Chapter 13. Digital Signatures > Setting up a Signature Profile

Setting up a Signature Profile

The next step in creating a digital signature is setting up a signature profile. The profile you set up will be password-protected; it is your own private key. When you save the profile, the key will be embedded in the documents you sign. If you sign documents in two roles—those of president and treasurer, for example—you'll need to set up two separate profiles. Because the information contained in your profiles is so crucial, it's a good idea to make backup copies of the profiles as soon as you create them.

To create a profile:

1.
Choose Tools > Self-Sign Security > Log In (Figure 13.3).

This opens the Self-Sign Security Log In dialog box.

2.
Click the New User Profile button (Figure 13.4).

The Create New User dialog box appears.

3.
Enter information in the User Attributes and the Profile File sections; then click OK (Figure 13.5).
