How to verify signed PAD files using the PAD Verification Tool

In order to validate a pad file you need access to the list of Certificate Authorities that are authorized to issue signing certificates, and the list of revoked certificates. The PAD Signing Tools contain these lists and can now be used to verify a signed PAD file. Use the following command to try it out.

verifypad signed.superwidget.xml CAcerts.pem

Now try altering any part of your signed PAD file using a text editor. See if it will verify correctly. It shouldn't.
