GlobalSign Releases Code Signing Certificates for Individual Software Developers
Date:3/2/2010

GlobalSign’s publicly trusted Code Signing Certificates now available to qualified Independent Software Developers.

RSA San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) March 2, 2010 -- GlobalSign Inc (www.globalsign.com), one of the longest established Certification Authorities (CA) and specialists in supplying Digital Identities used to authenticate the publisher of software and produce tamper evident virtual “shrink-wrapped” software, has today announced the introduction of GlobalSign’s Code Signing Certificates for Individual Developers. GlobalSign Code Signing Certificates support many popular developer platforms ranging from Microsoft Authenticode (including the new Windows 7 and VBA) to Adobe AIR.

Up until recently, developers of downloadable software had little choice on how to secure their application, protect their brand identity, and reduce download abandonment due to un-trusted warning messages that result from unsigned or self-signed code. More and more operating systems insist that code available for installation be digitally signed to provide the recipient assurances that the identity of the publisher has been verified by an independent and trusted source and that the code was not altered after it was signed. Pop-ups ranging from Running Unsigned Code / Executables can be dangerous! to Publisher = Unknown; “Are you sure you want to install this application to you computer have significant negative business impact, slowing distribution as would-be installers are cautioned to pause or even abandon installation completely.

GlobalSign will continue to offer Code Signing Certificates to publishers affiliated with legal organizations such as enterprise, educational institutes, and government entities; however independent software developers will now be provided an alternative method to obtain a “vetted” digital identity using alternative identity verification processes focused on the individual applicant. In both the case of individual software developers and organization software vendors, the end user experience will be the same in that a trusted message will appear encouraging increased downloads and installations.

“GlobalSign sees expanding publicly trusted code signing to individual developers as an important way to increase the security model for applications developed on key platforms such as Microsoft Authenticode and Adobe AIR. Delivering a secure method to publish software to both Organizations and Independent software developers moves the market one step closer to expecting publically verifiable code as the standard for acceptance.” according to Lila Kee, Director of Product Marketing.
