Any Private Information Would be Disclosed in Code Signing Cert?? RRS feed

  • Question

  • After I code-signed the binary, does it mean users would find my postal address by checking the code signing cert??  I just worry some angry customers would really do something I can't expect...

    What information exactly would be disclosed from the cert??

    Thanks!!

  • It depends if your address was included in the certificate. Since most certificates are issued to businesses and most businesses don't want to stay anonymous the address generally is listed.

    If you ordered through my site I can ask that the address be removed and the certificate re-issued (http://codesigning.ksoftware.net) but I'm not sure if other CAs will do that.

    Thanks. But I mean the new cert dedicated for Win8 desktop app's code signing. As I know, it is different from old code signing cert. Thanks.
