Inline XBRL is an important open standard for the exchange of (financial) reporting information. With an increasing number of regulators mandating Inline XBRL, being able to proof the integrity is important.
Documents can be signed with X.509 certificates, including GLEIF certificates (tying a signed document to the Legal Entity Identifier of an organization). The specification relies on open standards such as X.509, XML-DSig and XAdES.
OpenSBR also created draft reference implementations for signing and verification of electronic signatures.
A first draft of the approach, specification and manual is available on request.
A desktop tool (Windows application .NET C#) for signing and verification of signed documents is available.
The desktop tool can be downloaded here (version 20200530).
The source code, including a platform-independent library (.NET Core C#), is available on our GitHub iXBRLSignatureTool page.
A command-line tool (dotnet) for signing and verification of signed documents is available. The tool was designed to work on Windows and macOS, and should also work on Linux.
This tool can be downloaded here (version 20200530).
Instructions for installation and operation of the tool: here (version 20200505).
The source code will be published on our GitHub page.
