[REBOL] rebol and electronic-signature ...

From: petr:krenzelok:trz:cz at: 30-Apr-2003 14:32

Hi, simple question - for e-business automation purposes, our law allows to replace paper invoices by electronically delivered once, but such data has to be electronically signed (hopefully not encrypted). So I would like to ask, if Rebol/Command is able to somehow investigate the certificate, check it and to send electronically signed documents. I am not sure I understand the issue correctly, but am I correct that electronic signature is "just" public key file attached to the end of the email? ------51B1DBAF31BBD047B55567250918B934 Content-Type: application/x-pkcs7-signature; name="smime.p7s" Content-Transfer-Encoding: base64 Content-Disposition: attachment; filename="smime.p7s" MIIWIgYJKoZIhvcNAQcCoIIWEzCCFg8CAQExCzAJBgUrDgMCGgUAMAsGCSqGSIb3 DQEHAaCCFAYwggPkMIIDTaADAgECAgphClXfAAAAAAGaMA0GCSqGSIb3DQEBBQUA MHsxITAfBgkqhkiG9w0BCQEWEmFkbWluQGNhY3plY2hpYS5jejELMAkGA1UEBhMC VVMxDTALBgNVBAcTBEJybm8xJTAjBgNVBAoTHENldGlmaWthY25pIGF1dG9yaXRh IEN6ZWNoaWExEzARBgNVBAMTCkNBIEN6ZWNoaWEwHhcNMDMwMjI1MTI0MzM0Wh etc. But Rebol/Command docs state: Certificate handling is not supported. REBOL does check the validity of server certificates internally, but no mechanism exists to access the certificate chain from REBOL scripts, and client certificates cannot be defined. So I am somehow confused about the issue ... Any help appreciated, thanks a lot, -pekr-
