hello friend ,

i have written a java code to digital sign and password protect pdf file . i have used keystore.ks and exports.cer
exports.cer is my public key certificate which i have created using command in command prompt

both created in cmd prompt using below commands

when i execute the java program the signed pdf when i open the Signature is valid . But when i send the same signed pdf to my collegue's system and when she opens it the signature is invalid .

Do i need to install anything in my collegues system also . Please could anyone help me out !!!
