Hi,

For the frustration of trying to get a code signing certificate from the Comodo company I have something to say 

I decided to try and find a reasonable priced code signing certificate authorities ("low budget for a not a wealthy person") and the solution from there (Comodo) seemed reasonable enough.

The rant begins 

  • There is no mention that I'll have to provide a copy of my passport or driver's license or such 
  • There is no mention that I should fill this ridiculous form with a notary or a lawyer 
  • This all was done to prevent the "illusion" that the downloaded installer software, i.e. was somehow insecure 
  • In Finland we do strong digital authentication via the bank's system of which customer you are - so do I really have to go back to the 80's again 

 

So now and not very soon to be fixed you are going to cope with this:

And the second one:

 

Well - I'm not spreading any viruses here - but I can't / won't do this ridiculous notarizing with extra costs ()!

PS. The home "infrastructure" is behind a double firewall and all the PC's are protected with an antivirus software depending of the OS they using and all computers are behind a NAT.

If any of you have an idea of an easier code signing certificate, please do not hesitate to contact me via This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
