How does a Code Signing Certificate work?

In today's technology-driven world, software or applications are downloaded and installed by millions of users. In between are hackers who attack and threaten the software. This means sensitive user data can no longer be guaranteed. Even user systems can fall victim to this type of attack. If you are a software developer and hope this never happens to you, you will need an advanced layer of security called a Code Signing Certificate.

The certificate protects against, among other things, fraud, and malicious code, but can also detects files that have been tampered with. Once the certificate is implemented, no warning messages will appear when downloading or installing your app. If a customer has a warning message pop up when downloading an app, they often refrain from installing it and consider the publishers to be unreliable.

The code signing includes the developer's signature, your company’s name and, if desired, a timestamp. Timestamping is a mechanism that shows the user that the code has been signed with a valid certificate. This remains visible after the certificate has expired.

Why do we need a code signing certificate?

Without a certificate there is a risk that malware may spread when an app is downloaded or installed. Particularly in view of the fact that apps often pass through several computer networks and websites before reaching end users. So unsigned applications may include malicious viruses or software.

Since major software vendors such as Microsoft, Linux, and Apple actively warn their users against downloading applications without a Code Signing Certificate or that aren’t from a secure source, you will immediately increase downloads and increase confidence in your apps when implementing a code signing certificate.
