Has anyone here used Code Signing to authenticate your application exe / dlls and any updates you supply to customers?

Do you use an OV or an EV certificate?

It looks like for our purposes an OV woould be fine.

Is the signing process itself simple?

These certification companies seem to offer pretty much the same service but at quite wildly different prices. Difficult to know which is best for your company.... :-)

We use Microsoft Authenticode certificates from Symantec, standard edition. I renewed them about 16 month ago, next time will be in 8 month. I remember it is a little difficult - we needed to use the same computer again on which the first certificate was installed. IE/Edge are (were?) necessary for that. After the certificates were acquired, we had to export them as PFX-files. We use the "signtool" (cli) for signing the EXEs and DLLs, which is a part of windows and/or available (free) from Microsoft. Signing can be done on any computer that has the PFX and knows the keys. Acquiring the certificate is limited to one computer.

Thanks, Tom and Klaus

I kind of expected that the certificates worked like that.

I have passed the info on to my colleague, Steve, as he's the one that will ultimately decide who we get the certificate from (and pay for it :-).
