PKCS7

extends Object

   ↳ com.pspdfkit.signatures.contents.PKCS7

Class Overview

A representation of a PKCS7 structure that can be contained in a digital signature field.

For example, you can use an instance of this class when you want to sign a document that was already prepared for deferred digital signing. One example scenario may be the following:

  1. Prepare a PDF document with a digital signature form field by calling prepareFormFieldForSigningAsync(SignerOptions).
  2. Embed the data contents of this container by calling embedSignatureInFormFieldAsync(SignatureFormField, SignatureContents, OutputStream). In your custom implementation of the SignatureContents interface that you pass to this method, you can return getPKCS7EncodedData() from inside the signData(byte[]) method.

Public Methods

public static PKCS7 create (byte[] digest, KeyStore.PrivateKeyEntry privateKey, HashAlgorithm hashAlgorithm)

Creates an instance of a PKCS7 container.

Parameters
digest The digest data that will be cryptographically protected by this PKCS7. For digital signatures this is typically hash of the PDF document except the signature contents.
privateKey The private key that will be used to encrypt the digest.
hashAlgorithm The hash algorithm that was used to hash the digest argument.

public byte[] getPKCS7EncodedData ()

Returns PKCS7 container as raw byte array.
