You "lease" a signing certificate, allowing you to sign stuff. It's a toolkit, a small console app

Thanks, then it's very likely to be purchasing one :)

Help me get this right...because I definitely don't understand signing.

My certificate is on my Mac in my Keychain. To sign my installer, I would do something like this:

Code: Select all
productsign --sign "Developer ID Installer: MyCompany" MyInstaller.pkg" MySignedInstaller.pkg"


That's it?


And, did I read that correctly, that I can sign my Windows installer using my Mac certificate? Running the same thing but with my Windows installer that has been copied to my Mac? Would that get rid of the annoying "unknown publisher" Windows warning?

Am I missing anything?

Should work fine yes.

No. Microsoft has only certain CAs installed by default and Apple is not among these.

I found a useful how-to article http://luminaryapps.com/blog/code-signi ... -on-a-mac/
