What is the reason I require the Code Signing Certificate?
If customers purchase software from an online store, the origin of the software is evident. When it is downloaded on the Internet that software isn’t so simple to believe. Anyone who plans to distribute information or code over the Internet could be at risk of having their software altered, impersonated, and re-hosted by malicious third-party users. Certificates that sign code immediately notify customers that they are able to be confident about the download of software by verifying the integrity of the code and the legitimacy of the company.
Code Signing Certificates that are signed by electronic signatures allow you to add details about yourself and your code, so that users downloading Code Signed Active X controls and dynamic link libraries .cab files, or HTML contents from your website can be sure that the it is truly yours as the programmers and hasn’t changed or altered when it was first created and signed.
Guarded against Tampering
The digital signature is sufficient details to verify the signer and to verify that the software has not been altered in the future. Signing Certificates with Code Signing Certificates permit content creators as well as programmers to verify their own content that contains macros, software objects device drivers firmware images and virus updates and configuration files, as well as other kinds of content to ensure safe transmission over the Internet.
