[Botan-devel] Acrobat digital signatures

I'm trying to create and verify Digital Signatures as done by Acrobat, using
Botan, but I don't know how to do it.
The most common type of digital signature in acrobat is adbe.pkcs7.detached.
This is a DER-encoded PKCS #7 object. I use 1024bit RSA and SHA-1.
How do I create such a PKCS #7 object?
This is a piece of the implementation I started to write for creating the
Botan::PKCS8::load_key( thePrivateKeyInMemeory, thePassphrase );
Botan::PK_signing_key* theSigningKey = dynamic_cast<Botan::PK_signing_key*>(
if ( thePrivateKey )
Botan::Pipe thePipe( new Botan::PK_Signer_Filter( Botan::get_pk_signer(
*theSigningKey, "EMSA1(SHA-1)" ) ) );
theData >> thePipe;
// What next? How do I create a PKCS #7 object and add how do I add the
X.509 certificate to it?
// What about the DER encoding? When and how should that be done?
For verifying the digital signature, how do I get the X509 certificate and
the actual signature back out of the PKCS #7 object?
