Sectigo EV Code Signing Certificate Features & Benefits
Boost Microsoft SmartScreen Score
Once the software is signed with the Sectigo EV Code Signing certificate, it'll get immediate recognition from the notorious Microsoft SmartScreen Filter, famous for warning users. It means you can stay assured your software won't go through any warning messages if any user tries downloading or installing from the time you signed your software.
Private Key Is Provided Separately
Unlike a standard code signing certificate, the private key is given separately in an HSM device that works like two-factor authentication. Likewise, it helps prevent unauthorized usage risks while providing total control over who can access your EV Code Signing certificate for signing software and applications.
Shows Company Name & Address
Once your software is signed with an EV Code Signing certificate, users will be able to verify its authenticity with trust indicators like company name and address embedded with the digital signature.
Timestamp to Keep Signature Valid
Sectigo EV Code Signing certificate is issued with a Timestamping feature that lets you timestamp your signature at the time of code signing your software. It means your timestamped signature will be considered valid even after your EV Code Signing certificate expires. Likewise, users won't face any warning messages.
Compatibility With Different File Formats
Sectigo EV Code Signing certificate allows you to sign software and applications developed using 32-bit and 64-bit file formats with ease.
Once your Sectigo EV Code Signing certificate gets issued, you have the timeframe of 30-days in which you can cancel your issued certificate if you want, and you'll get a 100% refund. However, you can cancel your EV Code Signing certificate even after thirty days, but you won't get any refund.
How Does Sectigo EV Code Signing Certificate Work?
Go through the below image that shows how your issued Sectigo EV Code Signing certificate works:
Once your software is developed and ready, you should go ahead and hash it using a hashing function, and an EV Code Signing certificate does the same. It uses its mathematical hash function to hash the software, making it tamper-proof. Likewise, if the correct hash value isn't generated at the time of downloading software, the browser will get to know about it and get the message that the software isn't safe and compromised.
Further, with an EV Code Signing certificate, you'll require inserting an external HSM token that includes a private key. And you can additionally use that private key for code signing and timestamping your software or an application. Similarly, a digital signature that's embedded with the software gives the message of software authenticity to the browser and users.
Once your software is hashed, signed & timestamped, you can go ahead and distribute it for downloading on third-party software publishing portals. Similarly, whenever someone downloads your software, their browser will be acknowledged about the software publisher and will be able to decide whether the software is trustworthy or not.
