I'm working on a signer verifier.
For one of signature, i had a sig file that is encoding in base64.
for decoding this sig file i used this fonction :
  PEMPROC : TelPEMProcessor;
  i : integer;
  FBASE64Buff : Array of Byte;
    PEMProc:= TelPEMProcessor.Create(nil);
    if (i=0) then
      fBase64Encoded := True;
      fBase64Encoded := False;

Now i have a other type of signature that is encode with other encoding than base 64. There is lines with 76 caracters. I think it is quotedPrintable but i'm not sure.

How can i decode this type of signature ? Is there a other component
or other method with i can decode base64 and quotedprintable or other ?
thanks for your help

SecureBlackbox includes internal non-documented functions to work with Base64 (Base64Encode, Base64Decode in SBUtils.pas). Unfortunately, there is no support for quoted-printable encoding (except that is available as a part of MIMEBlackbox) available.

I'm note sure it is a qotedprintable encoding. I'm joining the file + sig file to this message.
Windows can open this .p7s file, could you said me if i can used a component of eldos to read this type of signature ?

Your p7s file is a detached PKCS#7 signature, encoded in Base64. You need to first decode it using B64Decode function mentioned above, then use TElMessageVerifier class to verify this signature.

Sorry but i need your help for using this fonction. I can't decode.

i use it :
var fsig : file;
    fsigbuff, fBase64Buf : Array of byte;
    outsizebuff : integer;
AssignFile(FSig, aValue);
Reset(FSig, 1);
SetLength(FsigBuff, FileSize(FSig));
BlockRead(FSig, FsigBuff[0], Length(FsigBuff));

I have acess violation on base64decode fonction.
Do you see my error ?

Of course you get - you have not allocated output buffer and didn't provide it's size to Base64Decode.

thanks, effectively it works better when i allocated :)

for other user if they're needed:
        if Base64Decode(@FSigBuff[0],length(FSigBuff),@FBASE64Buff[0],outsizebuf)= BASE64_DECODE_OK then

A other question :
Is exist a other component like elmessagesigner and elmessageverifier for xades or xmldsig signature ?

You have a license for Professional package, which includes XMLBlackbox package (component to perform XML encryption and decryption and to create and verify XML signatures). Please check samples in Samples\XMLBlackbox folder.
