iText DITO expands into Cloud Infrastructure and Platform Services (CIPS), furthering its mission to deliver a highly-performant solution for organizations to intelligently manage information, while also reducing developer workload.
In May 2021, a group of researchers at the Ruhr University Bochum (RUB) published an IEEE symposium paper on problems with certification signatures in PDF. The authors’ findings are summarized on the PDF Insecurity website. Since iText’s products are often used as part of digital signing workflows (including to create certification signatures), we felt compelled to comment. In this blog post, we’ll take you through some background on these new attacks, and explain what you can do about them.
Securing and automating digital document workflows is increasingly important in the modern business world. A crucial part of creating secure digital signatures is generating public and private keys for signing, and cloud providers such as Amazon, Google, and Microsoft now offer highly-secure cryptographic key management services. Since iText is used by many businesses and signing services to integrate secure digital signatures into PDFs, this step-by-step article shows developers how to use iText 7 and the AWS KMS APIs to generate a digital signature and add it to a PDF document.
14th February 2020... It’s a date which has been carved in the minds of our developers here at iText for several months now. And it’s not because it’s a day we want to spend with our loved ones at home. It’s because that’s the day the iText library, which we are working on daily, marks its 20th birthday: Feb 14, 2000 is the day when we released our first lines of code!
Now, twenty years on, we’re at iText Core version 7.1.10!
Introducing a new iText 7 add-on, pdfRender, which allows you to render PDFs as images. Powered by IDRsolutions, pdfRender integrates with iText 7 to enable the display of PDF content as easily as displaying an image.
We are excited to announce the general availability of iText DITO v. 1.2. This latest release of iText’s template engine contains several new features and optimizations of existing capabilities, all targeted towards the realization of iText DITO’s mission: To provide a high-convenience PDF generation product that combines WYSIWYG template design in the browser, with a powerful PDF generation engine built to handle enterprise-level requirements and volumes.
