(Tcl) Sign a PDF using SmartCard or HSM (Hardware Security Module)

See more PDF Signatures Examples

This example demonstrates how to a sign a PDF using a smartcard or HSM (hardware security module). As of the time of writing this example (in Chilkat v9.5.0.85), Chilkat only supports smartcards and HSM's on the Windows platform. This will change in the future (this example is being written on 22-Jan-2021).

Note: This example requires Chilkat v9.5.0.85 or greater.

# This example requires the Chilkat API to have been previously unlocked.
# See Global Unlock Sample for sample code.

set pdf [new_CkPdf]

# Load a PDF to be signed.
# The "hello.pdf" is available at https://chilkatsoft.com/hello.pdf
set success [CkPdf_LoadFile $pdf "qa_data/pdf/hello.pdf"]

# Use a font scale of 10.0
CkJsonObject_UpdateString $json "appearance.fontScale" "10.0"

# In this example, the appearance of the digital signature will contain three lines:
# 1) The signing certificate's common name
# 2) The current date/time
# 3) Some arbitrary text.
# The keyword "cert_cn" is replaced with the Certificate's Subject Common Name.
# The keyword "current_dt" is replaced with the current date/time.
# Any number of appearance text lines can be added.
CkJsonObject_UpdateString $json "appearance.text[0]" "Digitally signed by: cert_cn"
CkJsonObject_UpdateString $json "appearance.text[1]" "current_dt"
CkJsonObject_UpdateString $json "appearance.text[2]" "The crazy brown fox jumps over the lazy dog."

# Use a certificate on a smartcard or USB token.
set cert [new_CkCert]

# Load the certificate on the smartcard currently in the reader (or on the USB token).
# Pass an empty string to allow Chilkat to automatically choose the CSP (Cryptographi Service Provider).
# See Load Certificate on Smartcard for information about explicitly selecting a particular CSP.

# display a dialog for the PIN.
