pdf-simple-sign is a simple PDF signer intended for documents produced by the Cairo library (≤ 1.17.4 or using PDF 1.4), GNU troff, ImageMagick, or similar.

I dont aim to extend the functionality any further. The project is fairly self-contained and it should be easy to grasp and change to suit to your needs.


Regular releases are sporadic. git master should be stable enough. You can get a package with the latest development version using Arch Linuxs AUR, or as a Nix derivation.


See the man page for information about usage. The rest of this README will concern itself with externalities.



Build dependencies: Meson, Asciidoctor, a C++11 compiler, pkg-config
Runtime dependencies: libcrypto (OpenSSL 1.1 API)

$ git clone
$ cd pdf-simple-sign
$ meson builddir
$ cd builddir
$ ninja

In addition to the C++ version, also included is a native Go port:

$ go get

And a crude external VFS for Midnight Commander, that may be used to extract all streams from a given PDF file:

$ go get
