Performing Code Signing

The process of performing the code signing can begin once the Code Signing certificate is issued to the requestor.

Gathering the Required Tools

The Microsoft Windows Software Development Kit Update for Windows Vista includes a code signing tool (SignTool.exe) that enables code signing of any application. SignTool includes the following options:

  • sign. Digitally signs the application at a command prompt.

  • signwizard. Uses the signing wizard to digitally sign the application (recommended).

  • timestamp. Applies a time stamp to a previously digitally signed application.

  • verify. Verifies a digitally signed application.
