The only way to archive a generic signature is to convert it to advanced (PAdES) signature by performing appropriate upgrade actions (adding DSS and document timestamp elements).

I already know how to archive PAdES signatures (add validation data and document timestamp), that is not problem. Can I use SB to convert standard signature to enhanced? If there is a way, can you give me a hint? Thank you.

To be able to upgrade generic signatures, you should handle them with TElPDFAdvancedPublicKeySecurityHandler objects (and not TElPDFPublicKeySecurityHandler ones). A security handler object for a particular signature is created on the basis of the order in which different handler types are registered in the PDFBlackbox engine. By default, standard security handler has a priority over the advanced handler when processing generic signatures. Please run the following code to shift it down the list:

// Unregistering both security handlers.


// Registering both handlers back in the order we need.
