Signing pdfs on a server document using a signature from the user

Posted 18 May 2012 - 01:54 AM

here is what i want to do:
1. user creates document (html)
2.edit -> save pdf on server
3.ask if user wants to sign the document
(yes) 4. here is the problem
(no) 4. no problem
5.???? (not important)

so now the problem i face is how to do that (yes) step 4. if the signature is on the server no problem, i have some html->php->pdf classes that can sign with digital signatures but the signature must be on the server as a file, but the question is how can i do it directly on the server. the user chooses yes, the signature is read (from his reader on his computer) and send to the server and signing is done. here i believe i can't do it without smth like java or ... well in my opinion php and javascript sure as hell aren't going to be enough for this action.
Has anyone ever encountered a problem like that?maybe some ready to use library?
P.S not quite sure if the topic is for this sub-forum, but couldn't figure out where to put it, so please dot delete or close it , just move it.

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0
