Symantec™ Code Signing Certificates provide a very high level of protection and verification for downloadable code and applications. With Symantec Code Signing Certificates, you can digitally “shrink wrap” your software to assure your customers that the software is from a verified publisher and the code integrity has not been compromised. Code signatures facilitate technical compliance with platform vendors and application storefronts, making code signing certificates an increasingly critical element of the software development process.
Symantec Code Signing Certificates support every major platform including 64-bit kernel mode signing. Whether you want to secure cloud-based software or the latest mobile phone application, Symantec Code Signing Certificates give you the most recognition and flexibility to meet your business needs.
Symantec Code Signing Certificates verify both the integrity of software and the identity of the publisher. Using public key infrastructure (PKI) and digital signature technology, Symantec Code Signing verifies the identity of the publisher and confirms that your code has not been tampered with or corrupted.
Symantec Code Signing Certificates also support time stamping, which allows users to verify that the certificate was valid at the time of signature. Time stamping provides time relevance and ensures the signature does not expire.
EV Code Signing offers a more secure process of signing code, allows for greater confidence in the integrity of your application and provides a more frictionless experience for users downloading your application. EV Code Signing is more secure because of its particularly stringent authentication process. It also requires a hardware token and secure PIN for the signing process, which can only be used by the designated developer.
