Many customers apply for code signing certificates with the original intention of solving the problem of software being falsely reported by antivirus software, but this is actually a misunderstanding of many people.

The code signing certificate cannot directly help the software that is reported to be poisoned, including the software that is falsely reported, to pass the anti-virus software's anti-kill detection directly.

If your software does contain viruses and malicious code, then even if you apply for a code signing certificate to add a digital signature to these malicious software, you will still be identified by dangerous antivirus software for inspection.If your software is only falsely reported, we recommend that you submit a complaint directly to the official antivirus team that was falsely reported.

So, what is the role of a code signing certificate?

1. Let the software you publish have a digital identity. Users can see what the identity of the software publisher is when starting and running the software, thereby increasing the user's sense of security and trust in the software, and improving users' confidence in the software.Install usage.

2. Once the software that has been digitally signed is tampered with without authorization, the digital signature will be invalid immediately, and the user will be prompted with a security warning such as the software has been tampered with when using the software.Of course, if it is a planned software upgrade, the digital signature can be re-issued after the upgrade.

3. The code signing certificate can help software obtain Microsoft's SmartScreen reputation. Software that is not trusted by Microsoft will be blocked or warned to varying degrees during downloading, installation and running, which will seriously affect the software experience.At the same time increase the user's distrust of the software.
