This document answers most commonly asked question(s) regarding Bit9 agent’s certificate and publisher approval.
What’s the difference between approving by Publisher and by Certificate?
If you’re using Trusted Publisher for approval, then, all certificates issued by that publisher are approved. If you’re using Certificate approval, then, only the files signed by that particular certificate will be approved. We use the hash of the approved certificate for verification.
How do I approve using a publisher and by certificate?
To approve by publisher, please see the details on the Using Bit9 Security Platform Guide – V7.2.0 on page 224 and 294.
