Comodo Code Signing Certificate

HPE Software cares about security.

In accordance with best practices, and to ensure integrity and authenticity, we sign the code binaries delivered to our customers. To do this, we use an HPE code signing certificate issued by a known certificate authority (CA).  

Previously, that CA was Verisign. To enhance our business capabilities, we have moved to a new certificate issued by Comodo.  

Comodo is a part of the Microsoft Trusted Root Certificate Program. You can find a list of all the Microsoft Trusted Root Certificate Program providers here:  

The Comodo Root Certificate was added to this list a few years ago and is distributed via Windows updates. However, on computers with older versions of Windows, or without automatic Windows updates, Comodo may not be included as a trusted root certificate.

In such cases, we recommend manually configuring Comodo as a trusted root certificate. For details about Microsoft trust list distribution and configuration, see:  

This HPE Software code signing change began on January 1, 2017. We encourage all digital certificate owners currently trusted by Microsoft to review the list of trusted providers, and take action as necessary in advance.
