Digitally Signed Software
Software that is downloaded from the Internet to users' computers can contain programs such as viruses and Trojan horses that are designed to cause malicious damage or provide clandestine network access to intruders. As networks become more interconnected, malicious software and viruses also become a threat to intranets. To help counter this growing threat, you can digitally sign the software that you distribute on your intranets or the Internet to ensure its integrity and to assure others that the software can be trusted. Signed software ensures that users can verify the origin of the software, as well as verify that no one has tampered with it.
