    How to Enable or Disable Digital Driver Signing in Windows 7

    Digital Signing of codes is the technique to confirm that the Code is not corrupt or altered by anyone. Also, it confirms about the author of the Code. It provides a wide range of important features. It is most frequently used to provide security while deploying in some languages, it is also used to prevent namespace conflicts. All code signing will implement some sort of digital signatures to authenticate the build system or author, and to authenticate whether the code has been modified or not, by application of checksum. It can also be used to provide information about an object’s version or to store other small data.
