If you want to validate a StepOver signature in Adobe Reader/Acrobat you would normally see that the identity of the signer is unknown. This is because a "self-signed" certificate is used for the signature, which is not trusted by Adobe Reader/ Acrobat by default. To change that, you have to install the appropriate Root-Certificate.
Therer are 2 certificates:
- The StepOver GmbH Root CA (SORootCAProductive.cer) is necessary for all signature where the Hash-Dialog is enabled.
- The StepOver GmbH Software Root (SOSoftwareRoot.cer) is for necessary when the Hash-Dialog is disabled.
