Windows Logo: Code Signing certificates

    Question

  • Hi, the current winqual site allows only Verisign code signing certificates which is very limiting - not everyone can get them, especially individual developers are not capable to get a certificate from Verisign. Will the new Windows 8 Logo program for software allow also other certification authorities like Comodo, GlobalSign, Thawte etc.? Is some preliminary listing available? Some of us, including myself, has our current (non-Verisign) code signing certificates expiring soon so we love to know what certification authorities will be acknowledged by Microsoft for the purpose of the Windows Software Logo certifications, before we need to renew them.

    In case of unclarity, I am interested in certifying traditional desktop apps.
