At Thawte, we do our best to provide the most comprehensive information and knowledge to our customers.  Listed here you will find information for maintaining your Code Signing certificates, as well as a few common errors that may occur.

While we do attempt to provide as much information as possible, note that with Code Signing certificates, we may not be able to provide complete information as to the packaging and/or preparation of the files to be signed by these certificates.  In these cases, please contact the vendor you are developing for to assist you further.

Please review Thawte's Code Signing Private Key Protection Recommendations for additional security assurance when using Code Signing certificates.
