Digital Shrink Wrap
Digitally sign software objects, macros, device drivers, firmware images, virus updates, configuration files. A digital signature ensures secure delivery over the internet.
Code Signing Certificates create a digital "shrink-wrap" that shows customers the identity of the company responsible for the code and confirms that it has not been modified since the signature was applied. In traditional software sales, a buyer can confirm the source of the application and its integrity by examining the packaging. Increasingly, customers download applications online, install plug-ins and add-ins, and interact with sophisticated web based applications. They risk compromising their security and the functionality of existing systems if they download malicious or faulty code.
Protect Your Intellectual Property
Code Signing Certificates protects your brand and your intellectual property by making your applications identifiable and harder to falsify or damage with a digital signature.
Code Signing is based on public key cryptography. A developer or software publisher uses a private key to add a digital signature to code or content. Software platforms and applications use a public key to decrypt the signature during download and compares the hash used to sign the application against the hash of the downloaded application.
Signed code from a trusted source may be automatically accepted or a security warning may require the end user to view the signature information and decide whether or not to trust the code.
