Digital signatures with the webPDF portal

The webPDF portal makes it easy to digitally sign your PDF documents and its integrated functions fulfill the requirements of both the German Signature Act (SigG) and the European directives on digital signatures. The addition of a digital signature also lets you do document-related work pertaining to legal matters. And, webPDF signatures satisfy all the statutory stipulations for long-term preservation and archiving.

First, upload the PDF document you want to sign in the web PDF portal. Then click the [Digitally sign document] button under Functions on the workspace to attach the signature (the button is underlined in red in the illustration).
