Sorry for the delay in response.
There have been some changes to digital certificates to use for signature: A: Changes Across Releases — Digital Signatures Guide for IT You may check with Smart Card Vendor if that certificate falls under the criteria mention in the link.
Let me know if that helps your any.
this is an absolute useless reply. if u can't answer, plz don't.
there is no info either on what to do or what to do.
i tried many different usb tokens, but acrobat reader do not recognise them all are recognised and shown in the mac system in keychain.
acrobat can create new digital ids, but token based ones are just not detected at all.
I am not sure whether you are following the right steps to create your ID or not. You may check this help page: Certificate-based signatures, Adobe Acrobat and try one more time.
Also, It seems you haven't read the changes were made in Adobe Reader/Acrobat. Which I was trying to tell you in my earlier response that it could be an issue also.
"Certificate filtering changes only:
The recent expansion of digital certificate usage has prompted Adobe to change the processing of Key Usage (KU) and Extended Key Usage (EKU) certificate extensions when performing digital signature creation in Acrobat products. This change means the following:
- Acrobat products better conform to RFC 5280 (Internet X.509 Public Key Infrastructure Certificate and Certificate Revocation List (CRL) Profile).
- Existing credentials (certificates) that do not adhere to the requirements in the following table may no longer be used for signing with Acrobat or Reader. Invalid certificates no longer appear in the certificate drop-down list in the Sign Document dialog."
Also, I would like to mention we don't have control over those USB token basis signature devices. If the devices you are using are not working with Adobe Reader, you may contact those Vendors and seek their expertise as well. If they found an issue their developers may contact us.
I am not interested in creating new id. That I can do already.
I am trying to attach DSC from token.
Sadly, there is not much I can suggest in this case.
I would suggest contacting USB Token vendor for this issue.
