Thawte® Individual Code Signing
Individual web developers can easily safeguard code & content
Finally, you don't have to be an official company to qualify for a code signing certificate. The world figured out that there are some good developers out there making some pretty awesome code too, why wouldn't we want them protected as well?! So, with a Thawte® Individual Code Signing Certificate, you too can get a digital "shrink-wrap" for your software, because it no longer requires you to be affiliated to an organization anymore.
Thawte® now officially supports individual code signing, so you can now order certificates for your code and content as an individual software developer and distribute it with 100% confidence and securely over the Internet. This will get rid of the "Unknown Publisher" security warning accompanying your badass code for no reason! I mean come on!
Thawte® Code Signing Certificates for Individuals ultimately protect your potential users and your integrity & reputation as the prized coder you are and, of course, your intellectual property by making your applications completely identifiable and harder to falsify or damage. Thawte® Individual Code Signing Certificates support:
- Microsoft Authenticode® (multi-purpose)
- Sun Java®
- Adobe® AIR™
- Microsoft® VBA and Office®
- Apple® Mac®
- Microsoft® Office 2000
- Netscape Object Signing
- Marimba Channel Signing
- Silverlight® 4 applications
As an individual, getting this cert is easy, however, you do need to keep in mind that this is a security product! So, after you complete the purchase, you'll have to go through some light vetting to get your full name and identity on record. You'll simply receive a letter from Thawte® that you'll need to get notarized, show two forms of government IDs or a passport and then just answer a brief phone call at the number you provided during enrollment and then BOOM, your cert is issued!
Also, with your individual code signing cert, you'll get a $50,000 warranty to protect you and your users as well. If you want to enhance your brand and reputation to the max, please consider our powerhouse brand's, Symantec™ Code Signing solution that leverages the Norton™ brand and has a higher warranty amount, otherwise, choosing to go with Thawte® is a safe bet, as it has protected identities and transactions with over a million SSL & code signing certificates issued across 240+ countries.
