Code Signing for Java
Digitally Sign .jar Files and Java Apps
GlobalSign Code Signing Certificates for Java are used to sign .jar files and Java applications for desktop and mobile devices and are recognized by Java Runtime Environment (JRE).
Digitally signing your .jar files and Java applications protects your code against tampering and binds your identity to the code, assuring end users that the code originated with you and can be trusted.
Security warnings that typically appear when downloading unsigned code are removed
Why Sign Code?
Unsigned Java applications display warnings to the end user that the digital signature cannot be verified by a trusted source and advises they only continue with the install if they trust the origin of the application.
Scary security alerts are removed when the Java application is signed. End users can clearly see the publisher of the file and are informed that the digital signature has been verified by a trusted source.
