Comodo EV Code Signing Certificate

Comodo Extended Validation (EV) Code Signing gives your customers the peace of mind to download your software. An EV Code Signing certificate features all the benefits of a regular code signing certificate but offers identity assurance.  Identity assurance is what removes browser warnings and builds file reputation in Microsoft SmartScreen. Your EV Code Signing certificate also features an added layer of security — your private key will be physically stored on an external hardware token. This eliminates any risk of unauthorised use of your code signing certificate. In 2018, code signing is a requirement. Take the extra steps to not only guarantee your software’s integrity — but also to verify your identity to your customers.

Note: since the private key is stored on the hardware token, for security it cannot be copied or exported to create a PFX file.

Note: Please use Microsoft Internet Explorer 11 or Mozilla Firefox to collect your certificate. Code Signing certificates cannot be generated using Apple Safari, Google Chrome or Microsoft Edge.
