Build secure code signing into DevOps and guarantee the integrity of the code with AppViewX
Access to the code signing keys must be managed by the security teams. While the code signing keys must be protected, DevOps must be able to access the keys.
An enterprise code signing solution must be fast, and efficient, and support agile DevOps processes to keep the CI/CD pipeline moving while supporting security standards.
Code signing needs to be built-in to DevOps processes making it to sign code directly in all CI/CD pipeline tools and platforms.
A code signing system should be deployed transparently for DevOps teams to ensure code integrity and software is delivered with confidence.
Poor code signing practices can create software supply chain vulnerabilities and allow tampered code to be released – opening security vulnerabilities that can put users and customers at risk and damage to the company’s reputation.
Cybercriminals can get hold of unauthorized code signing certificates if the private keys certificates are not sufficiently protected. Attackers can pass off malware or malicious software as legitimate code by stealing a private code signing key.
Compliance issues arise due to manual code signing processes, and the presence of revoked or rogue certificates, leading to hefty penalties. Certificates usually go rogue, when they expire or are compromised due to weak crypto standards.
Non-standard manual code signing leads to poor code signing and security practices, slows DevOps processes and code releases, creates errors, re-work and inefficiencies.
A ready-to-consume, scalable, and efficient certificate lifecycle management (CLM) solution to effectively manage machine identities as an integral part of your cybersecurity strategy.
