Working with Trusted Trust Publishers

The development and use of certificates of trust through Microsoft Authenticode® technology helps to provide a secure method of assuring the viability of programs written by third-party vendors. Trusted Trust Publishers (previously known as Trusted Sources) provides a means of cataloging and tracking back to the source who wrote a program and assures that rigorous methods were employed to identify the program as safe for use. The use of trusted Trust Publishers allows users to choose whether to allow executables to run from identifiable vendors.

Administrators have the option of turning off the trusted Trust Publishers feature by setting security to Low, which is not recommended; or by enabling a list of trusted Trust Publishers as a default. When trusted Trust Publishers evaluation is enabled, any executables (add-ins, applets, macros, EXE programs, and so forth) are automatically run from the user’s computer, providing the certificate of trust was accepted and stored in the trusted Trust Publishers segment of a user’s registry.
