How The Publisher is Affected by Code Signing Certificate Changes
That being said, let’s get into it!
If you use the Publisher in conjunction with WSUS/Configuration Manager, you are required to have a trusted code-signed certificate so that Patch My PC can publish third-party updates in your environment.
So, if you cannot use these public CA code signing certificates, what can you do? You have two options:
- You can transfer to a self-signed certificate (which you can read more about here: What is the WSUS Signing Certificate and How to Create It – Patch My PC).
- If your organization has an internal CA, you can request and use a code signing certificate from within your own organization.
Hopefully this gives you an idea of how to work with the changes we’ve seen to Public CA certificates earlier this year. If you need further assistance, please feel free to reach out to [email protected].
