Code Signing – a fundamental way to secure innovation
Software is increasingly becoming the target of cyber-crime, being maliciously altered or falsified in pursuit of fraudulent or even terroristic objectives. Software developers and distributors are recommended to code-sign their software. Digitally ‘signing’ the file that is to be distributed provides proof that the code has not been tampered with and that it is coming from a known source.
HSM-based code signing is the most secure way to physically and digitally secure code.
