Certificates for installers

Aug 12, 2011 at 8:25 AM


i have idea for installers. Most users see warning messages when they try to download installers (msi) - saying they not signed and probably have viruses.

if codeplex have trusted certificate and each project has its own certificate generated by it - authors could sign everything and no such issues will be.

An upgrade for idea: to not give certificate to users but provide option for publishers to sign with specific for project certificate.

As a checkbox when msi being specified for release
