Can SignTool only be used to verify whether the file has been signed by a trusted party or not? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I signed a file using SignTool. Now when verifying it the command seems to be something like, "SignTool verify MyControl.exe".  Since I am not specifying any certificate names or public keys I believe that this only checks whether the file was signed or not right? If so, are there any mechanisms using which I can verify the signature at the receiver's end using their public key? Please advice.

  • Hello,

     If you are refering to the executable that is installed with VisualStudio then have a look at these link;

    SignTool Syntax 

    And

    Using SignTool to Sign Files

     Hope this is helpful :)

  • Yes I am referring to that. But what I want to know is the purpose of it. Can it only be used to verify whether a file is signed or not? Resulting in a binary answer(Yes/No). Can't we use it to verify whether the exe was signed using a particular private key?
