for Adobe® AIR®
With code signing from Thawte, you can assure users that your code and content is safe to download, and protect your most valuable business asset: your reputation. Code signing authenticates the code’s source and confirms the integrity of content distributed online. Thawte® Code Signing Certificate for Adobe® AIR® is recognized by Adobe Ajax and Flex files.
- Digitally sign .air or .airi files

- Inspire user confidence by showing customers your verified identity and the integrity of your code.

Thawte® Code Signing Certificates create a unique digital signature with identification information about the publisher of the code and proof of the code’s integrity. A digital signature is required for all Adobe AIR-based applications. When a user encounters unsigned or self-signed applications, a security warning pops up.
When a signed application is encountered, a pop-up notification shows the verified identity of the publisher and the user decides whether or not to trust the code.
- Minimum Browser Requirement: Firefox 1 or higher
