Type:  White Paper
Length:  17 pages

The efficacy of code signing as an authentication mechanism for software depends on the secure storage of code signing private keys used by software publishers. Companies that are diligent and willing to invest in the appropriate security measures can make the compromise of their private keys highly unlikely. This white paper describes recent security breaches and why they may have happened, along with best practices, especially for the Windows platform, which can help to safeguard the private keys associated with code signing certificates.
