Digital Signature appearance subfields of DN

Post by 3tgf68d2shs » Wed Oct 13, 2021 8:24 am

Within the digital signature you can choose what to display e.g. Name, Distinguished Name via sign templates. The name attribute maps to the Common Name (CN) of the certificate and the Distinguished Name to the DN of the certificate. The DN can contain different subfields, like organization unit (OU), email address and unstructured name (OID 1.2.840.113549.1.9).

Is it possible to show subfields of the DN in the signature appearance? Reason is that our employees name is given in the unstructured name and not in the common name (CN).

Tried this as well with adobe and low-level configuration of appearances.acrodata but failed. On a code basis it should be easy to replace subjectDN by subjectDN[unstructuredName], shouldn't it?

Would be great, if this feature would work with PDF-XChange.

Kind Regards, Ric.

Hi 3tgf68d2shs,

Unfortunately there are no such option at the moment to choose which subfields are included in the DN field.

I have put in a feature request for this option with our developers, I can't make any promises on when it could be implemented but the request is in.

While not for external use, referring to RT#5755: Feature request :: Editor :: Digital Signature appearance subfields of DN will allow any support staff member to get you a status update.

Hi Chris,

thank you for taking this as feature request. I guess it is hard to display all subfields of the Distinguished Name in the GUI, as type and count differs over organizations. For us a configuration below the GUI (e.g. registry keys, config files) would be totally fine.
