  1. Requesting that the Certificate Key Usage be presented on the "Sign with a Digital ID" prompt. Being able to see the key usage would ensure users are picking the certificate with Non-Repudiation in environments where users have two certificates with Digital Signatures.

    Attached is an example of the current prompt and an example of the desired prompt.

  4. I am requesting all professionals that work with me, my accountants, property manager, banks, etc, to not use Adobe because when they send me a "locked" or "password protected" file, I cannot create an unlocked version on my side. They all come up with random passwords and it is impossible over the years to access my documents when they are locked with a hundred different security codes. I am sure a hacker can access these documents faster and better than I who have paid accountants and the like to create them. Please, please, allow the recipient to create an unlocked,…

  5. There should be multiple options to password protect a pdf, not just read/edit.

    When you make a pdf that is password protected, you have to make sure that whoever you are sending it to, understands how to enter the password, change the password and/or turn off the password. Not everyone uses Acrobat.

    To remove a password, you don't have to go into File > Properties and click the “Security” tab. Click the “Security Method” box, select “No Security”, and click “OK” to remove the password.

    Not everyone understands Acrobat. When you password protect a pdf, there should be an option…

  6. I sent a document to be signed. When I looked at it afterwards, it didn't look signed. When I tried to amend it, it wouldn't let me because it said it had been signed.

  7. Currently even if a document is password protected, whoever receives the document to esign has complete access to the document without providing a password or access code. This defeats the purpose of protecting the document with a password when a person can just click it open when asked to review & sign. Once a person has already viewed the document (just by clicking review & sign) and signed the document, then they can download the signed document and at that point it becomes password protected to access it, which again is already too late, as the document has already been…

  8. Steps to reproduce - Click sign in top right corner of desktop app

    Expected result - give a dialog to sign in

  10. 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

  11. 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…

  12. 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.

  14. 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

  20. 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.
