Is there a use case for self signed pdf instead of using CDS/AATL CA?

Hi,

Is there a use case(s) where someone would want to use a software to generate certified pdf with a self generated key since self signed pdf will not be automatically recognized by acrobat?

Thanks,
Tom

Maybe one will find some uses. For example, compatibility testing.

Hi Tom,

A scenario with internal CA or even a collection of self-signed certificates is relatively popular in closed corporate environments where signers and verifiers set up key trust explicitly without relying on external CAs (effectively forming an OpenPGP-like infrastructure).
