Script-signing is a highly-recomended best practice in PowerShell and the best way to prevent accidentally changed scripts or scripts downloaded from the internet and not properly tested and verified to be executed in your environment.
Kirk’s add-on is a great way to have code-signing integrated right into your script development environment absolutely for free. This is also one of our most popular add-ons which already had more than 700 downloads.
The new features include:
- Replaced test certificate functionality with View Certificate, and updated result to show the certificate properties in the native windows dialog,
- Updated script signing certificate search algorithm to search only in the “My” containers (the only places where script signing certificates will be stored),
- Switched the default signing method to include all certificates in the chain.
