The Sun PKCS#11 provider is not supported on the Windows 64-bit platform. As a result, HSM functionality is not supported for LiveCycle ES running on Windows 64 using the Sun JDK.
To provide HSM functionality for LiveCycle ES running on Windows 64, create a Signature SPI component that is able to access an HSM credential. This component creates a LiveCycle ES service that implements the Signatures SPI model. The Signature service delegates the signing to the SPI component which in turn delegates the call to a secure HSM web service.
To enable LiveCycle ES running the Windows 64-bit platform to sign or certify a PDF document using an HSM credential, perform the following steps:
For information about signing a document using a SPI component, see the "Testing the signature handler" section in Programming with LiveCycle ES.
