How Thawte Code Signing Works

Thawte Code Signing Certificates create a unique digital signature with identification information about the publisher of the code and proof of the code’s integrity. Microsoft applications such as Internet Explorer®, Exchange, Outlook® and Outlook® Express have security features to check for a digital signature and recommend whether or not code should be trusted.

When a user encounters unsigned executables, a security warning pops up or content fails to load, depending on the user’s security settings.

When a signed executable is encountered, a pop-up notification shows the verified identity of the publisher and the user decides whether or not to trust the code. By clicking “More Info”, the user can inspect the certificate.
