Symantec™ Code Signing Certificate
Deliver trusted code & content backed by the Norton® brand
A Symantec™ Code Signing Certificate creates what we call a'digital shrink-wrap' around your code to secure it, protect it from tampering and ensure your reputation & integrity stays intact. This digital signature action is based on the public key infrastructure (PKI) and modern digital signature technology. After you go through the organizational vetting process,customers downloading your software or code, can be 100% percent confident inits authenticity because it was signed and verified by Symantec™, the world's#1 & trusted security company online. It adds a level of trust that only Symantec™ can provide, to your applications to make any malicious third-partyalmost impossible to falsify or damage, thus protecting your brand and your intellectual property which also promotes more downloads or use.
You may or may not know, but unsigned code or application downloads trigger a disruptive security pop-up warning or alert stating it is not trusted stopping users directly in their tracks. To overcome these obvious problems, software publishers must sign their code with a trusted code signing certificate, like a Symantec™ Code Signing Certificate to deactivate those warning. Unlike other code signing solutions out there, Symantec™ root certificates come pre-installed on most of the devices and are already embedded in most of the applications globally.
With Symantec™ code signing certificates, developers select a platform, a validity period and install the certificate on their desktop or on a portable device such as a USB drive. These certificates come with Time-Stamping feature, which records and shows when the code was signed. This feature proves helpful for the users to verify that the code signing certificate was valid at the time of digital signature. Symantec™ Code Signing Certificates support:
