kernel mode driver signing for Windows 10 IoT Enterprise 2016 LTSB 64bits(no need windows update and windows logo) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi
    We have developed a kernel mode driver for Windows 10 IoT Enterprise 2016 LTSB 64bits.
    This driver doesn't need "windows update" and "windows logo". 
    We will release it to our customer directly and they will use this driver to do something in their windows application.
    So we only have to sign this driver with "EV Codesigning Certificate" and our customer could use this driver in Windows 10 IoT Enterprise 2016 LTSB 64bits, am I right?
    or we also have to commit the driver to "Windows Hardware Dev Center Dashboard"?

  • Drivers for Windows Server 2016 must be signed by Microsoft in order to be trusted on the system. This can be done by submitting the driver to the Widows Hardware Dev Center Dashboard. There are different signing options available there and here are some articles which explain them.

  • The doc in the link for attestation signing is out of date and doesn't work. It fails when you get to step 1 under:

    Submit the EV signed Cab file using the Partner Center

    Does anyone have a solution?
