Introduction

This article describes an update that allows Authenticode Signing for cryptographic service provider (CSP) signatures on a computer that is running Windows XP Service Pack 3 (SP3) or Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 2 (SP2). After you install the update, you can use the Kernel mode Authenticode code signing process to sign a third-party CSP.

Note By using the Authenticode code signing process, third-party manufacturers can issue code signing certificates that certificate authorities provide and that are recognized by Microsoft (such as VeriSign). Then, third-party manufacturers can use the certificates to sign binary files. Because root certificates are cross signed by Microsoft, Microsoft can recognize the certificates. Additionally, The public keys and subject names of the Microsoft cross signing certificates are hard-coded in Windows. Therefore, the public keys and subject names are compared when Windows checks the integrity of Authenticode-signed binary files.

File information

The English (United States) version of this hotfix installs files that have the attributes that are listed in the following tables. The dates and the times for these files are listed in Coordinated Universal Time (UTC). The dates and the times for these files on your local computer are displayed in your local time together with your current daylight saving time (DST) bias. Additionally, the dates and the times may change when you perform certain operations on the files.
Windows XP and Windows Server 2003 file information notes
  • In addition to the files that are listed in these tables, this hotfix also installs an associated security catalog file (KBnumber.cat) that is signed with a Microsoft digital signature.
  • This update contains the binary files for the Windows XP SP3 LDR service branch but does not contain the binary files for the Windows XP SP3 GDR service branch. This is by design. All future updates for Windows XP will also contain only the binary files for the Windows XP SP3 LDR service branch.
