Taggant system + Code Signing Certificate

Postby nightfreak » Mon Nov 06, 2017 8:11 pm

Hello,

I have a Code Signing certificate with extended validation (EV).
Should I use the Taggant System option when using my Code Signing Certificate?
Or does the Taggant System option do the same as signing my application with a Code Signing Certificate but with the difference that the taggant system has no recognised certificate from a Certificate Authority?

Regards,
Chris

Please notice that the Taggant System was developed for antiviruses and only antiviruses check the Taggant's signature.

ok, so the best for not getting false positives is to use taggant system and afterwards sign the application with my certificate?
I thought maybe the taggant system is the same like signing with my certificate...

The taggant system and signing with your certificate are not the same.
