PLEASE NOTE: iText 5 is EOL, and has been replaced by iText 7. Only security fixes will be added

Known Security Issues

org.apache.santuario:xmlsec vulnerabilities

The iText 5 targets Java 5 which means that we can not update org.apache.santuario:xmlsec version to 2.x.x or newer as it requires Java 8. If you are not using the com.itextpdf.text.pdf.security.MakeXmlSignature class then you can avoid adding org.apache.santuario:xmlsec dependency into your project. Which means that you would not be affected by the related vulnerabilities, for example https://snyk.io/vuln/SNYK-JAVA-ORGAPACHESANTUARIO-1655558. If you are using com.itextpdf.text.pdf.security.MakeXmlSignature class, for example for XFA signatures, then you can:

  • either use org.apache.santuario:xmlsec 1.5.8 as a dependency which is affected by the vulnerability specified above, but works on Java 5+;
  • or use org.apache.santuario:xmlsec 2.1.7 or newer. But this would require java 8+ and affects on the output format (see https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/SANTUARIO-494).

We HIGHLY recommend customers use iText 7 for new projects, and to consider moving existing projects from iText 5 to iText 7 to benefit from the many improvements such as:

  • HTML to PDF (PDF/UA) conversion
  • PDF Redaction
  • SVG support
  • Better language support: Indic, Thai, Khmer, Arabic, Hebrew. (Close-source addon)
  • PDF Debugging for your IDE
  • Data Extraction
  • Better continued support and bugfixes
  • More modular, extensible handling of your document workflow
  • Extra practical add-ons
  • Encryption, hashing & digital signatures

iText 5 consists of several jars.

The main release contains:

  • itextpdf-x.y.z.jar: the core library
  • itext-xtra-x.y.z.jar: extra functionality (PDF 2!)
  • itext-pdfa-x.y.z.jar: PDF/A-related functionality
  • xmlworker-x.y.z.jar: XML (and HTML) functionality

iText 5 is hosted on https://github.com/itext/itextpdf

You can also build iText 5 from source.

We also have RUPS — a tool that can help you debug PDFs. It's hosted on http://github.com/itext/rups
