Hi,


I am new to this Digital Certificate Topic.I spend a days to search the Digital Certificate in google.But still I didnt get clear picture on that.

From my understaing,
1. I created the .pfx and keystore file using java keytool
2. I installed the .pfx file(my machine) by providing keystore password
3. Now I can able to generate the certificate(.crt and .cer files) and embed the certificate into the word document

4.Now I dont have idea that, once I embed the certificate into the document how can I proceed that?
If I am sending my document(contains Digital certificate) to person B, how the person will validate that this document is comes from me or other people.I got the information that using public Key we can verify/validate the certificate? I need to verify it programmatically (not using key tool commands)

If anyone is having idea, to verify whether the document(contains Digital certificate) is valid or not please share it to me.


Thanks
