Code Signing for Mac OS

GlobalSign Code Signing Certificates for Apple Mac OS are used to digitally sign software, applications, plug-ins, and content for Mac OS desktops. Code signing technology was introduced by Apple for Mac OS 9 onwards.
GlobalSign Code Signing Certificates can be used with the following systems: Parental controls (MCX), Keychain Access Controls, Developer Tools Access (DTA), App Sandbox, and Application Firewall.
In order to sign applications to distribute through the app store, or to pass through Mac OS Gatekeeper, you must use an Apple Developer ID Certificate.
- Signature does not expire due to timestamping service, even after the certificate expires
- Certificate stored on USB token protects the private key and reduces the risk it will be stolen and compromised
- Sign an unlimited number of apps
- Protect your brand and reputation
