E-Signing validator

​The E-Signing validator can validate SDOs either manually by browsing for files or the customer can call the validator using HTTP POST to force validation of a specific SDO. The E-Signing validator is available at https://www.sign.nets.eu/validator/index.html.

General functionality​

The validator validates SDOs (Signed data object) and it offers this functionality:

  • Statement of the document validity
  • View the document
  • List of the signers
  • Document title
  • Information about the seal of the SDO

When the validator is used manually by browsing for a file, the document must be stored on disk with the file ending .sdo.

Here is an example of the E-Signing validator:

 

The E-Signing validator is currently available in English, Norwegian, Finnish, Swedish and Danish.

 

Using HTTP POST

Using HTTP POST to force validation of a specific SDO is detailed in these to steps:

 

Step 1

Customer sends an http post to the validator. This HTML FORM is an example:

<form method="post" enctype="multipart/form-data" name="sdoupload" action="https://www.sign.nets.eu/validator/parser">
                <input type="file" name="localfile" class="file_input" onchange="this.form.submit()" />
</form>

The E-Signing validator returns a URL to the customer like:
https://www.sign.nets.eu/validator/index.html?act=gsfc&reqid=b572aedd-4e90-44db-ac1a-f0e18e0e390a

Step 2​

The customer directs the end user to the URL returned in step 1.
Note: The URL is only valid for ten minutes.
