Secure OS - CE 6 R3 - Certificate installation? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm trying to develop a CE6 R3 image that will allow only code that has been signed by my organisation to run on the device.

    As I understand the steps, I must:

    1. Add SYSGEN_CERTMOD=1 to the environment variables: I have done this, and worked out that I had to build certmod.lib .. all good. The resulting image runs OK, and runs code in ROM, but will not run code on an SD card .. so that's good.

    2. Add a certificate that will be used to dign the code to the image: This is where I'm stuck. How do I do that? I've tried doing it manually with both a PFX and a P7B format certificate by using the control panel certificates option, but it does not even see the files.

    3. Sign the code .. that's not a problem, I can do that.

    Ultimately I need to build the certificate into the image. I've looked all over the web, read the MSDN documentation, but I can't see any indication of how this is to be done.

    I would greatly appreciate any pointers.
