I'm developing a .NET application that at some point will need to add X.509 v3 certificates to existing PDFs.
I need to add the certificate to the PDF and add a visible signature (image).

What packages from the SecureBlackbox do I need?

Do I need just the PKIBlackbox to do this?
Or I aldo need the PDFBlackbox?

Thanks in advance! :)

Thank you for contacting us.

You need PDFBlackbox to perform your task.

Just a side note: you will also need HTTPBlackbox if you plan to timestamp your signatures with external HTTP(S)-driven TSAs.

Just the PDFBlackbox or PDFBlackbox + PKIBlackbox?

PKIBlackbox is needed if you want to generate your own certificates or create PAdES signatures.

Our client is going to buy a company digital certificate from a certification company, so I won't generate the certificate and PDFBlackBox will be enough then.

Thanks for your support.
