG 2000 format (supports transparency)
pwitJPEG1standard JPEG format (does not support transparency)
pwitCustom2Custom background format

BackgroundMask
TBytes

Contains the background image mask.

Masks provide means for marking transparent areas on your signature widgets. Specifically, a transparency mask tells PDF viewing apps which pixels of the signature widget should be kept visible and which should be rendered transparent instead.

In most cases, you will need a unique mask that is tailored for your signature widget image. This is something that you will need to create yourself basing on your preferences and the actual image design.

A mask is effectively a matrix of bits, with each bit corresponding to a pixel on your background bitmap. A bit is set to 1 if the corresponding pixel needs to be made transparent, or to 0 if it needs to be opaque.

To create the mask that can be passed to BackgroundMask, please follow the below procedure:

Go through the bitmap of your signature widget bitmap row to row, processing each row of pixels from left to right. For each row,

1. Start with an empty bit string.

2. For every pixel in a row, add '1' bit if you want it to be transparent, or '0' bit if you want it to be opaque.

3. Upon reaching the end of the row, append '0' bits to your bit string until the number of bits in it is a multiple of 8. This is because each row of pixels needs to be represented with a whole number of bytes.

4. Convert the bit string to a byte array by grouping every 8 bits into a byte.

Do the same for every row of pixels, and then concatenate the received byte arrays together. Pass the created byte array to SetSigBackgroundMask().

A small example. Imagine your image is 19 pixels wide and 3 pixels tall. Imagine you want to make it 'semi-transparent' by using a 'mesh' pattern. The mask will therefore look like this:

10101010 10101010 10100000 // first row

01010101 01010101 01000000 // second row

10101010 10101010 10100000 // third row

Note that the last 5 bits of each row are padding '0' bits and are ignored: you only need them to make each row contain a whole number of bytes. When converted to a byte string, this would look like

0xAA 0xAA 0xA0

0x55 0x55 0x40

0xAA 0xAA 0xA0

, or, if written as a byte array, (0xAA, 0xAA, 0xA0, 0x55, 0x55, 0x40, 0xAA, 0xAA, 0xA0): this is what you need to pass to SetSigBackgroundMask().

BackgroundStyle
TsbxPDFWidgetBackgroundStyles

The style of the signature widget background.

pwbsDefault uses the default image, pwbsNoBackground doesn't use background image at all, and pwbsCustom expects the application to provide a custom background image.

pwbsDefault0The default widget background
pwbsNoBackground1No (empty) background
pwbsCustom2Custom background (picture or vector)

BackgroundWidth
Integer

The width of the background image in pixels.

It is important that this property matches the exact size of the image when custom background is used.

Certification
Boolean

Specifies whether this is a Certification (MDP) signature.

Certification signatures is a feature that was used by earlier Acrobat versions. It has little use these days.

Returns a bit mask of the following options:

cvrBadData0x0001One or more certificates in the validation path are malformed

cvrRevoked0x0002One or more certificates are revoked

cvrNotYetValid0x0004One or more certificates are not yet valid

cvrExpired0x0008One or more certificates are expired

Available options:

cvtValid0The chain is valid

cvtValidButUntrusted1The chain is valid, but the root certificate is not trusted

cvtInvalid2The chain is not valid (some of certificates are revoked, expired, or contain an invalid signature)

cvtCantBeEstablished3The validity of the chain cannot be established because of missing or unavailable validation information (certificates, CRLs, or OCSP responses)

Use the ValidationLog property to access the detailed validation log.

ClaimedSigningTime
String

Returns or sets signature's creation time.

Use this property to get or set the signature creation time from the signer's computer. The claimed time, unlike ValidatedSigningTime does not originate from a trusted TSA and may be forfeited or wrong.

The time is provided in UTC.

Boolean

Whether the signature widget data should be compressed before saving.

ContactInfo
String

Contains signer's contact information. This is a PDF document property.

CoverageEndsAt
Integer

Indicates the offset in the PDF file where signature coverage ends.

PDF generators often use incremental updates to make changes in the documents. This may result in the signature only covering a part of the document (one of the past revisions), but not the subsequent changes.

Use this property to identify the offset where the signature coverage ends. One option is to compare it to the length of the whole document. Alternatively, use the GetSignedVersion() method of the PDFVerifier class to extract the exact revision that was signed.

