Is it possible to include the signer's identity (Name, E-mail) in an XAdES signature?

Thank you for contacting us.

Its not possible to include it directly like its done with production place etc. You can include signing certificate which it turn includes identity information.

We want to setup a central signing service like Adobe EchoSign, but also for XML. We are looking for a way to sign the XML with a server certificate and somehow link an identity to the signature. It seems impossible.

I'm afraid there is no standard way for doing this.
If it is for your personal usage, you can create a custom signed object with user information. It could be outside a signature and referenced (signed) by a signature, or inside a custom ds:Object element.
