Signed Binaries

Mar 11, 2010 at 7:11 PM

Has anyone released binaries signed with a digital certificate on CodePlex?  I'd be interested in hearing others' experience dealing with this issue (i.e., noticable difference in downloads/adoption for unsigned vs. signed binaries), and how you went about obtaining the cert and applying to an open source project.  Thx.

I'm skeptical it makes a difference in downloads/adoption, but there are some options for open source projects to obtain a certificate.  Check out the following: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/1177552/code-signing-certificate-for-open-source-projects
