SAFE Signing Interface Available for Download on Codeplex

Well, we’ve finally been able to get it posted!  The SAFE Signing Interface for Office 2007 has been posted to Codeplex, with the source code for the interface being posted shortly.

The installation executable, along with installation instructions, is now available at

We are also releasing the source code into open source – available on the same site – and to be available as soon as we can get it uploaded. 

Look for another posting here to that end!

While this is a reference implementation (and thus, unsupported), we are hoping that the broader community will take up the support for this important capability, extending it as the SAFE standard is extended.  If you are interested in participating as a developer on this project, please send me an e-mail at

    Hi Jordon,

    First of all, this code is an excellent starting point to understand digital signatures in Office 2007.

    I successfully setup the plugin, but I am getting this popup:

    Your signature could not be added to the document. If your signature requires a smart card.. " etc.

    I am on win2003 Server. Is that a problem? Will this go away if I am on Vista?
