Creating a signed certificate for a native extension

You can choose to digitally sign your native extension. Signing an extension is optional.

Digitally signing your native extension with a certificate issued by a recognized certification authority (CA) provides significant assurance to AIR application developers that:

  • the native extension they are packaging with their application has not been accidentally or maliciously altered.

  • you are the signer (publisher) of the native extension.

Note: When an AIR application is packaged, the AIR application’s certificate, not the native extension’s certificate if it is provided, is what the application’s users see.

Obtain a certificate from a certification authority. Creating a digitally signed certificate for your native extension is the same as creating a certificate for an AIR application. See Signing AIR applications in Building Adobe® AIR® Applications .
