3 1 Getting started This guide explains how to set up your computer so that you can apply digital signatures to PDF documents and check those of others. This guide assumes you already have an Entrust certificate. For instructions on obtaining a certificate from Entrust Managed Services PKI, see one of the following guides available from the Resources tab of based on your role. If you are an: administrator, see the Entrust Managed Services PKI Administrator Guide end-user, see one of the following based on your organization s deployment: Getting an Entrust certificate using Entrust Authority Administration Services Getting an Entrust certificate using Entrust Entelligence Security Provider Note: Procedures are based on the 9.0 versions of Adobe Reader and Adobe Acrobat Professional. While previous versions are similar, the procedures are not identical. For instructions involving older product versions, see the Adobe documentation. This chapter includes the following topics: Configuring Adobe products for Windows integration on page 2 Automatically verifying digital signatures in received PDF files on page 6 1

4 Configuring Adobe products for Windows integration If Adobe does not recognize the certificate of the sender of a signed PDF document, a security warning dialog box appears. To avoid this, you must configure your Adobe product for Windows integration. When you created your certificate, you selected to have your organization s root certificate added to the Windows trusted certificate store and to automatically trust any certificate issued by your organization s certification authority (CA). When you turn on Windows integration within Adobe, Adobe checks the Windows certificate store to see if it should trust the certificate. This creates a trust relationship within your organization. Note: Your IT department might have already configured your Adobe product for Windows integration. Ask your administrator. Alternatively, you can follow the procedure below to check. To configure Adobe Acrobat Professional or Adobe Reader for Windows integration 1 In Adobe Acrobat or Reader, select Edit > Preferences and click Security. The Security pane appears. 2 Managed Services PKI Using Entrust certificates with Adobe PDF files and forms Document issue: 1.0

7 Select Validating Signatures if it does not contravene your organization s security policy. If your organization is certifying documents, select Validating Certified Documents if it does not contravene your organization s security policy.

If a document is certified, the following icon appears in the information bar at the top of the PDF: 5 Click OK. 6 Click OK. You successfully configured your Adobe product for Windows integration. Getting started 5

8 Automatically verifying digital signatures in received PDF files You can configure Adobe Acrobat Professional and Adobe Reader to automatically verify signatures in PDF files when you open them. If you want to manually validate signatures (one signature at a time or all signatures at once) on a case-by-case basis, see Manually verifying signatures on a case-by-case basis on page 21. Signature validation verifies: the signer s identity, by confirming that the signer s certificate or its root certificate is trusted by Adobe and is still valid (not expired or revoked when the signature was added). the document s integrity, by confirming that the document was not altered after the signature was added. Note: If the signature is not trusted after validation, it must be added to the list of trusted identities. For more information, see Adding a signer to the trusted list on page 14. Complete the following procedure to automatically verify signatures. To automatically verify signatures 1 In Adobe Reader or Adobe Acrobat, select Edit > Preferences and click Security.

Once signed, the document message bar includes one of the following: a check mark indicating the signature is trusted a question mark indicating the signature cannot be traced back to a trusted root or the certificate revocation list (CRL) cannot be found If you configured your product for Windows integration as described in To configure Adobe Acrobat Professional or Adobe Reader for Windows integration on page 2, you should not see a question mark in the message bar for documents signed by individuals within your organization (those whose certificates were issued by your organization s CA). If you want to trust the signature of someone outside of your organization, you must add the signer to the trusted list. For more information, see Adding a signer to the trusted list on page 14. a red X indicating the signature is invalid In the procedure below, ensure the Tasks toolbar is visible in Adobe Acrobat.

16 Adding a signer to the trusted list If you configured your Adobe product for Windows integration as described in To configure Adobe Acrobat Professional or Adobe Reader for Windows integration on page 2, Adobe automatically trusts all signatures associated with certificates issued by your company s certification authority (CA). However, if you receive a PDF from someone you know and trust, but Adobe does not trust the signature because the associated certificate is not trusted, you can add the signer to the list of Adobe trusted identities.

You can validate a single signature in a PDF, or validate all signatures in a PDF document at one.
