    Check your Code-Signing Certificate Expiry Date!


    Is your code-signing certificate due to expire? I would strongly suggest to
    check this now! It is important you renew your certificate before the
    expiry date. Once the certificate expired, you are unable to code-sign your
    applications and/or installations!


    Please note that Comodo does not send renewal reminders!

    To avoid having to resign software every time your certificate expires, use
    the timestamping service. When you sign code, a hash of your code will be
    sent to Certification authority to be timestamped. This means that you will
    not need to worry about re-signing code when your Digital ID expires.
    Microsoft Authenticode allows you to timestamp your signed code so that
    signatures will not expire when your certificate does.

    As a service to our customers, we have partnered with Comodo, Inc., a
    leading WebTrust Compliant Certification Authority, to offer Comodo's range
    of Code Signing Certificates and Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) based
    Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) certificates to qualified Lindersoft customers.
    If your Verisign or Thawte certificate is due to expire soon, Lindersoft
    customers can switch to a 3-Year Comodo certificate for just $200 instead of

    Do the math: a Verisign Code Signing Digital ID costs $499 for 1 year, $895
    for 2 years and $1,295 for 3 years. A Thawte Code Signing Digital ID costs
    $299 for 1 year and $549 for 2 years. A Go Daddy Code Signing Certificate
    costs $199.99 for 1 year, $359.98 for 2 years and $509.97 for 3 years.
