Cheap EV Code Signing Certificate Features and Benefits
Boost Microsoft SmartScreen Score
Once you sign your software or application using the EV Code Signing certificate, you'll instantly get recognition from the Microsoft SmartScreen filter. Likewise, it's guaranteed your software users won't face any warning message and will get a smooth download and installation experience from day one.
Compatible With Both the File Formats
EV Code Signing certificate is compatible with both 32-bit and 64-bit file formats. It means you can code sign your software application made for both formats without any issues.
Private Key Offered Separately
A private key is given separately installed in an HSM device, which works similarly to two-factor authentication. Likewise, it helps to remove the risk of unauthorized usage, so you can have complete control over who can use your EV Code Signing certificate to sign software and applications.
Display Company Name and Address
Your company name, address, and organization type are displayed in detail within the embedded digital signature, which helps to boost user trust and confidence among users to use your software.
Timestamping to Freeze Your Signature
EV Code Signing certificate comes with a free Timestamping feature that allows you to timestamp your digital signature when you sign your software. Likewise, it offers a benefit that timestamped signature on software remains valid even after the code signing certificate expires. Henceforth, users don't face any difficulty.
Once the EV Code Signing certificate is issued, you get the first thirty days time-frame, and in that duration, you can cancel your software signing certificate and ask for a guaranteed refund. However, you can go for this process only if you process for cancellation within the first thirty days from the date of issuance.
EV Code Signing Certificate Delivery Methods
Beginning June 1st, 2023, it is necessary to comply with the new guidelines established by the Certificate Authority/Browser Forum for the issuance of Code Signing Certificates. These guidelines require the use of secure hardware storage devices, such as Hardware Security Modules (HSMs), Hardware storage tokens, or Trusted Platform Modules (TPMs), that meet the highest security standards like FIPS 140 Level 2, Common Criteria EAL 4+, or their equivalents, for generating, storing, and utilizing private keys.
To comply with the updated guidelines set by the Certificate Authority/Browser Forum, it is recommended to utilize USB Token for storing cryptographic keys. You can use our flexible and dependable solutions for secure key storage. These solutions are designed to seamlessly integrate into your existing workflows and offer peace of mind while maintaining efficiency.
Delivery Method 1: Get a USB Token Delivered to Your Door
We provide convenient shipping choices for both local and global locations, ensuring that the USB token reaches your doorstep with ease. Our pricing options are varied, allowing you to select the most suitable one based on your specific needs.
Token + US Delivery: For a cost-effective fee of $80.00, have the USB token securely shipped to any location within the United States.
Token + International Delivery: Developers located outside the United States can take advantage of international delivery for $110.00.
Token + Expedited US Delivery: If you require the USB token urgently within the United States, opt for expedited delivery at $120.00 to receive it promptly. Minimize potential delays and seamlessly integrate the USB token into your workflow.
Delivery Method 2: Utilize Your Own Hardware Security Module
If you already possess a certified Hardware Security Module (HSM) or USB token, leverage its capabilities for secure key storage. Ensure that your device meets the stringent security standards of at least FIPS 140-2 Level 2 or Common Criteria EAL 4+ to ensure optimal protection.
Delivery Method 3: Keep Your Private Key Safe in the Cloud
You can simplify your code signing processes using the cloud-based key storage solution without compromising security. Take advantage of the secure cloud environment equipped with Hardware Security Module (HSM) capabilities and centralize your private key storage, making it easily accessible for your distributed development teams.
How Does EV Code Signing Certificate Work?
For the visual learner, below is the image. Just go through it, and you'll get it. However, if you still have questions about how it works, don't worry, as we're covering the process.
Once the software is developed, your first step is to hash it. Here, the hash is the mathematical function that lets users know that software is tamper-proof. Likewise, if the download fails to generate the correct hash value, the browser will get to know that the software is compromised and isn't safe to download.
Once you insert the provided external hardware token, you'll be able to use the private key for digitally code signing and timestamping your software or an application. Likewise, a digital signature lets the browser and user know who's the publisher of the software or an application and whether it's safe to trust or not.
Once the software gets hashed, signed, and timestamped, it's ready for distribution and download over third-party software publishing websites. Likewise, whenever someone tries downloading the signed software, the browser will get to know about the publisher and decide whether it's trustworthy or not.
