The GLOBALTRUST CODESIGNING certificate chain
Due to the high flexibility of GLOBALTRUST CODESIGNING, the certificate can be used under any certificate administration. Depending on the product used, the certificate is recognized automatically or the GLOBALTRUST CODESIGNING certificate chain must be installed when using it for the first time (see support information here ).
The GLOBALTRUST root certificate is valid if the SHA1 fingerprint “342C D9D3 062D A48C 3469 6529 7F08 1EBC 2EF6 8FDC” is displayed when installing.
Signing programs and installation packages under Windows
Microsoft provides the signtool.exe program for signing setup programs and installation packages. Development environments, Visual Studio 2015, provide signature functions directly.
Notes from Microsoft on signing (as of 2016/09/23):
Under Linux, the NSIS tool is provided for creating a Windows installer (http://nsis.sourceforge.net/Main_Page). It allows more configuration options and can therefore represent a suitable alternative in individual cases.
