Digital Cert to Auth Open Source Developers
Comodo announced new code-signing certificates to verify the authenticity of the developer and the entity developed. Comodo will enable developers to sign into Mozilla extensions or add-ons for a wide variety of different operating systems such as Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X and Linux.
The certificate checks for the XPI file and ensures the safety of the user in the execution of the module. XPI enables developers to create installer modules for their programs meant to enhance applications such as Firefox, Thunderbird, Sea Monkey and Sunbird.
Most browsers will not accept action commands from downloaded code unless the code is signed by a trusted certifying authority, said sources.
Comodo is an issuer of high-assurance digital certificates.
