In concert with other conservation efforts at Clemson University, University Facilities supports the practice of signing electronic documents (PDF) using digital signatures. Our organization uses self-signed ids containing public-key cryptography as the basis for creating and managing digital signatures using Adobe Reader, available at Adobe's website as a free download.
This tutorial includes specific instructions for Adobe Reader X and Adobe Reader XI. If you are using a previous version, please upgrade to lessen any confusion with the screenshots below. You can use Adobe Acrobat if you prefer, just note that some of the instructions may vary due to dissimilarities between Reader and Acrobat's drop-down menus.
