And at the final step, a CA representative will contact you on the provided telephone number to confirm the order details.

The original source code will get converted into a hash digest. Then, the certificate takes the hash file as input and performs encryption upon it.

As the final output, you will receive signed software ready to be installed on compatible platforms without showing the end user any installation-associated warning.
