Code signing is security technology that app developers use to certify that they created the app. Once an app is signed, the device's operating system can detect any change to the app—whether the change is introduced accidentally or by malicious code.
Once you have integrated an app with Blue Cedar, the app must be re-signed to validate that the integration is a deliberate and desired change to the app. The following sections cover the options available for signing secured apps.
The Blue Cedar Platform offers these signing options:
- Sign on Console (include signing parameters when you apply policies). See Signing apps with the policy console.
- Sign externally (the console bundles everything you need to sign off-console). See Signing apps externally.
- Skip code signing.
