Using Entrust signaturesAdded by IBM on October 10, 2012 | Version 1 (Original)
|The Entrust engine uses Entrust certificates rather than RSA certificates. As such, users must have Entrust software installed on their computers to access those certificates.
To create a signature button that uses the Entrust engine, set the following parameters in the signformat option:
For example, the generic XFDL code for a button using the Entrust engine looks like this:
- MIME type — The MIME type that is used to store the signature information. You should always use application/vnd.xfdl.
- engine — The name of the signing engine to use. In this case, Entrust.
- delete — Optional. This flag sets whether the user can delete the signature. By default, users can delete all signatures. If you want to prevent a signature from being deleted, set this to off.
- If the form is opened in Webform Server, then signing an Entrust signature requires the use of the Webform Server plugin/ActiveX control. The plugin/ActiveX control is automatically downloaded to the browser when it is needed.
