Adobe Acrobat 10 Digital Signature Verification

Posted on 2013-09-11

I am finalizing a Job Description Manual in Adobe Acrobat 10. When completed, the manual will contain over 40 digital signatures. As each person signs the document, it takes successively longer for Adobe to validate all previous signatures. Is there a setting in Adobe that will prevent it from validating all previous digital signatures when you apply a new digital signature? I'm only about half way through getting personnel to sign and it is taking over three minutes to validate all the previous signatures.

I´m afraid it is not possible, at least using the default signature method that you set on

Preferences > Security > Advanced

I´m not aware of a plugin that would offer that, but seems to be the only way that may be possible to do it.

What you can do, however, is speed this up. However that will require to change some settings that ideally will need to be reverted after the signatures are all collected. I understand that depending on your scenario, how many computers are involved and so on, it may not be an option. But Ill mention it anyway.

You can start by disabling revocation checking. And to really speed things up, set the signers certificate as trusted anchors (certificate details/trust). That should make the verification process much quicker.

If I cannot break up the document, then speeding up the process is the next best thing.
