When downloading software from the Internet, consumers must always be wary of third parties masquerading as the developer of the software. With a resource like code signing, users can be assured the software they are downloading is from a safe source. Code signing is an operation where a software developer or distributor digitally signs the file being sent out, to assure users that they are receiving software that does what the creator says it will. The signature also acts as proof the code has not been tampered with or modified from its original form.
