Policy Enforcement

Customize application-wide policies and automate key usage permissions, streamlining code-signing lifecycle management.

Policy Enforcement
  • Policy customization enables administrators to define custom policies for their organizations that govern who can sign code, under what circumstances, and with which keys.
  • Strict Role-Based Access Control (RBAC) methods to manage user permissions and access rights. Get different levels of access based on the role to ensure only authorized individuals can access the signing keys.
  • Automated key usage permissions to automatically grant temporary access to keys for specific build processes or integration with CI/CD pipelines for seamless signing.

  • Automated verification feature support process via industry-preferred CI/CD pipelines like Jenkins, GitLab, Azure DevOps, and more.
  • Rapid deployment cycles, guaranteeing efficiency and security for all your code-signing needs.
  • Automation to ensure that all the releases are signed consistently and securely without manual intervention, reducing the risk of human error.
  • Flagging of malware or corrupted code before it reaches the production or release level, disrupting the software supply flow.

Event Logs and Tracking

Customize application-wide policies customizable workflows with detailed audit trails, “M of N” quorum, and multi-tier support for secure and transparent code signing.

Event Logs and Tracking
  • Audit trails to maintain compliance, security monitoring, and detailed incident investigation in case of a security incident.
  • Enhanced transparency to track the software's integrity throughout its lifecycle.
  • A logging system to track changes on the server side to provide valuable insights for troubleshooting, bug resolution, or security analysis.
  • Detailed reports and logs demonstrate compliance with internal policies and external regulations.
Authentication and Authorization

Authentication and Authorization

Seamless integration with identity providers (Azure AD, Okta) for SAML, OAuth, or basic authentication. Direct integration with code-signing tools, eliminating the need for scripts.

  • Multi-factor authentication (MFA) for an added security layer that extends beyond passwords to allow for secure code-signing operations.
  • A detailed and extensive Role-Based Access Control (RBAC) system with customizable workflows prevents unauthorized access and ensures the integrity of certificates.
  • Ensure only authorized personnel can sign codes or access sensitive security keys to prevent insider threats and external breaches.
  • P12 SSL Certificate Authentication on the Client-Side to verify the identity of the signer before allowing access to the code-signing functionality to prevent unauthorized use and enable enhanced tracking of user activity.

Automation & Self Service

Automated signing for fast code signing to reduce dependency and increase efficiency throughout the software distribution cycle. Get support in drafting code-signing policies customized for your organization.

Automation & Self Service
  • Complete automation of approval workflows for code-signing requests, ensuring that each piece of code or software is signed according to predefined policies and procedures.
  • Customizable workflows based on the required policies and team structures.
  • Greater flexibility to eliminate bottlenecks and reduce the time and effort required for manual approvals.
  • Compliance requirements to dictate the ability of authorized users to sign artifacts outlined in the policy.
