Electronic Signatures and Infrastructures (ESI); PDF Advanced Electronic Signature Profiles; Part 3: PAdES Enhanced - PAdES-BES and PAdES-EPES Profiles
|Publication Date:||1 July 2009|
The present document profiles the use of PDF Signatures specified in ISO 32000-1  with an alternative signature encoding to support signature formats equivalent to the signature forms CAdES-BES, CAdES-EPES and CAdES-T as specified in TS 101 733 .
The PAdES-BES profile supports basic CMS (RFC 3852 ) signature features as specified TS 102 778-2  with the additional protection against signing certificate substitution.
The PAdES-EPES profile extends the PAdES-BES profile to include signature policies.
Both profiles, PAdES-BES and PAdES-EPES allow the inclusion of a signature time stamp creating a signature similar to the CAdES-T form.
The present document does not repeat the base requirements of the referenced standards, but instead aims to disambiguate between the techniques used in the different referenced standards. These profiles are intended to be used by a signer.
The present document is part of a series of profiles for advanced electronic signature formats applied to PDF documents. General information the series of profiles is specified in TS 102 778-1 .
The requirements specified in the present document take precedence over those specified in ISO 32000-1  and TS 101 733 .
