How Code Signing Works

How does Signing process work in Standard Code signing?

Code Signing certificate is used to sign executables, drivers, scripts, applications, macros, plugins with a strong digital signature. Code Sign Certificate verifies a publisher’s identity and ensures users that they are dealing with the authenticated software. Code Sign certificate is backed by a timestamp that does not let the code expire even if the certificate is expired. Users will not get any warning due to timestamping and can download software. The process of Code Signing certificate is as below:

How does Signing process work in Standard Code signing

  • A digital signature is added to the code/content with a private key associated with the code signing certificate. When a digital signature is added, a hash is also created, which should be matched when a user downloads a code.
  • Upon downloading software code, the public key on the user’s system is used to decode the signature.
  • While downloading the code, the system looks for a root certificate, which is tied with an identity to authenticate the signature.
  • A user’s system compares both the hashes: one has which was used in signing an application and the other hash during the downloading an application.
  • If both hashes match, the code is Authenticated, and the download begins; otherwise, it will show an “Unknown Publisher” warning. A pesky warning reduces download ratio of software, driver, application. A valid software code removes unwanted warnings with a code signing certificate.

How does Signing process work in EV Code signing?

EV Code Signing certificate immediately establishes a publisher’s reputation with the Microsoft SmartScreen Application Reputation filter that increases users’ trust and confidence level. Extended Validation Code signing certificate brings the highest validation by confirming an organization’s registration details. A real identity augments download rates, and there will be no space for an “Unwanted Publisher” warning. The process of EV Code Signing certificate is as follows:

How does Signing process work in EV Code signing

  • Once the software is created, it is ready for hashing and confirms that the software has not been tampered. If the downloading software does not reveal the correct hash, it means the software code has been tampered.
  • It means both hashes created at the time of signing code as well as at the time of downloading software files should be matched. Else, it will give an ‘Unknown Publisher’ warning.
  • Once the hashing is done, it is time to digitally sign and timestamp the code with a private key stored on an external hardware token. A digital signature authenticates the publisher, and browsers could easily know the publisher’s name and its trustworthiness.
  • After hashing, signing, and timestamping the software, it is distributed publicly for download. Both hashes should be matched during downloading. Once both hashes match, users can download software. Browsers easily know the publisher’s name and decide whether to trust the code or not.

How Standard Code signing and EV Code Signing Verifies Code Integrity?

Code Signing certificate can be verified with tools offered sometimes by certificate authorities. However, you can verify the code on Windows and Microsoft SDK, which we have explained as below:

How does Signing process work in EV Code signing

  • You need to the right click the apk file.
  • Browse to the Properties section
  • Select the Digital Signatures tab.
  • Here, you will see the signer name, used algorithm, timestamping with the mentioned date.

Verify Code Sign through Microsoft SDK

In Windows 7 and .NET Framework 4, Microsoft SDK- a utility tool to verify the signature is used. The process to authenticate the signed code is as below:

  • SignTool verify MyControl.exe (For testing a signed apk)
  • SignTool verify /v MyControl.exe (To get a signer of the certificate)
