    3. In the Platform section, in the drop-down list, select which platform you will be using your code-signing certificate with (e.g., Microsoft Office VBA).

      Note: If you select Sun Java as your platform type, you must submit a CSR for your order. You can do provide it now while ordering your certificate or later from your new DigiCert CertCentral account.

Validation Process

When you complete the order, it will be sent to our validation department for verification. The validation process can be completed in under an hour or two. Although, there can be issues that extend the process beyond what is standard, especially if we have difficulty verifying your identity (Certificate Requester).

After the validation process is completed, DigiCert will send you (Certificate Requester) an email with certificate installation instructions.
