Sectigo Extended Validation Code Signing Certificate comes with a wide range of features to help your software products become a customer favorite through building user’s trust, thus improving your conversion rate.
Sectigo EV Code Signing Certificate offers an instant boost of reputation by Microsoft SmartScreen Filter. Microsoft’s SmartScreen Application filter is considered as one of the most difficult filters. If software or application is not from a well-known source or is suspicious of being malicious this filter will show warnings to the end-user. So, by using EV Code signing certificates in your software products, Microsoft SmartScreen Filter will extend a great deal of trust, thus improving your brand reputation.
In the Sectigo EV Code signing certificate, the private key is pre-stored in an encrypted token on an external USB device. Thus the sign code can be accessed only if you have the USB with you. This double layer of physical security prevents anyone from accessing your code in unauthorized ways.
In order to obtain the Sectigo EV Code Signing certificate, you must go through strict vetting processes. During this application process, all the key information such as the publisher’s name, physical address, and jurisdiction all are strictly verified. This publisher’s identity vetting will help in eliminating the chances of duplication.
This EV code signing certificate is compatible with almost all platforms.
The working of the Sectigo EV Code Signing Certificate can be explained in two parts: Signing the code and verifying the code. Let’s see in detail.
In the diagram above at first, the original software code is hashed using a hash function to make it more secure. This will assure the end-user that no attackers can alter or tamper with the original code.
Then the digested code is encrypted with a private key stored in an external hardware token, making the code trustworthy to the browsers. Also, browsers can recognize the publisher’s identity.
There will be a copy of the private key which is physically located on the device. Using this private key, a digital sign and a timestamp are also added to the software. This digital signature uses encryption to validate the authenticity and integrity of the code. Now the software or application all set to be downloaded.
Now let’s see how the signed code is verified. This will ensure that the original code is not tampered by anyone since it is published, gaining the trust of browser and the end-user.
In this process, the signed code is decrypted to obtain the original code. Then this original code is compared with the new digest created using the hash function. And finally, the result is verified using the timestamp to ensure the authenticity of the code.
Extended Validation certificates offer twice the security and integrity offered by the standard code signing certificates. Plus when it comes from a brand like Sectigo, it an offer that you cannot refuse to take.
