Code signing: the security of digital signatures applied to software components
Code Signing Certificates let you add a digital signature to a wide range of executable software components, to guarantee their authorship, integrity and ensure the source code has not been tampered with.
The certification process inextricably links the identity of an IT organization to a key pair: the private key, used by the developer or distributor to sign the code, and the public key, which allows the end user to verify the identity of the signatory (and so the reliability of the software component).
This is an essential security measure for many organizations, who need to protect the software components they develop and distribute from the risk of malware.
