Websocket Interface

The PadConnector assumes that requests over the web socket are JSON objects.
The requests contain a "messageId" field.
The requests contain a "type" field.
The requests may contain a "data" field whose structure varies for different message types.

Replies are JSON objects.
Replies may contain a "messageId" field.
Replies may contain a "data" field.
The messageId may be a field of the "data" field.

Lazy replies are replies that may be sent in the future.
Lazy replies contain a "type" field.
Lazy replies contain a "data" field that has a "messageId" field and a sequence of fields with keys "value[0-9]+".

Types

Requests, replies, lazy replies.

executeDeviceSearch

searches devices and selects one of them.

The reply contains "data" with "ret" with a one(1) in case of success.

finishSigning

ends a running signature capture in a similar way as the OK click on the device.
This should lead to a lazy "onStaticAppletSignatureFinished" reply.

getBioData

gets biodata.

The reply contains "data" that contains a "ret" field with the biodata as a base64-encoded sequence of naturaSignV2 records.

getButtonConfigs

gets the current button configuration of the signature pad. Since v2.2.0

The reply contais "data" with "ret" with an array of button configs.
An element of that array, a single button config, has the fields

  • mode being one of Signature or DocView or DocSign

  • kind being one of Ok, Repeat, Cancel, Rotate, Rotate90, Prev, Next, ZoomIn, ZoomOut, StartSignature

  • visible, boolean

  • enabled, boolean

  • color which is a 32bit ARGB value.

onStaticAppletGetImage

is a lazy reply of

It either is a signal (1) or a request for an image (2).
How to react to the signal depends on the application.

"data" contains

  • value0, the one-based page number

  • value1, is either one (1) or two (2)

In case of an image request as a consequence of a startSigning request,
render the page with the resolution used in that request
and send it as part of the reply to the PadConnector.
Note that zero-based page numbers are used in the startSigning request.

Example

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 { "data":{ "value0":1, "value1":2, "messageId":"6d1a23df-5919-4d75-9446-4a6d95f4ed7a" }, "type":"onStaticAppletGetImage" }

setButtonConfigs

sets the button configuation. Since v2.2.0.

The request contains "data" that contains "buttonConfigs" which is an array of button configs, to change the buttons.

Replies "ok".

1 2 3 4 5 {"data":{ "buttonConfigs":[{"mode":"DocView","visible":true,"color":-16711936,"kind":"StartSignature","enabled":true}], "messageId":"3af72aa7-7d90-4f52-a159-edf4cafbb599"}, "type":"setButtonConfigs"}} {"data":{"ret":"ok"},"messageId":"3af72aa7-7d90-4f52-a159-edf4cafbb599","type":"response"}

reply

"data" contains a "ret" with the text "ok".

lazy reply

"type" is "onStaticAppletSignedFinalDocHash" contains "data" with "value0" field
that is a JSON array of numbers each being an octet of an RSA signature.

start

resets state and replies ok.

The lazy reply "onStaticAppletLoaded" is sent when the operation completed.

startSigning

starts a signing process.

request

"data" should contain

  • "page", the page of the signature field,

  • "x", "y", "width", "height", the position of the signature field in inch/72
    where

    • "y" is the upper border from top

    • "x" is the left border from left

  • "resolution" tells with how many dots per inch the page will be rendered
    and sent as a reply to "onStaticAppletGetImage".

"data" may contain

  • "withHashDialog" to change whether to sign the final doc hash with the hash dialog on the pad,

  • "signatureTimeout" to change the signature timeout in ms, the special value zero(0) means infinite.

"data" may contain "config" that may contain

  • the "cryptoId" to use with the selected pad

  • "signatureImageIntervalMillis" to change the interval of the image stream,

  • "signMode" which can be

    • "inDoc"

    • "standard",

  • "afterSignMode" which can be

    • "noModeChange",

    • "documentViewing",

    • "customerLogo"

  • "textLines" that contains a sequence of key value pairs,
    the keys being [0-9]+, the values being lines of text to be displayed on the pad;

  • "buttonConfigs", since v2.2.0, an array of button configs, to change the buttons.

reply

"data" contains a "ret" with the text "ok".

Lazy replies

"onStaticAppletCaptureStarted", is sent when the signer starts to sign.

"onStaticAppletGetImage" is sent when the PadConnector requires an image.

"onStaticAppletSignatureRepeat" is sent when the signature shall be repeated.

"onStaticAppletSignatureFinished" when the signature is finished either by

  • a "finishSigning" message by the client, or

  • an "OK" click on the signature pad, or

  • a timeout after the signer has stopped drawing.

"onStaticAppletSignatureCancel" is sent when the signature has been canceled by a click on the Cancel button on the pad.

"onStaticAppletError" is sent in case of error. If the pad has been disconnected, it contains "data" with "value0" "DISCONNECT".

Remarks

With color pads, this uses the sign-in-document mode, if

  • the "config" field is not used and "startViewing" has been called before or

  • the "config" field is used with "signMode" being "inDoc".

The standard sign mode will be used, if "start" or "stopSigning" have been called before.

Before answering the "setFinalDocHash" request with the lazy "onStaticAppletSignedFinalDocHash" reply,
the PC may switch the pad to another mode an "afteSignMode" was given.

If "config" was absent, the PC switches the pad to the customerLogo mode.

startViewing

starts a document viewing process. Supported devices can display document pages.

request

"data" may contain

  • "pages" with a number being the number of pages.

  • "buttonConfigs", since v2.2.0, an array of button configs, to change the buttons.

reply

"Ok".

lazy reply

"onStaticAppletGetImage" is sent when the PadConnector requires an image.

stopSigning

stops a signing process.

"data" may contain "showManufacturerLogo", a boolean that tells whether the pad should switch to manufacturer logo mode, also known as customer logo mode, also known as standby mode.
