EV Code signing certificates provide complete protection for your applications from tampering, malware and theft and almost reduces the unnecessary warning messages to zero.

  • Rigorous Vetting Process - Compliance with strict validation standards pertinent to EVSSL certificate issuance from the CA/Browser Forum and Microsoft specifications conform the authenticity of the developer/publisher to the end user.
  • Two factor Authentication - Use of private key in the form of physical token and PIN to be entered for signing prevents theft or unintended use of the code signing certificate.

EV code signing certificates builds confidence on your applications by building file reputation with Microsoft's SmartScreen® Application Reputation filter, irrespective of prior reputation of the file or the publisher - meaning unnecessary warning messages are not displayed to the user by the filter.

How does Authenticode work with Comodo Digital IDs?

Microsoft Authenticode relies on industry standard cryptography techniques such as X.509 v3 certificates and PKCS #7 and #10 signature standards. These are proven cryptography protocols, which ensure a robust implementation of code signing technology.

A certificate for Microsoft Authenticode uses a digital signature to assure users of the origin and integrity of software. In a digital signature, the private key generates the signature, and the corresponding public key validates it. To save time, the Authenticode protocols use a cryptographic digest, which is a one-way hash of the document.

For more about the Code Signing process and the HTTPS protocol, refer to the SSL Tutorial from the Comodo Certificate Authority

Good Publicity

Nowadays the publisher also matters when anybody wants to purchase or download any software. Anyway as the certificate also displayed our org's name it gave us good publicity too. Worthy investment for certificate.

No More Displayed Warnings

Attempts to download our app displayed warnings. Our product is genuine and we got scared. We knew no danger in our product, but somehow some code had got patched in. After consulting with experts we got Code signing certificate. Now no warnings, and the product is unbreakable.

Rescued

With so much malware, ransomware running around, users download apps only from reputed publishers. We are a startup and dont have much publicity. This is when Code Signing rescued us. Good benefit.

Proves Authenticity

At last. No more trying to prove authenticity of our product. The Code signing shrinkwraps the code and protects.

This certificate means additional cost. But it is worth every penny as increased sales later proved.
