Native Signing Tools

In general, users can sign with Signum using any platform native signing tool that can access certificates using Microsoft's KSP interface for cryptographic service providers, or with a PKCS11 interface. There are several benefits to signing with platform native signing tools including:

  • Users can utilize signing tools they are already familiar with and that are broadly supported by their operating system.

  • Signature verification is simple because it is typically built into the native tool.

  • Eliminates signature formatting issues.
