To request a code signing certificate or a Windows driver signing certificate, you have to provide us a certificate signing request (CSR) generated by the machine you use to sign the code. We'll use the information in this file to validate your request and provide the information to anyone downloading your code or driver.
If you're using Windows 7 or newer you can generate the CSR through Microsoft Management Console (
It's important that you generate the CSR from your local machine and not from the web server you're using to host the file.
|Common name||Your business or organization's name|
|Organization||Your business or organization's name|
|Locality||Your business or organization's address|
|State||The state where your business or organization resides|
|Country||The country where your business or organization resides|
Your CSR is now stored in the file you saved it to on your local machine.
This process also creates a private key, which you will need to use later to create a
PFX file to sign your code or driver.
