Java Code Signing Certificates

A Java Code Signing Certificate allows you to sign all kinds of Java applications and applets. When you sign your Java code using a Java Code Signing Certificate, your users will know that it comes from a trusted source (you) and that it hasn’t been tampered with since you signed it. This means that your users won’t see an ugly security warning stating that your application was published by a company that is not trusted:

Instead, when a Java Code Signing certificate is used, your macro will clearly display who published it and allow the user to trust all macros signed by you:

 

By using a Java Code Signing Certificate to sign your applications you:

  • Prove your identity to your users so they are more likely to trust it
  • Ensure that the macro can’t be modified afterwards
  • Show your users that the macro is safe to download and install
  • Protect your brand
  • Avoid scary confirmation dialogs
