Code Signing certificates
Code Signing certificates are specific certificates aimed at signing applications. The certificates enable developers and software companies to sign an application to be distributed online. Thanks to the signature, the customer knows whom the application comes from and that it was not changed during the transfer.
Signing an application with a Code Signing certificate ensures the trustworthiness of the application. Any code change is recognized thanks to the signature and the application is marked as untrustworthy. By signing the application with a Code Signing certificate, users can be sure the software definitely comes from the company that created it and that they can trust it.
