Increase Downloads By First Instilling Trust

Code signing certificates are digital certificates that will help protect users from downloading compromised files or applications. When a file or application signed by a developer is modified or compromised after publication, a popup browser warning will appear to let users know that the origin of the file or application cannot be verified.

Why Software Publishers Should Choose Secure128?

Code signing from a recognized and trusted Certificate Authority (CA) provides explicit third-party confirmation of the publisher’s identity. It also helps ensure the integrity of the application since it indicates that code has not been tampered with since the initial digital signature. Just like sealed software purchased at a retail store, code signing can increase customer trust in downloadable applications, and will ultimately help boost your sales and downloads.

Who Requires Code Signing?

What is Code Signing Certificates
Platform Providers

Code signing is already a requirement for any program written for the .NET environment, kernel mode, Adobe AIR, Android, and other mobile platform certifications such as Microsoft Windows Apps Marketplace and Symbian Signed.® These platforms will generate warning messages or refuse to install an application unless its code is signed by a recognized Certificate Authority (CA). For instance, every application running on the Android platform must be signed by the developer. Applications that attempt to install without being signed will be rejected either by Google Play or by the package installer on the Android device. Windows platforms such as Azure, Vista, and Server 2008 also require code signing for the Windows Logo program certification. Trends in the industry indicate that soon all operating systems, application development platforms, and mobile devices will only run signed code.

Network Providers

Network providers are especially wary of buggy or malicious applications and many of them will not run unsigned code. In a network environment, the potential consequences of downloading malicious code include destruction of the mobile device, service interruption, spread of the malicious application, identity theft, and financial damage. The cost of this damage could run into the billions of dollars within minutes. Not only do network providers fear disruption to service, they also fear any kind of negative experience that might drive away customers. Retaining customers is essential to network providers’ business models for sustaining and increasing profitability.


Consumers are increasingly cautious about what they download and install on their systems. When they see pop-ups that warn them about possible threats or untrusted publishers, they’ll either cancel the installation or call for support. To prevent this issue, code signing serves as a “digital shrink wrap”: a way for consumers to benefits from the wider range of choices available through online distribution while getting the same code integrity that they used to get only from physical packages.

Code Signing for Application Stores

If you’re considering deploying your applications through third-party application stores, code signing from a recognized CA will likely be a necessary precondition. Code signing helps all parties to an agreement verify that developers have been authenticated and will follow the guidelines for controlling applications. This builds partners’ trust in the integrity of your code, so they’re likely to deploy those applications more widely and adopt upgrades and new functionality more readily.
