  3. Digitally signed documents are not conformant to ETSI standards

    ETSI signature conformance checker at https://signatures-conformance-checker.etsi.org reports some problems with digital signatures created in Acrobat configured for CAdES-Equivalent default signing format:

    57. Error: Contents/CAdESSignature/content/signedData/signerInfos/signerInfo[1]/signedAttrs/attribute[3]/attrValues/essSigningCertificateV2[1]-{CheckSchemaForChildren}

    Children order and number DO NOT MATCH specification

    Specification: certs+

    Elements found: certs policies

    Error indication (^ appears at the end of the last correct child): certs^ policies

    64. Error: Contents/CAdESSignature/content/signedData/signerInfos/signerInfo[1]/signedAttrs/attribute[4]/attrValues/NotKnownComponent[1]-{ForAllTheChildrenDo}

    An unknown component has been reached. Consequently, its children and their processing are unknown to the TLCC. No further checks will be done to this component

    Error #57 relates to the fact, that according to ETSI EN 319 122-1, clause 5.2.2.3, policies field shall NOT…

  4. Acrobat adds unusable OCSP to documents with long-term validation

    Due to OCSP caching, Acrobat most of the time adds stale OCSP to digitally signed documents with long-term validation (LTV)

    PAdES-LT and -LTA profiles require signature to include qualified timestamp and OCSP's thisUpdate time must be AFTER signature time as certified by qualified timestamp - otherwise OCSP can't be used for signature validation.

    Thus, when adding LTV data to signed documents, Acrobat should always check:

    1) whether the signature contains qualified timestamp
    2) whether OCSP's thisUpdate time is AFTER the timestamp time (it's not allowed to consider any clock skew here since qualified timestamp servers and OCSP responders should be…

  5. Password copy paste capability

    Allow copy paste of the user's password into the password window.

    Currently, this cannot be done, so the user has to pull up a password manager (or scrap of paper with the password) and transcribe the password.

  7. PDF will redact or self-destruct after fixed time limit

    When sharing PDF files the file should have the built-in function that after a certain time-limit e.g. when information is out of date or to protect IP the contents redact or self-destruct.

    Pairing this with read-only, no download functionality will protect the content from being improperly used

  11. Opt-out from Data Collection

    Can we use Windows group policy to opt-out on data collection for users for privacy reasons? By default it's set to opt-in for a user before they log on but we would like to opt-out without the users' intervention.

    When the OCSP response used to check the validity of a eIDAS QES signature certificate is signed using a different root certificate than used for signing the user certificate, the signature validity is shown as UNKNOWN, although this procedure is in conformity with the European Union eIDAS regulation. Currently, this problem occurs with signature cards of the German Health Network trust center. More information (in German) can be found at https://www.intarsys.de/faq/Hinweise-validierung-reader.

  14. Unable to highlight and note digitally signed docmument; need to add header/footer.

    Need to be able to highlight text and add header/footer/file name to digitally signed documents (with the option of keeping it clean). This DOES NOT IMPAIR content or security of the file and does not change/invalidate the document execution. Please note, this precisely is a huge issue with digitally signed documents in that they are impossible to work with afterward For reasons of confidentiality, I can not attach an example file. ***My idea: allow highlight/notation/header/footer BUT INCLUDE A FEATURE: a "send with/without notations" and a "print with/without notes" feature. It would make these files far more manageable post-execution in that…

  18. Acrobat DC more signatures and intials options

    Create and manage multiple signatures.
    Unfortunately there is only the function to add a signature once and an initial once.

    Unfortunately, only one signature and only one initial is not sufficient in this case.

  20. Signatures can not be verified (BUG)

    We are currently experiencing a problematic issue concerning validating signatures in PDF files created with Adobe PRO. We are using a third party platform that places the signatures (3 signers) and its audittrail into the PDF with a Hash. All signings are placed succesfully but after i download the file again it will not validate the signatures because the file has been changed according to Adobe. This, however, is not the case and Foxit PDF does succesfully validate the signatures. After some research we have learned that Adobe registers a change between the placing the last signature and the time…
