I have a kernel mode driver and I have to install it on 64 bit win 7. It needs to be digitally signed. I digitally signed it using the dseo13b.exe. But when I load the driver I get error in the system event log saying
The driver failed to start due to the following error: Windows cannot verify the digital signature for this file. A recent hardware or software change might have installed a file that is signed incorrectly or damaged, or that might be malicious software from an unknown source.
I don't want to use the test signing mode. How do I resolve this? Do I need to get certificate from Microsoft?
I have developed the driver and now making it work on the 64 bit machine.
My company might purchase the certificate from verisign but What do I do after I acquire a certificate. How do I link the driver file with the certificate I get? And Also how do I link the cross certificate downloaded from internet with the certificate I get from verisign? I read the doc KMSC_WalkThru (How to Release-Sign a Kernel Module) but these things were not clear from it. Can you please help.
Also How do I get the following:
mySPCfile.spc Your public key certificate file. myPVKfile.pvk Your private key certificate file. myPVKpassword
The password for the private key certificate file. Mentioned in here
