Code Signing - Installing a Certificate
For most code signing installations (with the notable exception of Java), you will not need to create a CSR or install your certificates, we will do that for you.
To that end, we will send you an email after the certificate has been approved with a message to click a link in order to create the certificate and install it to your browser.
The Certificate Requester will receive an email from DigiCert titled ‘Create Your DigiCert Code Signing Certificate (Order # 00000000).’ Follow the link in that email.
It is recommended that you go through this process using Microsoft Internet Explorer on Windows machines, which will simplify the installation later on.
- Click on or copy and paste the link provided in the email into your browser. You will receive an Authorize Web Access Confirmation Warning. Click Yes to continue.
You will be taken to a DigiCert page for generating the code signing certificate and fields showing your Organization information and the message:
When you click the button below, the code signing certificate will be created in your web browser. Your Code Signing Certificate will be valid for x year(s) from the time it is issued. You have until mm/dd/yyyy to generate your certificate or it will need to be approved again.
To create your certificate, click the "Generate Certificate" button.
When you click Generate Certificate, the following automatically happens: First, your browser creates a private key and CSR. The private key is stored in the backend of your browser and the CSR is sent to DigiCert. Next, DigiCert receives the CSR and sends files back to the browser for installation. Finally, the certificate files are automatically installed to the browsers Personal Certificate store.
- Your certificate is now installed to the Personal Certificate Store of your browser. If you used IE to install your certificate, the certificate is also placed in the Personal Certificate Store of your Computer Account in the MMC.
