Using Delphi XE3 and SecureBlackBox 13.0.277 I wat to validate signed PDF's.

With de PAdESDemo I only get "valid" when I add
handler.IgnoreChainValidationErrors := True;
in procedure TfrmMain.RefreshSignatureInfo

I attach the log from PAdESdemo, if you want I can also send you the PDF I use for testing this.

I hope you can tell me what is wrong with the chain and what either the signer or myself can do to correctly validate the chain.

With regards,

Peet Terluin
