How to insert a signature field that requires a certificate to sign

Hello! I am creating a PDF and want to be able to insert a signature field that you must use a certificate to sign. The "digital signature field" allows candidates to draw a signature in, which we can't allow. I've seen a ton of government forms that do this (attached an example of a publically available government form that does this), but I haven't been able to recreate it myself.

 

I also know that under the Certificates tool you can insert a certificate signature somewhere on the PDF, but I would like it to be mandated as well as the default setting when someone clicks on the signature box.

Quick note, in order for the example I uploaded to reflect the intended behavior, you have to view it in Adobe, not a browser!

What app does you use? Acrobat Reader can't insert fields.
