    Post Digital Signing Certificate question

    Hi there,

    I have developed an AIR application I want to digitally sign it when compiling it.

    I know I can buy the certificate from thawte etc... However, I have already bought a security certificate for my website https transactions.

    Can I use that certificate for signing our app or are SSL certificates and signing certificates different?

    Regards,

    Andrew.
    Regards, Stooshie

    Nope, it's a different kind of certificate. Flash Builder will help you create a self-signed one if you are just testing or don't care about the "UNVERIFIED" message in the installer. Keep in mind that if you distribute the app with the self-signed certificate and you want to use a cert that you buy later, you have to sign the app with both certs or your users will get cert mismatch errors in the installer.

    Hi there,

    Thanks for that.

    I have already been self-certifying for pre-alpha testing in the office. I need a trusted certificate for alpha/beta testing as I don't wan't to have to include an un-trusted certificate in the final app or have the users install a totally new app.

    I'll go and get another certificate.

    Thanks again.
