Software developers digitally sign their software programs, apps, and drivers, with code signing certificates to prevent tampering or compromise of applications by unauthorized parties.

These digital certificates are especially useful in applications that are distributed through the Internet, where applications can pass through a number of suspicious parties or websites before it finally gets downloaded and installed.

Unsigned applications can easily be altered to include malware or viruses, and these untrusted applications will display warning messages resulting in lower installation yields. A code signing certificate issued from a trusted Certificate Authority such as SSL.com can prevent all of those problems.

Code signing certificates can be enrolled to SSL.com eSigner cloud code signing service which lets you conveniently add globally trusted digital signatures and timestamps to your software code from anywhere, with no need for USB tokens, HSMs, or other special hardware.
