Fears Windows code-signing changes will screw up QA process


Those of us that write windows device drivers have suffered with this for a while. You get the best results* with an EV certificate, which only comes on hardware key. When your build server is locked in a server room, or is a VM, or whatever, suddenly everything becomes harder than it needs to be.

I like the approach taken by one of the major consultancies:- (see figure 6).

* a full description of when a non-EV certificate is acceptable is omitted for the sake of brevity and sanity.
