Code signing FAQ

CODE SIGNING CERTIFICATE Q&A

QWhat is a code signing?
A

Code signing certificate is a special SSL certificate encryption tool that can be used to protect your code and files during online transmission. It is not difficult to understand that people are reluctant to download any untrusted applications to their computers and install them, which is why code signing certificates are so valuable. By using this encryption technology to sign a document, a third-party certification authority (CA) will confirm that you are the producer of the document. If any third party makes any changes to the code, the certificate will automatically remind the user. This way, you don't have to worry about someone changing your package without your knowledge.

QWhen is the code signing certificate used?
A

Code signing certificates are widely used throughout the industry. Microsoft, JavaSoft, Adobe and Apple all use this encryption and signing tool when releasing software. In addition, code signing certificates can be used to sign almost all file formats you can think of, including .exe, .ocx, .xpi, .msi, .dll, and .cab. If you need to transfer the code online and you want to make sure that no one has made any changes or used your source code, a code signing certificate must basically be used. It reassures you that once your software is published online, it will not be maliciously modified by other third parties to reassure consumers. In addition, they do not have to worry about being infected by malware and viruses when downloading and installing your software.

QHow to choose a code signing certificate?
A

At present, there are not many Code Sign digital certificate manufacturers, namely Digicert (including the original Symantec), Comodo, Entrust, etc. In terms of selection, general manufacturers will be happy to choose Digicert (formerly Symantec brand), after all, the certificate is highly recognized. But in terms of cost performance, Comodo is also quite good. In fact, from the perspective of product safety, there is no difference between the two, more is the level of brand recognition. So for startups or companies that are not very large, consider Comodo.

In addition, when purchasing code signing, if your software is a driver or the like, you need to purchase a code signing EV certificate.
