Download the Thawte Intermediate CA for Code Signing certificates

Description

Thawte Code Signing certificates require the use of an Intermediate CA to ensure that signed code is fully trusted by users. To download the CA certificate, copy the entire contents of the text box below (including the BEGIN CERTIFICATE and END CERTIFICATE lines) and paste in to a new text document on the computer used to sign code. Do not use "rich" text editors (such as Microsoft Word) to save this text document, as doing so may add extra line break characters in to the certificate.

To install the Code Signing CA, please see the following instructions:
