Adobe AIR Code Signing Certificates

Code Signing for Adobe Air

 - Show that your Apple Mac OS Desktop applications and kernel software are from a trusted developer. Digitally Sign AIR Applications and Software

- Our Code Signing Certificates for Adobe AIR are used to sign .air and .airi files. Adobe requires software vendors and developers to digitally sign all of their AIR applications in order for them to run successfully

- Signing .air applications authenticates your identity as a publisher or developer. Before users download your .air app, they will see that you are a verified source and that the content is safe

- By protecting against tampering and binding your identity to your code, you protect your reputation and intellectual property, as well as increase user trust and download rates.

Why Sign Code?

Add an essential level of trust to the application installation process. The solution is simple – Sign your code!

Unsigned Adobe AIR applications display worrying security alerts to end users, warning them that the publisher of the application is unknown and advising them to only install applications from sources that they trust.

Digitally signed Adobe AIR applications prominently display the name of the publisher on the install screen, alleviating the end user's concern over only downloading from trusted sources.
