Adobe sign is a service that allows users to integrate a digital signature to the PDF files. I would like to have something similar for *TeX in order to have a proofed signature for my job application.

Is there a tool, library or code snippet for that?

To avoid misconceptions: I am not looking for a password protection, PKI signature or a way to sign the document as a file.

  • Isn't what you want is to attach a drawing?

    It may look like a drawing, but is instead a linked to a publik key infrastructure that maintains and checks the identity of the person who has signed the document. If you open such an pdf in Acrobat Reader / Profession you will be able to verify the signature. Commented Mar 7, 2017 at 23:14

You can use the digsig package or the eforms package.


        \digsigfield{10cm}{5cm}{Your signature}

    Doesn't this require a copy of Acrobat? That may be fine for the OP. But, if it does, it would be good to make the dependency clear.
