Digital Identification for Signing Code for Windows Programs
Microsoft Authenticode Code Signing Certificates
Microsoft Authenticode is designed to help give users an assurance as to who actually created the code that they are running, especially for code that is downloaded or run on the internet, and to verify that the code has not been altered or tampered with after being issued. For example, a program that has been digitally signed, maliciously tampered with and then redistributed online will present users with a warning before being run.
Code signing relies on tested and proven technology based upon Public Key Cryptography and digital certificates, and DigiCert's trusted identity assurance validation procedures.
With DigiCert's easy to use tools to get your certificate created and installed, and Microsoft's many easy to use code signing utilities, getting started signing your code couldn't be easier.
