Code Signing Certificates

What is a code signing certificate? A code signing certificate is a digital certificate that contains certain information that identifies an organisation, and that has been issued by a Certificate Authority. The digital certificate binds the identity of an organisation to a public key, itself linked to a corresponding private key pair. This private and public key system is called a PKI infrastructure. The developer signs their code with their private key, while the end user uses the developer's public key to verify the identity of the developer.
