This is a hotfix release on top of iText for .NET 7.0.2; they are functionally identical, except that the following blocking issue was fixed: ASP.NET users reported the following sequence of fatal exceptions when using iText for .NET 7.0.2 in their web applications: System.TypeInitializationException: The type initializer for 'iText.IO.Util.ResourceUtil' threw an exception. System.NotSupportedException: The invoked member is not supported in a dynamic assembly. The cause of this was a functional change in 7.0.2 to allow loading of certain resources in dependencies, but this change did not...

Last week there was a huge buzz surrounding SHA-1. The hashing algorithm has been deemed unsafe for many years, but is still used in outdated software for digital signatures. Recently a team of researchers was able to break SHA-1, proving definitively that the algorithim should be replaced . The attack was orchestrated on a PDF file that contained an image, which they exploited to generate a collision. A collision can be quite scary as it allows an attacker to generate two files that have the same digest value. If a victim was to sign one of these files using SHA-1, the signed digest would be...
pdfDebug is an add on component that is available for iText 7. Its basic function is to allow a programmer to see inside of a PDF while it is being created. This allows for advanced debugging on programs that use iText to create or manipulate PDFs. Interested? Let’s take a look at how it works with an example. To start, we created a simple program whose goal is to create a pdf that has four pages, with one phrase on each page. Page 1: Hello World, Page 2: Hello People, Page 3: Hello Everyone. In addition, we want the headers Item 1, Item 2, or Item 3 depending on the page which it appears on...
