Version 188.8.131.52.alpha0+ (Build ID: 217ba33cb02c86ea25bf62748e1bcbdd1218795)
The title says it all. Steps to reproduce :
1) Create a new Writer document. Type some text. Save the file.
2) File > Digital Signatures brings up the Digital Signature management dialog.
3) If no signatures are already present/listed, there is no way to add new digital certificates/signatures, or even to manage the existing ones.
So, how is this done ?
The only possibility I have found is via Tools > Options > Security
and then it only looks for NSS security certificates, i.e. in Firefox and Thunderbird profiles. Where have the other certificate support protocols gone ? Is there some kind of special build option I need to add in ?
Hello Alex, *,
I can confirm this bug with LO Version 184.108.40.206 (Build ID: 0eaa50a932c8f2199a615e1eb30f7ac74279539) under Debian Testing AMD64 (and it was a problem with 4.0.2 as well ... :( ). I have tried to add my certificates, which I have imported from FF, but to no avail ... :(
I tried to add my already installed certificate, but writer doesn't display it in certificates list.
Bug 82200 added to See Also list. Seems closely related, if not an actual duplicate.

To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.
There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.
If you have time, please do the following:
Test to see if the bug is still present on a currently supported version of LibreOffice (5.0.1 or preferably 220.127.116.11 or later)
If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the version of LibreOffice and your operating system, and any changes you see in the bug behavior
If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a short comment that includes your version of LibreOffice and Operating System
Please DO NOT
Update the version field
Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not appropriate in this case)
If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:
1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3)
2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to "inherited from OOo";
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add "regression" to keyword

It works for writer in 18.104.22.168.
Steps followed (with certutil tool installed, package libnss3-tools in debian stretch):
1. Create a new certificate database using a password file
$ echo 123 > /tmp/user-certs.pass
$ mkdir /tmp/user-certs
$ certutil -N -f /tmp/user-certs.pass -d /tmp/user-certs
2. Create and add a certificate to the database
$ certutil -S -s "CN=My Issuer" -n myissuer -x -t "C,C,C" -f /tmp/user-certs.pass -d /tmp/user-certs
3. Add the database to libreoffice following steps described by Alex:
a. Go to Tools > Options > Security > "Certificate ..." button in "Certificate Path".
b. Add the path /tmp/user-certs
c. Restart writer
4. Sign the file
a. Open the file to sign
b. Go to File > Digital Signatures > "Sign document..." button
c. Use the previous password (123) to open the added certificate database and add the certificate.
@Juan : your description doesn't indicate how this should work on OSX, where I encounter the same problem. The point is, the dialog offers no way to add a certificate. This is, after all, supposed to be the digital signature management dialog (otherwise, why have an entry for it ?).
The dialog under "File->Digital Signatures" is not for adding certificates to the certificate store. It is only for signing a document with existing certificates. The dialog to select the signing certificate comes after you hit "Sign Document".
You select the certificate store to use under "Tools->Options>LibreOffice->Security->Certificate Path" (under Linux this is either from an existing thunderbird/firefox installation or a newly created one).
The type of certificate store available is OS-dependent, so it may differ on Windows and Mac.
There is now a "Start certificate manager" button in this dialog which starts an external certificate manager, if available.
I guess this is fixed then. LO is no certificate manager, it only uses existing certificates.
Used LibreOffice for some time at previous workplace with having Ubuntu OS computer. But those who are currently using this software will sure find this bud solution helpful in their work.
