I have a digital ID and I´d like to create a public key and send to my partners to allow them viewing my encripted documents


How to create a public id?


Thanks a lot

    Hi Gustavo,


    • Select either the Advanced > Security Settings menu item (in Acrobat), or the Document > Security Settings menu item (in Reader)
    • Select Digital IDs from the top of the tree view on the left side of the Security Settings dialog
    • Select the digital ID you want to use from the list view on the right side of the Security Settings dialog
    • Click the Export toolbar button (the gold arrow icon) on the Security Settings dialog
    • Follow the on screen instructions to either save or e-mail the FDF file. If you would rather use a P7C file select the Save the data to a file option, click the Next button and select *p7c from the Save As Type drop-down list.


    As a side note, other people having the public-key certificate that corresponds to your digital ID allows them to encrypt a file for you to open. If you want someone to be able to open a PDF file that you've previously encrypted  using Certificate Security, you need to re-encrypted it using their public-key certificate file.
