Support of Smartcard Reader


I have the following question regarding the GroupDocs.Signature Product Family:

  • Does the Signature Framework support the digital signing process of a PDF document via a smartcard reader with smartcard + PIN? In other words, the smartcard reader is connected to the PC and once the card gets plugged-in and you start the digital signature process, the card gets can be used for creating a digital signature?



GroupDocs.Signature doesn’t provide any built-in feature to sign the documents via smartcard reader. Instead, it provides you with a set of properties that you can use to digitally sign the PDF documents. These properties include Reason, Digital Certificate, Contact, Location, Password, etc. You can set these values while signing the document. For more details and code samples, you may have a look at the following documentation articles:
