Signature995 uses native PDF encryption, offering a high level of protection for all your Internet communications, including legal documents and financial transactions. Signature995 employs Microsoft digital certificate technologies to create and validate digital signatures. It is both powerful and easy to use. Signature995 supports PDF documents (*.pdf), Microsoft Office documents (*.doc, *.xls, *.ppt) and Zip archives (*.zip) and UltraPdf documents (*.updf).

Unlike other PDF solutions, Signature995 is free to both the sender and the recipient.

It features:

Encryption
Generates a key from your password to encrypt PDF documents (*.pdf), Microsoft Office documents (*.doc, *.xls, *.ppt) and Zip archives (*.zip). The encrypted file is placed in the same folder as the original document. It has the double file extension '.encrypt.995.'

Decryption
Decrypts PDF documents, Microsoft Office documents and Zip Archives encrypted with Signature995 if the correct password is supplied. The unencrypted document is placed in the same folder as the encrypted file. It has the additional file extension 'pdf', 'doc', 'xls', 'ppt' or 'zip.'

Sign
Uses your digital certificate to sign a PDF document, Office Document or Zip Archive. If "SecureSign" is checked, the signed document will also be encrypted. The signed file is placed in the same folder as the original document. It has the double extension 'signed.995' or 'securesigned.995.'

Co-sign

Digital Certificates:

If you receive an unauthenticated digital certificate in a signed document but you trust the sender, you should install it in the Trusted Root Certification Authorities Store by clicking the "Install Certificate..." button when the Certificate is displayed.

Signature995 Requirements:
In order to encrypt and decrypt documents with Signature995 you will need Internet Explorer 6.0 or later. Older systems may alternatively install the Microsoft Internet Explorer High Encryption Pack.
