Authenticode also verifies that the software has not been tampered with since it was signed and published. Is anyone aware of a possible reason and fix for this? Thanks, GSerg that looks promising. You may also leave feedback directly on GitHub. When viewing the properties of the just downloaded setup executable, it shows the signature, and tells me that the signature is valid. This section demonstrates how to sign code by creating digital signatures and associating them with files using Authenticode technology.

Creating a fully verifiable certificate might assume the existence of a complex hierarchy of certification authorities. In the meantime I’ve also received my Authenticode certificate from DigiCert.
It combines digital signatures with an infrastructure of trusted entities, including certificate authorities CAsto assure users that a driver originates from the stated publisher. This section demonstrates how to sign code by creating digital signatures and associating them with files using Authenticode technology.

I do hope it is an improvement compared to the Thawte certificate I’m currently using. Sign up using Email and Password.
Is this page helpful? The authentixode of test categories can be found at Certification Test Reference. Running the downloaded setup executable within Windows 10 Fast Ring winows buggy. I’m using it in some setups already. If a test category for the device type is included in this list, the software publisher should obtain a WHQL release signature for the driver package However, if the HCK does not have a test program for the device type, the software publisher can sign the driver package by using the Microsoft Authenticode technology.
If this DigiCert certificate plus waiting to get enough reputation still does not help, I’ll probably have to swallow the bitter pill and buy an extended validation EV code signing certificate which requires a hardware token and is more expensive.
However, the person or organization that signed the software had to prove who they were to the authority that issued the certificate. You can also tell whether software on your authentlcode drive has been digitally signed or not by right-clicking the file in Windows Explorer and clicking Properties.
Choose the type you’d like to provide: Recently Windows 10 does not recognize my valid signatures. Email Required, but never shown. I would have expected that this still causes SmartScreen worries, but authentlcode seems it doesn’t.
With digitally-signed catalog files. Thanks, GSerg that looks promising. It isn’t mandatory to sign code before it will run under Windows, so many software developers don’t bother. The catalog file is then signed with an embedded signature.

A certificate is a set of data that identifies the software publisher. Older downloads from our website, signed with the same Authenticode certificate do not trigger the warning. Signing with Windows 10 Fast Ring is buggy. Introduction to Code Signing.
