GlobalSign Code Signing Certificates for Macros and VBA are used to digitally sign VBA objects, scripts, and macros within Microsoft Office.
When end users open documents containing unsigned macros, they receive security alerts advising them "not to enable content unless they trust the source of the file". Digitally signing your macro binds your identity to the code and displays your name within the file, alleviating the end user's concern about running code from an unknown source. Any changes to the macro made after the signature has been applied, such as insertion of a virus, will invalidate the signature, protecting your name and reputation.
- Unless you’re adding additional code to your application, a new signature will not need to be applied even if the certificate used to initially sign the code expires.
- Use Internet Explorer 5.0 or higher.
- If you are using Internet Explorer 7 or higher on Windows Vista or higher, please enable Active X.
Add an essential level of trust to the application installation process. The solution is simple - Sign your code!
