Note: Beginning May 2023, the CA/B Forum requires that all code signing certificates be stored on compliant Physical USB Hardware or a Hardware Security Module (HSM). Certificates cannot be exported from any existing or new USB Hardware. Learn more about certificate delivery options.
To maximize the number of users who download and install your software, start the installation process with a message the builds trust, not a warning.

“Do you want the following program from an unknown publisher to make changes to this computer?” is not the friendliest message to receive when you’re considering downloading software or an app. If you want to avoid having that message attached to your software/app and would rather evoke trust, tamper-proof your code and improve download rates – then you came to the right place.

The DigiCert Code Signing Certificate enables developers to digitally sign their software and apps, so that users will know who the software/app is coming from and that the code has not been tampered with. With the use of an encrypted digital signature and a thorough authentication process, the DigiCert Code Signing Certificate will ensure that you’re offering a secured product and end-users are receiving a secure download.

Platforms Supported

The DigiCert Code Signing Certificate is supported by most major platforms. It enables you to sign any code across multiple platforms. This includes:

  • Microsoft Authenticode
  • Microsoft Authenticode
  • Apple applications
  • Adobe AIR files
  • And more
Features & Benefits

Authenticate your identity so end-users know the software/app they are downloading is from a trusted entity.
Build trust and preserve brand integrity by showing a commitment to safety.
Increase download rates by avoiding warning messages from browsers.
Communicate to users that your software/app was signed with a valid certificate even after the DigiCert Code Signing Certificate expires (by adding our optional timestamp).
Many contractual agreements require a software/app to have a code signing certificate, fulfill contractual needs or stay prepared for future opportunities!

OV vs. EV: Which Do You Need?

With the standard (or OV) DigiCert Code Signing Certificate, you get a proven product that will ensure improved success through improved trust. However, the DigiCert EV Code Signing Certificate offers several unique features that can be critical in certain situations.

The most notable addition is that the EV certificate instantly builds trust with the Microsoft’s SmartScreen® Application Reputation filter. This is critical if your software users are seeing Microsoft SmartScreen filter warning messages when installing.

SmartScreen is active on all modern Windows systems, as well as Internet Explorer and Edge browsers. MicroSoft SmartScreen can be very sensitive, often flagging software packages that are new and haven’t been downloaded many times. This is where an EV code signing certificate can be a huge value—ensuring that your new software releases aren’t blocked when your customers try to install them.
