We at Sorcim Technologies Pvt Ltd, digitally sign our software. Let us see in details what digital signatures are, how they are useful, how application files are signed and how a user can verify digital certificates.
Digital Signatures are electronic credentials issued to software publisher company by Certification Authority (CA). Public Keys and Private Keys are associated for the identity of the software publisher, while issuing digital signatures.
The publisher company downloads signing tools from Certification Authorities which are similar to notary public as they sign, verify and track certificate validity.
You’re likely to see a message “The digital signature is OK” whenever the digital signature is valid.
On the contrary, when there are problems with the digital signature or it is invalid, you’ll see a message “This digital signature is not valid”.
