Hi there. Intend to user SecureBlackbox (XMLBlackbox) in PHP application to sign a XML file generating a XAdEs-X-L. Also intend to use A1 certificate, at server side, in order to sign the XML files generate by my PHP application. The server will have the pin number for the A1 certificate. So , before buying the library, is this set-up ok? Intend to use the XMLBlackbox part only. Best regards

Thank you for contacting us.

It's not exactly clear, what you call "A1 certificate". Is this the certificate provided in the file or on the hardware device (smartcard, cryptotoken)?

Sincerely yours

A1 certificate is a software implemented certificate. As its contra-part is a A3 certificate (hardware as usb pen-drve, smart card)

e-CPF type 3: in this version, data is generated, stored and processed in a smart card or token, making it inviolable and unique and providing mobility. Only the person with access to the card password or token can use it. This service is valid for three years.

e-CPF type 1: this one is generated and stored in a personal computer, without any smart card or token. It's advisable to be stored in only one computer and protected by a password. This version is valid for one year.

Thank you for clarification. In this case PHP edition should work without any problems. Please be sure to evaluate its suitability to your environment before committing to purchase. In particular please ensure that you can add an extension, provided with SecureBlackbox, on your server.

Sincerely yours
