Driver Signing Certificates

For Companies and Independent Developers

So you need to sign a driver, eh? We can help, and at prices much, much lower than Verisign's (see the above comparison!). The certificates sold here are exactly the same validation level at less than half the price. Ours aren't sale or promotional prices so if you find a lower normal price for a comparable driver signing certificate please let us know and we'll do everything we can to beat it.

What is a driver signing certificate?

Starting with Windows Vista, all 64-bit drivers for Windows have to be digitally signed by an appropriate code signing certificate issued from a supported CA. Our driver signing certificates are issued by DigiCert and are fully recognized by Microsoft for driver signing as well as all other types of digital signature operations. A kernel mode driver signing certificate is a higher level certificate than most and very few certificate authorities can issue them.

Our driver signing certificates will work for Java, Adobe, Microsoft Authenticode, Microsoft Office (VBA macros), OSX, Android and iPhone.

It is important to note that if you only need to sign applications and other files that are NOT Windows drivers our standard code signing certificates will work for you and are quite a bit less expensive.

We recommend reading Microsoft's Driver Signing Policy for more information on how and why digital signatures are now required for Windows drivers.

Microsoft's Kernel-Mode Code Signing Walkthrough provides detailed information on the process of signing and testing driver files, including :

  • Getting Started with Code Signing
  • Code Signing Tools Overview
  • How to Test Sign a Kernel Module
  • How to Install and Load a Test-signed Driver Package
  • How to Troubleshoot Test-Signed Drivers
  • How to Release Sign a Kernel Module
  • How to Install and Load a Release-signed Driver Package
  • How to Troubleshoot Release-Signed Drivers
  • How to Disable Signature Enforcement on a Test Computer

We also have a tutorial in our knowledgebase that covers driver signing and gives an example of how to use signtool to sign your .sys files, see the tutorial titled How do I use a Kernel Mode Driver Signing Certificate to sign driver files?
