A Step-by-Step Guide to Getting a Code Signing Certificate

Code Signing Certificates are the security shield for software, applications, and exe files when they are digitally signed by the users, which aims to secure the code and verify the developer's identity as a valid publisher. This removes "Unknown Publisher Warning" alerts on the user’s system when the system doesn’t recognize that software or a file belongs to a verified publisher. Thus, a code signing certificate is a mandated security tool for any developer or software developing organization. The process of getting a code signing certificate is not just selecting one online and purchasing it; there are various steps involved in the process that help you successfully get your desired code signing certificate, like: 1. Select the right type of code signing certificate that meets your requirements. 2. Generating the Certificate Signing Request (CSR) online. 3. Complete the validation requirements, also known as the CA vetting process, in accordance with the CA guidelines for the type of code-signing certificate you've chosen. 4. Download the issued code signing certificate and install it on your system.
