"For years, developers have known that one of the best ways to reassure users is by signing code using a digital signature accessed via a private key issued by a respected certificate authority. But signed code is not invulnerable. Due to lax key security and vetting processes, malware has managed to infiltrate applications with signed code. Extended Validation (EV) Code Signing Certificates help to halt malware infiltration by requiring a rigorous vetting process and helping ensure that private key security cannot be compromised. EV certificates require a hard token and associated PIN in order to sign code, introducing a more secure physical factor of authentication to the signing process. The EV Code Signing process provides browsers, operating systems, and security software an additional source of confidence in applications signed with an EV certificate. Read the white paper, Protect Your Applications—and Reputation—with Symantec EV Code Signing, to learn: • Key background on the latest malware threats • How you can provide users with reassurance that your application is safe to download • Why EV Code Signing Certificates represent the next step in advanced website security and their effectiveness • How you can help provide a frictionless experience when users attempt to download your application "

"SSL certificates have moved beyond the ‘Buy’ page. They are embedded in your business. In fact, SSL Certificates are a business-critical part of your IT infrastructure. However, managing individual certificates in a large organization is complicated by multiple locations, many servers, different business units, and rapidly growing Web-based services. The risks of hiccups and problems increases with the number of certificates, including lost sales when customers see security warnings about expired certificates on your site, damage to your brand and consumer trust because of problems with certificates and more. With these risks in mind, this guide provides five simple steps for IT professionals to take control of SSL certificates across the enterprise, and recommendations centralizing certificate management throughout their lifecycle."

The foundation of trusted Internet communications are Secure Socket Link (SSL) certificates, an encryption technology installed on Web servers that permits transmission of sensitive data through an encrypted connection. Using a public-key infrastructure (PKI), SSL certificates authenticate the end-use Website and the endpoint server, making it difficult for those sites to be imitated or forged.The acquisition of SSL certificates should always be a relatively easy experience; however, the purchasing decision should never be regarded lightly.

"There are many reasons why now is the right time to make the move to Microsoft Exchange Server 2010,including a host of administration and security improvements. However, as with Microsoft Exchange Server 2007, Exchange 2010 requires SSL certificates to ensure the security of all connections to the email server. This guide from Thawte is designed to take the guesswork out of implementing SSL for Exchange 2010, making it easier than ever to get the SSL certificate you need for a successful and secure Exchange implementation, and to take advantage of powerful capabilities such as Subject Alternative Names (SANs)."

Many security-minded organizations utilize code signing to provide an additional layer of security and authenticity for their software and files. Code signing is carried out using a type of digital certificate known as a code-signing certificate. The process of code signing validates the authenticity of legitimate software by confirming that an application is from the organization who signed it. While code-signing certificates can offer more security, they can also live an unintended secret life providing cover for attack groups, such as the Suckfly APT group. In late 2015, Symantec identified suspicious activity involving a hacking tool used in a malicious way against one of our customers. Normally, this is considered a low-level alert, however, the hacktool had an unusual characteristic not typically seen with this type of file; it was signed with a valid code-signing certificate. Download this whitepaper to find out more about how you can protect your business from such threats.
