PDF-Over

posted in #Software, Tools on the 4.09.2020

PDF-Over is a graphical program for the creation of signed PDF documents by means of a Citizen Card. It was developed in Java and is based on the PDF-AS program library. The objective of PDF-Over is to provide the easiest possible program for using a Citizen Card to sign PDF documents.

PDF-Over makes it possible to freely select the position of the visible signature visualization in the PDF document. To do this, the PDF document is shown page-by-page, and a placeholder for the signature visualization is placed on the current page by means of the mouse.

If the position has been selected, the signature process is started based on PDF-AS. PDF-Over supports the mobile phone signature as well as chip card based Citizen Cards. For this, however, a local Citizen Card Environment is required, such as MOCCA for example.
