Secure Software Manager Hero
DigiCert® Software Trust Manager

Software Supply
Chain Security

Protect your entire software supply chain with automated
policies and tools for scanning code, signing code and
generating Software Bills of Materials (SBOM).
That’s digital trust for the real world.

Secure against software supply chain attacks

Software supply chain attacks (SSC) are on the rise. If your customers depend on the integrity of your software, then you can depend on DigiCert to secure your software supply chain. We provide secure software management for storage of your code signing keys with role-based access that minimizes the chance of an attacker accessing private keys. Leverage a policy-driven approach to releasing software: run a deep analysis of your software binaries looking for malware and vulnerabilities, and then securely code sign the application only if your policies have been met. We deliver:

  • Enterprise-hardened secure code signing
  • Threat detection scanning on software binaries
  • Software Bill of Materials (SBOM)
  • Automation for CI/CD pipelines
Secure against software supply chain attacks - DigiCert® Software Trust Manager

Automate software security management

DigiCert® Software Trust Manager improves software security with code-signing and threat detection workflow automation. Our software management tools identify and reduce points of vulnerability with end-to-end company-wide security and control in the release process—all without slowing down your DevOps pipelines.

Key capabilities include:

Secure Signing Keys - DigiCert® Software Trust Manager

Secure Keys

Signing keys are safely secured in on-premises or cloud HSMs, protected from theft or insecure key practices, with fine-grained access and usage control options.

Policy Enforcement with automation - DigiCert® Software Trust Manager

Policy Enforcement

Granular roles and permissions with automated workflows ensure compliance with security policy. 

Centralized certificate lifecycle management - DigiCert® Software Trust Manager

Centralized Management 

Audit trail of who signed what, when, with full certificate lifecycle handling, facilitates management and remediation.

Integration with CI/CD pipelines - DigiCert® Software Trust Manager

Integration with CI/CD

Integration with CI/CD pipelines ensures efficient and consistent signing without slowing down development.  

Threat Detection with ReversingLabs - DigiCert® Software Trust Manager

Threat Detection

Powered by ReversingLabs, advanced detection of threats such as malware, software tampering, and inclusion of secrets in open-source software, proprietary software, containers, and release packages.

Software Bill of Materials (SBOM) - DigiCert Software Trust Manager

Software Bill of Materials

Comprehensive Software Bill of Materials generated from the final software binary for all components within the binary.

Why do you need a Software Bill of Materials (SBOM)?

Today’s software is a compilation of code and packages from multiple sources, many of which are not built in-house. These include open source, third party, and various libraries, along with multiple components from internal and external CI/CD teams. A Software Bill of Materials is a list of components attached to the software as a nested inventory. It lists every piece of code that makes up the full software package, so you can know what to trust and more easily trace and eliminate vulnerabilities or malware.

Detect and mitigate threats

Software scanning and Software Bills of Materials allow you to track components and detect threats, so mitigation and remediation are much easier.

DigiCert Software Trust Manager delivers the flexibility and control that enterprises require.

Granular account management and user access controls

Configure workflows that give you centralized control over your security policies:

  • Configure and standardize workflow features, user structures, roles and permissions
  • Easy-to-generate dedicated private CA for facilities with site-specific requirements
  • Enterprise-wide certificate landscape with import and export of self-signed, private and public end-entity certificates from any CA
  • Easy-to-audit tracking of signing activity with timestamping for rapid remediation


Key and certificate security controls

Prevent unauthorized access and use of signing keys with secure key storage, access, and handling:

  • Integration with on-premises or cloud-delivered HSMs
  • Key access profiles that map to key handling needs: production, test, on-demand, offline, open, restricted
  • Static, dynamic, and roaming usage models
  • Dual-user confirmation options
  • Certificate profile templates and workflows
  • Fine-grained granular key access authorization with multi-factor authentication  

Release process controls

Prevent malware from being injected to build servers, with verification that code being signed during the release process matches a baseline build.

STM Icon Threat

Threat Detection

What is software and code signing?

Code signing is a method to confirm that code or other digital binaries have not been altered. This method leverages the Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) framework to attest to the integrity of the code or binaries. Code signing acts like a digital shrink wrap.

The process:

  • Signing creates a “package” with the signed code or file.
  • The signed code is sent.
  • If the “packaging” was not damaged in transit, the recipient knows the file has not been tampered with. It can be trusted.
  • If the “packaging” was damaged then the file has been tampered with and cannot be trusted.

Why is code signing important?

Code signing minimizes the risks of code tampering. With signed code, the recipient gets a security warning when the integrity check fails during download. This helps recipients to avoid downloading tampered code which may contain malware. Code signing is an important part of software trust management.
