Asked Questions

What is a DigiCert Code Signing?

DigiCert Code Signing Certificates could help you secure your code and assure its integrity and validity. It offer a secure way of distributing code online by utilizing a private and public key system, providing users with assurances regarding the authenticity of your program. Although the certificate permits code signing, any abuse carries legal consequences, guaranteeing secure and ethical software distribution.

What does software/code sign mean?

Code signing enables you to verify that digital binaries haven't been altered by adding a digital certificate to the code. This certificate adds a cryptographically unique user and timestamp so you can determine who signed the code when, and it employs Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) to testify to the integrity of the code or software.

Why is the Hardware Security Module (HSM) required for code signing?

Since Hardware Security Modules (HSMs) store the private keys required to sign software extremely securely, they are essential for code-signing certificates. The private key is a crucial component in the code signing procedure. If it ends up in the wrong hands, it might be used to sign malicious software and cause several problems. HSMs prevent this by storing the private key on a tamper-proof device separate from the signature server. This way, the private key remains secure even if the signature server is hacked.

Which kinds of files are signable?

Digital binaries of all kinds, including firmware, drivers, programs, containers, mobile apps, and even source code artifacts, can be signed.

How should my DigiCert secure signing token be configured?
