OPENSOURCE CONTRIBUTION - PDF DOCUMENT SIGNATURE VALIDATION

March 02, 2016
A Caixa Mágica opensource contribution is available as of today: it was integrated in the Linux PDF support library poppler.

It is now possible to verify signed PDF documents on the Linux Desktop without using proprietary or obsolete software.

This effort was started in a 2002 summer internship and was developed by our internal eID team in collaboration with Poppler upstream developers.

It's important to note that the bug report asking for this feature was opened almost 8 years ago [1] and this way we hope that soon this feature will be available in several Linux PDF readers such as Okular, Evince, etc.
