Ordina un certificato di firma codice

CertCentral changes for new private key storage requirements

Industry standards will soon require private keys for code signing certificates to be stored on hardware certified as FIPS 140 Level 2, Common Criteria EAL 4+, or equivalent.

DigiCert timeline for meeting new code signing certificate requirements

The changes affect orders placed in CertCentral or via the Services API:

  • May 2, 2023: You can use one of the new hardware token and hardware security module (HSM) provisioning methods when ordering or renewing a code signing certificate.

  • May 16, 2023: DigiCert will no longer accept Code Signing certificate requests using a provisioning method that does not meet the new private key storage requirement. This includes new, renewal, and reissue requests.

  • May 30, 2023: DigiCert will no longer issue Code Signing certificates using a provisioning method that does not meet the new private key storage requirement. This includes new, renewal, and reissue requests.

Prima di iniziare

Importante

Per certificati di firma codice, il settore è passato a RSA con un minimo di chiave di 3072 bit

Per conformarsi ai cambiamenti del settore, DigiCert ha effettuato le seguenti modifiche al nostro processo di certificato di firma codice.

  • Emette unicamente certificati di firma codice con chiave RSA di almeno 3072 bit*

  • Usa nuovi certificati CA intermedi e radice per emettere i nostri certificati di firma codice e di firma codice EV. RSA ed ECC

*Nota: tutti i certificati di firma codice con chiave a 2048 bit emessi prima del 1° giugno 2021 resteranno attivi. Puoi continuare a usare questi certificati per firmare codice fino alla loro scadenza.

Scopri di più sulla variazione ai certificati di firma codice con chiave a 3072 bit.

  • Preconvalida organizzazione

    Assicurati che l’organizzazione a cui vuoi associare il certificato di firma codice (CS) sia stata pre-convalidata per la convalida CS Organization. Nel menu a discesa Organizzazione, elenchiamo solo le organizzazioni con una convalida CS Organization. Consulta Invia un’organizzazione per la pre-convalida.

  • Preconvalida dominio

    Quando si aggiunge un indirizzo e-mail come soggetto di un certificato di firma codice, l’indirizzo e-mail deve includere un dominio convalidato. Ad esempio, se vuoi aggiungere mario.rossi@esempio.com, devi pre-convalidare esempio.com. Consulta Pre-convalida dominio. Solo i domini pre-convalidati sono visualizzati nel modulo d’ordine.

    For example, if you want to add john.doe@example.com, make sure example.com has been validated. See Domain prevalidation.

    Adding an email address is optional. Depending on how your account was set up, you may be unable to add an email address to your Code Signing certificate.

  • Genera CSR

    Se utilizzerai il certificato di firma codice (CS) con la piattaforma Sun Java, devi inviare una richiesta di firma certificato (CSR) insieme all’ordine. Tuttavia, puoi includere una CSR con l’ordine per qualsiasi piattaforma.

    Per restare protetti i certificati devono usare una chiave RSA 3072 da bit o ECC P da 256 bit o più grande. Per trovare istruzioni sulla creazione di una CSR per diversi sistemi operativi e diverse piattaforme, consultaCrea CSR per una richiesta certificato di firma codice.

Ordina il tuo certificato CS

  1. In the left main menu, hover over Request a Certificate , then under Code Signing Certificates, select Code Signing.

  2. On the Request a Code Signing Certificate page, in the For dropdown, select the division to manage the certificate.

    The For dropdown only appears if your account uses Divisions.

Impostazioni certificato

  1. Periodo di validità

    Seleziona un periodo di validità per il certificato: 1 anno, 2 anni o 3 anni.

    If needed, you can customize the expiration date or certificate length. However, you cannot exceed the 39-month maximum code signing certificate validity.

  2. Hash firma

    To set up automatic renewal for this code signing order, check Auto-renew order 30 days before expiration.

    A meno che tu non abbia un motivo specifico per scegliere un hash di firma diverso, DigiCert raccomanda di usare l’hash di firma predefinito: SHA-256.

    Suggerimento

    If your certificate still has validity remaining before it expires, DigiCert adds the remaining validity to your new certificate (up to 39 months).
