Code Signing

Symantec Code Signing creates a digital "shrink-wrap" for secure distribution of code and content over the Internet. Symantec Code Signing adds a level of trust by providing third-party authentication of the code signer, recognized worldwide.


What are Code Signing Certificates?

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.

Symantec Code Signing helps you securely deliver your apps and code to more customers, on more platforms than any other provider.

Maximize Distribution and Revenue on More Platforms

Symantec root certificate ubiquity is second to none. Our root certificates come preinstalled on most devices and are embedded in most applications, helping you minimize security warnings while maximizing distribution and revenue. Symantec is the only authorized code signing provider for Windows Phone, AT&T Developer Program, Java Verified, and Symbian Signed applications.

Rely on the Trusted Certificate Authority (CA)

More developers and publishers rely on Symantec for their code signing than any other CA. In fact, 7 out of 10 code signing users choose Symantec for code signing. (U.S. online survey conducted by Symantec and The Code Project, September 2011).

  • Symantec’s rigorous authentication practices, established by VeriSign and audited annually by KPMG, lead the industry in reputation qualification measures.
  • Symantec’s robust PKI infrastructure includes military-grade data centers and disaster recovery sites for unsurpassed customer data protection, availability, and peace of mind.

Symantec Code Signing helps ensure a safe, secure experience for you and your customers.
