Signing Documents Electronically

I am working on a project that involves the production and transfer of signed documents from within Filemaker Pro (not FM GO).


I need to provide a means for electronically signing the documents prior to submission as a PDF.


I am looking for a way to allow the insertion of a (facsimile or real) signature that is validated by an individual code. The code would NOT appear on the document but the signature would with some sort of wording that indicates the owner was verified and give some sort of validation code that could be traced back to the source if needed.


I know there is an e-sign solution from PCI that involves capturing a biometric signature and this signature can be "dropped" onto the document. However, without generating a new signature each time, there is no way to bind it to the document. Also, I don't know if there is a way to prevent the signature from being used without an appropriate password being provided.


Option 1: Does anyone have or know of a method of e-signing documents generated from FMPRO that can bind a document?


Option 2: Does anyone have or know of a method of using the PCI E-sign solution (or equivalent) but which requires an individual passcode to apply the signature there by validating that the owner did it?


Option 3: Other than capturing a biometric signature each time, any other appropriate method is acceptable - PLEASE propose.


Please feel free to contact me OFF LINE if you prefer.
