Symantec Code Signing

Symantec Code Signing Certificate creates a 'shrink wrap' around the code to secure it. This action is based on public key infrastructure and digital signature technology. Symantec Code Signing certificates help assure your customers about the identity and the authenticity of your software. It verifies the code publisher's identity with a comprehensive authentication procedure and safeguards the contents from any kind of tampering by an unauthorized third party. Obtaining this certificate for your company typically takes between 1-2 business days

With Symantec code signing certificates, developers select a platform, a validity period and install the certificate on their desktop or on a portable device such as a USB drive. These certificates come with Time-Stamping feature, which records and shows when the code was signed. This feature proves helpful for the users to verify that the code signing certificate was valid at the time of digital signature
