"For years, developers have known that one of the best ways to reassure users is by signing code using a digital signature accessed via a private key issued by a respected certificate authority. But signed code is not invulnerable. Due to lax key security and vetting processes, malware has managed to infiltrate applications with signed code. Extended Validation (EV) Code Signing Certificates help to halt malware infiltration by requiring a rigorous vetting process and helping ensure that private key security cannot be compromised. EV certificates require a hard token and associated PIN in order to sign code, introducing a more secure physical factor of authentication to the signing process. The EV Code Signing process provides browsers, operating systems, and security software an additional source of confidence in applications signed with an EV certificate. Read the white paper, Protect Your Applications—and Reputation—with Symantec EV Code Signing, to learn: • Key background on the latest malware threats • How you can provide users with reassurance that your application is safe to download • Why EV Code Signing Certificates represent the next step in advanced website security and their effectiveness • How you can help provide a frictionless experience when users attempt to download your application "

Code signing essentially relies on a Public Key Infrastructure, which means code signing certificates are made out of a pair of public and private key - the public key is signed by a trusted Certificate Authority such as DigiCert, and the private key is kept by the owner and used to sign the code to secure. Although the technology behind code signing certificates is proven, managing them - and by extension managing the private keys - is an activity that can be very complex, especially when the key owner(s) do not understand their value. In order to help customers to solve for the shortcomings in regard to the management of code signing private keys and user access, DigiCert has developed Secure App Service.
