F.A.Q.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Code Signing Certificate?
A Code Signing Certificate is a digital certificate that contains information that fully identifies an entity. It is issued by a Certificate Authority such as inCloud Server Hosting. The Digital Certificate binds the identity of an organization to a public key that is mathematically related to a private key pair. The use of private and public key systems is called Public Key Infrastructure (PKI). The developer signs code with its private key and the end user uses the developer’s public key to verify the developer’s identity.

How does code signing work?

Newer operating systems and internet browsers are often set to higher online security levels, which often require signed content.

When a code signed file is downloaded from a website, the certificate is extracted from the file. The browser cross-checks this information with an internal list of certificate authorities, and then verifies the signature in the certificate.

Do I need a Code Signing Certificate?

Online security vigilance is at an all-time high. Most Web users won’t download software unless you can prove it’s legitimate. Code Signing Certificates inspire confidence and give you the proof you need to validate your code.

Software developers can use Code Signing Certificates to provide extra assurance to their customers. This assurance is about who produced the content and that it’s not tampered with.

Signed code also prevents unidentified third parties from altering the code before it’s distributed.

Content publishers can digitally sign software components, macros, firmware images, virus updates, configuration files or other types of content for secure delivery over the Internet or other mechanisms.

Signing Code with a Code Signing Certificate?

The digital certificate is marked for the specific use of digitally signed code. In PKI this is referred to as Key Usage. Below is an example of an inCloud Server Hosting Digital Certificate marked for Code Signing.

When a digital signature is applied, a timestamp is also recorded. This time‐stamping feature acts to ensure the signed code remains valid even after the digital certificate expires. Unless you’re adding additional code or making changes to the code, a new signature does not need to be applied. (even if the digital certificate used to initially sign the code expires).

What do I need to do after purchasing a Code Signing Certificate?

After you purchase a Code Signing Certificate, you need to provide a certificate signing request (CSR) from the computer that is signing the code. Depending on the use of the certificate, you can create the CSR automatically, or you can use a tool like OpenSSL to generate the CSR.

After you submit your request, we verify the company information you supplied. The Registration Authority (RA) might contact you to provide additional information.

Once the Code Signing Certificate is issued, we’ll send you an email with a link to download and install the certificate file.

You can even time-stamp your signature block using Authenticode to show the validity of your certificate at the time the code was signed.

You can check the status of the validation process through your account.

What are Driver Signing certificates

Driver Signing certificates (also know as kernel-mode Code Signing certificates) are identical to Code Signing certificates. They are specifically designed to secure code from Windows® hardware drivers and operating systems. A Driver Signing Certificate is required to sign all drivers on any Windows Vista® operating system or later.
