code signing certificates

Post by jsira2003@yahoo.com » Sat Jan 12, 2019 8:51 am

I tried a go daddy certificate and I failed to set up the csr. Worked with their support and that went bust. Their documentation and assistance was awful. ssltrust has good info on the process so i am almost ready to try again at the comodo store.

There are 4 types of certificate under consideration. Perhaps you can tell me what will work best with powershell studio. I'll like to put stuff on the microsoft store. Whether or not my app will pass their stringent analysis is another question. First and foremost it must work with powershell studio.

Comodo Code Signing
Comodo EV Code Signing
Microsoft Authenticode Code Signing
Comodo Individual Code Signing

Which type of certificate should I purchase that will work with powershell studio for the apps and scripts that I create?
I need a recommendation.

This has been frustrating. I finally learned how to create a csr request lol.

All these will work with PowerShell Studio, as any code signing certificate. The issue is where it will be trusted.
In general, if you want to distribute software to the general public you should go with what has the highest built-in trust level.

One last question should do it for me. Should the certificate request be made for the machine or the user. I saw something that said the user. Do you have any thoughts on this?

thank,
John

AFAIK code signing certificates are always per organization or user. Never per machine.
