Fast Remediation Options
Azure Key Vault Code Signing enables quick detection and investigation of any improper certificate use. It offers swift revocation options, helping you maintain your software's security posture effectively.
Digitally Sign your Package with Azure Key Vault Code Signing
When a package is unsigned, it's like a letter without a verified sender. Users have no guarantee of its origin or if it has been intercepted and altered. Because of this, unsigned software packages are met with skepticism and warnings, deterring users from proceeding with the installation.
Signed packages are like a notarized document, offering a clear assurance of legitimacy. These packages (specifically signed by Azure Key Vault Code Signing) have a verifiable digital signature from a trusted Certificate Authority (CA). When users see a verified digital signature, they proceed without hesitation, secure in the knowledge that they are installing genuine software.
Azure Code Signing (ACS) Requirement/Compatibility
Azure Code Signing is mandatory for ensuring software authenticity on Windows, and Endpoint Protection vendors (like Sophos) must align with ACS to maintain software integrity. Windows 11 & Windows 10 versions 22H2 and 21H2 come with built-in ACS support. Currently, all new software installations must comply with ACS.
What is Azure Code Signing 21H2?
Azure Code Signing 21H2 is the application of Microsoft's Azure Code Signing service for Windows 11, version 21H2. This service attaches digital signatures to Portable Executables (PE), certifying their integrity and confirming they remain unmodified post-signing. It serves as an essential security protocol for user mode applications. Specifically, it benefits those requiring registration with the Windows Security Center, like - "anti-malware" and "anti-cheat software."
