Code Signing Certificates

Code Signing Certificates

Allow users to digitally sign their code, protecting the integrity and preventing against tampering. Code Signing is the virtual shrink wrapping for software distributed over the Internet.

Signing Code

GlobalSign’s Code Signing Certificates provide developers associated with organizations, with the ability to digitally sign software on all platforms to confirm authentication, security and integrity of their code.

Supported Platforms:

End users are increasingly encouraged not to run unsigned code. Downloading and running unsigned applications will generate worrying “Unknown Publisher” security warnings, driving people to quit the installation process before it has even begun. There is also the risk to the vendor’s reputation as unsigned software can be tampered with, such as the insertion of spyware, malware or harmful code and then redistributed.

Once digitally signed the security warnings change from being worrying, to alerting the user that the publisher of the digitally signed software is known – adding an essential level of trust to the application installation process.
