Instantiate PdfSignature or PdfCertificate from System.Security.Cryptography.X509Certificates.X509Certificate2?

It doesn't look like it is possible to instantiate a PdfSignature or PdfCertificate from an X509Certificate2, so is there a way to sign a pdf given an X509Certificate2?

Thank you for using syncfusion product,

currently we do support to provide certificate as .pfx file, Internally we are using X509Certificate2 to create PdfCertificate form .pfx file.
PdfCertificate pdfCert = new PdfCertificate("Pdf.pfx", "123");

We have added the feature request "Need to add the support to instantiate a Pdfcertificate from X509Certificate2" in to our database, we will implement this any of our upcoming releases.

Please let us know if you need further assistance.

With Regards,

Hi Jorge, 

Thank you for contacting Syncfusion support. 

Currently we do not have support for signing PDF documents by using X509Certificate2 certificate. We have already logged the feature request regarding this in our database. We will implement this in any of our upcoming release and will let you know once the features have been implemented.
