What are Code Signing Certificates?
Code Signing Certificates were developed to help establish the source and integrity of code, as well as specify to applications the purposes for which the code was created. Starting with Mac OS 9 (and carried on through Mac OS X) code signing has been integrated with the Apple OS to allow developers to manage these important functions. In order to ensure the secure distribution of code, developers should obtain what is called a code signing certificate to effectively stamp code with a kind of "stamp of authenticity."
The Apple OS will carry out policy checks based on a digital code signature, and in the event that code has been tampered with, or the signature is not trusted or not valid, users will be presented with these warnings before running or installing code.
