GeoTrust to extend code signing services to Windows Mobile 5.0 Pocket PCs
Posted on 11-May-2005 10:08 | Tags Filed under: News



GeoTrust, Inc. will extend support of its Smartphone Credentials code signing service to support Microsoft Windows Mobile-based Pocket PCs. GeoTrust is announcing the Pocket PC Credentials signing service to coincide with the introduction of the Windows Mobile 5.0 software at Microsoft's Mobile and Embedded DevCon 2005 in Las Vegas.

GeoTrust's Smartphone Credentials, launched in 2003, was the first public security service to ensure the authenticity and integrity of software applications for Microsoft Windows Mobile-based devices.

Leveraging the cryptographic root embedded in the Microsoft Smartphone and Pocket PC platforms, GeoTrust will provide a secure code signing service to Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) that develop applications for the Microsoft Windows mobile environment. This security service will validate the identity of the developer and the integrity of the applications to ensure the code released is the code actually delivered to the mobile device. As a result, mobile phones and mobile computing devices will now have the security to thwart rogue application theft and malicious virus attacks.

"Code signing is about verifying the origin of digital content and the fact that it hasn't changed since it was signed. If you trust the source, then you can trust the application because it comes from a verified source," said Daniel Bouie, marketing manager for mobile devices at Microsoft. "GeoTrust's code signing service has been successfully verifying our partners and authenticating code for Smartphones for the past several years, and we are pleased they will support our new signing program for Pocket PCs."

Support for the Pocket PC Credentials signing service is expected to be available later this year.
