Using Local signing - API - Transaction (text) signing using NetID Access

Overview

To use the API, two methods must be called. The first API method call is to trigger the signing. This will return a transaction ID value. The second API method call will poll the status of the signing. The API client must poll until a status=COMPLETE or an error is returned.

Prerequisites

- PhenixID Signing Service Transaction Signing API configured

- NetID Access client

- NetID Access certificate enrolled

- If PhenixID Signing Service Transaction Signing API is protected with client certificate authentication: Client certificate (p12)

- If PhenixID Signing Service Transaction Signing API is protected with basic authentication: Username and password

Trigger signing - data to be fetched before api call

To trigger signing, the api client must fetch these values:

- UserID (UserID, matching the Subject-serialnumber of the certificate enrolled)

- Data to be signed that should be displayed to the user

For more information about signatures, formats etc, please view SecMaker NetID Access documentation.
