Code Signing Tool

In my previously post I put in a nice word for COMODO Code Signing Certificate. In this blog entry I will introduce the tool, SignGUI to digitally signing solutions in an easy and smooth way.

SignGUI is a graphical front end for Microsoft’s SignTool.exe console utility. It’s free and can be downloaded from Briggs Softworks.

The following screen shot is rather self-explanatory and that’s all required in order to sign a solution. It’s also possible to create a template file that can be reused:

If I was to summarize these two blog entries about buying certificate and signing with digitally certificate it would be with two words: affordable and easy. What more can we require?

Kind regards,
Dennis

Update 07/27/2011:
K Software has released a free code signing tool, kSign, that is not depended on signtool.exe or signcode.exe. It’s available at the following URL for download: http://codesigning.ksoftware.net/
