Code Signing Certificate from DigiCert

Code signing certificates from DigiCert allow our customers to digitally sign software or applications, especially those that might be downloaded or run online, to verify that the code being run has not been altered or corrupted. Digitally signing code with a digital signature from a trusted certificate authority, such as DigiCert, prevents unnecessary warning dialogues when end users attempt to run the signed code.

In general, a code signing certificate helps guarantee to users that they are, in fact, running the code they believe they are running, and that the code was written by the individual or organization that the certificate was issued to.

As with other digital certificates, code signatures are not platform specific, but they are used differently on the different platforms
