Adobe® and advanced signatures
Adobe® was the only U.S. vendor that had already recognized eIDAS compliance in its Acrobat and Reader products and validated qualified signatures (QES) after checking the European Trust List (EUTL). While users of eIDAS-qualified signatures therefore did not have to worry about correct signature validation, a certain gap remained for advanced signatures, for example in the huge area of e-billing and e-government.
Ever since, it was possible to verify advanced signatures using the Microsoft trust list, which is integrated in Adobe products. However, this did not always work reliably recently due to individual user constellations and led to the popular PDF software behaving in contradiction to legal compliance and confusing recipients with an alleged invalidity of the signature!
