Code Signing Certificates

Content publishers use code signing certificates to append digital signatures to their products. A digital signature proves the identity of the creator and validates that content has not been tampered with since it was originally distributed. Code signing digital signatures can be used to sign content including software components, macros, firmware images, virus updates, configuration files or other types of content for secure delivery over the Internet or other mechanisms.
