Firstlogic Solutions® leverages DigiCert® for Digital Authentication Services for Signing Software Code 

    • Using a DigiCert digital certificate confirms the code’s origin and assures users that a malicious third party has not inserted malware.
    • Signing code with a digital signature from a trusted Certificate Authority like DigiCert prevents unnecessary warning messages when running published code.

 

  About Code Signing Certificates

 

    • Code signing certificates are used by software developers to digitally sign a program to prove that it has not been altered or compromised by a third party.
    • While software purchased from a retail store is typically considered to be relatively safe, programs downloaded from the Internet are often treated with suspicion because of the widespread proliferation of viruses and malware.
