Subject Re: [bulk] Re: PDF Signatures: ByteRange verification
Date Mon, 12 Dec 2011 15:17:55 GMT
Hi Thomas,

Finally managed to verify the ByteRange. I should read the specs first. 
:) Contents is a hexadecimal string, enclosed with angle brackets. So 
for ByteRange verification formula I have:
offset1 == 0
offset2 == offset1 + length1 + signatureValue.length * 2 + 2

* 2 because of hexadecimal encoding
+ 2 because of the angle brackets.

Kind Regards,