CustomAppearance
TBytes

Contains custom widget description in raw PDF graphic operators format.

Use this property to provide a PDF stream describing the widget appearance.

CustomBackgroundContentStream
String

Specifies custom custom background content stream for pwbsCustom BackgroundStyle.

CustomData
TBytes

A uninterpreted custom data to save with the signature.

CustomVisualStatusMatrix
String

Defines the custom visual status matrix.

Use of this property makes sense only if a visual status icon is displayed over the signature (ShowVisualStatus). Prior to Acrobat 6, signature's visual appearance was modified with a status icon, e.g., "valid" or "invalid". The visual status matrix is used to position the icon in the signature widget. If CustomVisualStatusMatrix is empty, the value of '0.25 0 0 0.25 0 0' is used.

DateCaptionFormat
String

The format string used to display the signing time in the signature widget.

Leave this property empty (default value) to use the default formatting.

Specifies the full name of the signature field.

This is an internal identifier of a signature (such as Signature1) and is not meant to be human-readable.

Handle
Int64

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());

HashAlgorithm
String

Specifies the hash algorithm to be used for signing.

Boolean

Specifies whether to show the signature's status icon.

It is a good idea to avoid using the visual status icon, as described below:

According to the Digital Signature Appearances Adobe Acrobat SDK (May 2015), "Prior to Acrobat 6.0, signature appearances were manipulated at run-time in order to display the validity of the signature. The validity was shown as a graphic icon and with an additional, optional text message. The manipulated portions of the signature appearance were contained in layers n1, n3 and n4. Beginning with version 6, Acrobat does not maintain support for signature appearances that can be manipulated, though legacy signatures with these appearances may continue to display correctly. Use of layers n1, n3, and n4 is not recommended."

Ciphersuites
String

A list of ciphersuites separated with commas or semicolons. Each ciphersuite in the list may be prefixed with a minus sign (-) to indicate that the ciphersuite should be disabled rather than enabled. Besides the specific ciphersuite modifiers, this property supports the all (and -all) aliases that allow to blanketly enable or disable all ciphersuites at once.

Note: the list of ciphersuites provided to this property alters the baseline list of ciphersuites as defined by BaseConfiguration. Remember to start your ciphersuite string with -all; if you need to only enable a specific fixed set of ciphersuites. The list of supported ciphersuites is provided below:

Defines the elliptic curves to enable.

Extensions
String

Provides access to TLS extensions.

ForceResumeIfDestinationChanges
Boolean

Whether to force TLS session resumption when the destination address changes.

PreSharedIdentity
String

Defines the identity used when the PSK (Pre-Shared Key) key-exchange mechanism is negotiated.

PreSharedKey
String

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

PreSharedKeyCiphersuite

RenegotiationAttackPreventionMode
TsbxRenegotiationAttackPreventionModes

Selects 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

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.

crcNone (0)No revocation checking
crcAuto (1)Automatic mode selection. Currently this maps to crcAnyOCSPOrCRL, but it may change in the future.
crcAllCRL (2)Check all provided CRL endpoints for all chain certificates.
crcAllOCSP (3)Check all provided OCSP endpoints for all chain certificates.
crcAllCRLAndOCSP (4)Check all CRL and OCSP endpoints for all chain certificates.
crcAnyCRL (5)At least one CRL check for every certificate in the chain must succeed.
crcAnyOCSP (6)At least one OCSP check for every certificate in the chain must succeed.
crcAnyCRLOrOCSP (7)At least one CRL or OCSP check for every certificate in the chain must succeed. CRL endpoints are checked first.
crcAnyOCSPOrCRL (8)At 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 faster OCSP route and only demand one source to succeed) is a good choice for most of typical validation environments. The 'crcAll*' modes are much stricter, and may be used in scenarios where bulletproof validity information is essential.

Specifies whether to check issuer (CA) certificates when signing certificate is invalid.

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.

Specifies if hardened Key generation should be used when an AES-256 encryption algorithm and password encryption are used.

IgnoreOCSPNoCheckExtension:   Whether OCSP NoCheck extension should be ignored.

Set this property to false 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 TrustedCertificates property) are considered trusted.

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