Asked Questions

What is Azure Code Signing?

The practice of digitally certifying software in the cloud to validate its authenticity and reliability and reassure users that it originated from a reliable source is known as Azure Code Signing.

What Is an Azure Key Vault Code Signing Certificate?

The Azure Key Vault code signing certificate is an X.509 digital file with verified details about your and your company's digital identities. In Azure Key Vault, the private key for this certificate is protected from hacking attempts.

What is Azure code signing 21H2?

A Microsoft service called Azure Code Signing 21H2 adds digital signatures to Portable Executables (PE) files running Windows 11, version 21H2. It validates that the PE is authentic and wasn't altered after signing it. This service is an essential security protocol for user mode programs—like anti-malware and anti-cheat programs—that call for Windows Security Centre registration.

In simple terms, Microsoft enforced the Azure Code Signing requirement for all antivirus and anti-malware protection suppliers, starting with Windows 11, version 21H2. Azure Code Signing establishes the identity of the application publisher, ensuring that your Windows workload is reliable and secure.

What is Azure Code Signing ACS?

Microsoft's Azure Code Signing (ACS) framework validates software code for authenticity and ensures unauthorized parties haven't modified it. ACS shields end users from malware, hacking, and other security hazards. It also defines the application publisher's identification and aids developers in creating and distributing apps securely.

What distinguishes Azure Key Vault EV Code Signing Certificate from Azure Key Vault Code Signing Certificate?

Although Azure Key Vault EV Code Signing Certificate and Azure Key Vault Code Signing Certificate are similar, they differ in a few ways.

  • Only the EV code signing certificate can be used to sign Windows 10 drivers.
  • The EV code signing certificate immediately enhances SmartScreen's reputation, but it must develop naturally with the Azure Key Vault code signing certificate.
  • Those without a registered organization cannot use EV code signing certificates; however, Azure Key Vault signing certificates are unconstrained.

How many types of Azure Vault Code Signing Certificates?

There are two kinds of code-signing certificates:

Standard Code Signing Certificate. Issued automatically upon the CA verifies your legitimacy as a developer or organization. It substitutes your validated organization data for the Unknown Publisher alert, lowering security alert frequency—no more anonymous, untrustworthy software.

Extended Validation (EV) Code Signing Certificate. Windows kernel-mode drivers still need to sign even if the certificate was issued under a more comprehensive digital identity verification process.

Do Azure Key Vault Code Signing Certificates have an expiration date?

Yes, Azure Key Vault Code Signing Certificates expire like many other types of certificates. Monitoring and renewing certificate expiration dates in advance is essential to prevent disruptions in code signing procedures.

What is Azure Sign Tool?

Azure Sign Tool is a code-signing tool that executes the signing procedure through Azure Key Vault. It's equivalent to the Windows SDK's sign tool, although it has fewer choices for signing and authenticating with Azure Key Vault.
