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.
