Win10 driver signing

Maxim_S._ShatskihMaxim_S._Shatskih Member Posts: 10,396
Is the signature (which now requires EV) checked _on load_ or _on install_?

In other words: is the new EV signing hits the place
of KMCS started with Vista x64
OR
of WHQL package signing for PnP started with w2k?

    You understand that the signature on your file that's required in Windows 10 is a MICROSOFT signature... not just your EV Signature. You need the EV signature to be able to SUBMIT your driver to Microsoft for signing by them. Without having to pass, or even take, the tests.

    Submit the _package_? or only the .sys file?

    What about non-PnP .sys files?

    That's a Good Thing, because it implies that this checking will only be
    done at install time, like the current WHQL check. In that case, it
    should still be possible to do testing and filter drivers without this
    additional step.

    I suppose we'll have to wait for the bits to find out for sure.
