Software code signing is the process of verifying software to ensure it has come from a legitimate source. As with your handwritten signature on important documentation, signed software has a digital signature which can be used to authenticate both the software and its origin. Essentially, when you receive a piece of software which has been digitally signed (from a reputable certificate authority), you have a level of reassurance that the software is safe to use.
The distribution of trusted software is vital for the security of remote devices and systems which rely on regular software updates, ensuring that the latest features and security updates are available to users.
With the majority of updates being distributed over public networks and the Internet, devices need a way of verifying the identity of the sender and the authenticity of the updates. For many organisations, digital delivery of software is vital to the very fabric of their operations. Ensuring that third parties cannot change or impersonate their software is vital to prevent the spread of malware and promote trust amongst consumers.
Public Key Infrastructure (PKI)
PKI is the foundation that enables the use of digital signatures and public key encryption, protecting the confidentiality, integrity and availability of code.
Digital code signing is language independent, allowing us to secure a variety of applications
We are able to use a variety of code signing methods including Symmetric and Asymmetric Signing, or certificate-based signing.
Integrates with Hardware Security Modules (HSMs) on-premise or in the cloud.
All communication with Reactions is encrypted and authenticated with client certificates.
