For each file that I try to sign the certificate is asking for password. The certificate I'm using is of type A1, but the repository is installed on windows. Not so with certificates of the type A3 (token or smart card). This certificate requires an application to manage it, it installs a DLL in C: \ Program Files \ Box \ CSP \ cefcert.dll. Is there any way around this problem?

Thank you for contacting us.

Usually this problem appears because SecureBlackbox involves CryptAPI to work with certificates stored in Windows stores because their secret keys are not exportable and can't be accessed directly, so a password window is out of our control - it is displayed by Windows.

Why this does not happen with certificates A3 token that is also installed on the windows repository. The password window that appears is shown for the DLL certificate

This windows is shown by a PKCS#11 driver (a DLL). Do you use the same tokens for A1 and A3 certificates?
