Adobe Acrobat Reader X: Digital Signatures and Thales Authentication

The combination of eToken and Adobe Acrobat enables the strongest utilization of digital signatures. Within the Acrobat program, user should perform exactly the same process to digitally sign or secure its documents while picking the digital certificate that stored in the eToken. This process enables users to create certified documents that authenticate their identity and validate the integrity. Since users carry their certificates and credentials with them, eToken provides easy and fully portable way to access documents.

Adobe ADT Code Signing

Adobe AIR Developer Tool (ADT) is a multi-purpose, command-line tool for developing AIR applications. ADT is a Java program included in the AIR SDK. The SDK includes a script file for invoking ADT.

Digitally signing your AIR installation files with a certificate issued by a recognized certification authority (CA) provides significant assurance to your users that the application they are installing has not been accidentally or maliciously altered and identifies you as the signer (publisher). AIR displays the publisher name during installation when the AIR application has been signed with a certificate that is trusted, or which chains to a certificate that is trusted on the installation computer.

Using a Thales Luna HSM or HSM on Demand service to generate the RSA keys for Adobe ADT provides the following benefits:

  • Secure generation, storage and protection of the signing private keys on FIPS 140-2 level 3 validated hardware
  • Full life cycle management of the keys
  • Access to the HSM audit trail with Luna HSM
  • Take advantage of cloud services with confidence
  • Significant performance improvements by off-loading cryptographic operations from signing servers
