What are Code Signing Certificates?

Code Signing Certificates are generally used by software engineers or developers to digitally sign applications, drivers, software and other executables. They provide a way for end-users to verify that the code being issued has not been altered or compromised by a third party.

Code Signing Certificates include your signature, your company’s name and, if desired, a timestamp. The benefits of code signing certificates are:

  • Protect your intellectual property
  • Prevent security warning labels on programs
  • Efficient monitoring of code changes
  • Meets contractual obligations
