what is code signing?
Code signing is the method of using a certificate-based digital signature to sign executables and scripts in order to verify the author’s identity and ensure that the code has not been changed or corrupted since it was signed by the author. This helps users and other software to determine whether the executable or script can be trusted.
SPIDER code-signs its programs (i.e. installer program, Add-ins, VBA macros, spreadsheet examples, etc.) offered on the website regardless of their release status (e.g. Beta, General release, etc.). Our digital certificate is issued by Comodo (CA)
