2. Choose code signing and then click on the link to install.

3. Wait for certificate to become valid on your computer.

4. Download Microfost Code signing SDK

well, sice i wish to sign this:
"DVR System from Eyemax
WebDvr.cab
Unknown publisher"
I think i must choose a server certification, but now in the ascertia.com and it is askin me for :
- CSP
- Key Usage
- Key Size
- Enable strong private key protection
- Mark key as exportable

What settings would be better for sign the cab file i mentioned?

Thanks in advance.

ok this is my goal: we purchased a DVR (digital video recording, its called EyeMax) system and it comes with a WebServer, then it supposly we can access to the cameras views from a url.
When i launch the url of the server it says that windows has blocked that content because is untrusted, then i signed the .cab file of the web server according this procedure: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/q247257/

After windows is still blocking the concents since it is issued by root and windows cannot validate it.

How can i do? Should i pay $499 for buy a verisign sign in order to validate a .cab file of a sofware that i already purchased?
Thanks in advance

if you sign the .cab with some certificate, you need to load the CA's corresponding certificate into the browser's certificate store.
Typically there are some certificates pre-loaded (Verisign etc.).

I assume the certificate is issued for some host "server.domain.com".
You need to access the server with this name.
If there is no other way, you can add "server.domain.com" to the hosts file.
On W2K/WXP this file is located in C:\WinNT\System32\drivers\etc
Add a line
Code: Select all
127.0.0.1 server.domain.com

I asume this eyemax has already got a certificate. i just got myselff IPVIDEO (not bad for cctv very fast on a LAN but gets a bit slow over the net) to test out and it too has a built in webserver and a active-x component wat loads up when you connect. You dont need a server certivicat for this nor is there any need to sign the cab. I should have one already. I suspect your browser is set to block active-x componets

What you need to do is install the active-x compnent. Normaly it pop up a little blue box under the taskbar.

Once this is installed you will be able to see your CCTV or other. (TV :) hehhe

BIG note, active-x componets are basicly application. Dont just accept any old componet when you surf the net. If you not sure about a site dont install, Some (poeple form the darkside) are potential spyware or worse. (No worries mate i am sure EYEMAX is ok, since it is a honest product)

There is another way. In your browser you can add the cctv url or IP as a trusted site and should also fix this. (DO NOT lower your security on your browser, many people do and then wonder why they keep getting viruses and spyware,even hackers)


On this note i would like to point out 2 thing not related to your question.
CODESIGNing and SSL Certificates are two diffrent thing. One is you get a certificate and you use a application to sign your cab file. This mean you got the cab or exe (you developed it and want people to use it)file and you wish to encode the file with your certificate so when you deploy the file people and webbrowsers will know who maded it and whether it should be trusted.

(Note so whats so nice about COD SIGNING? People can see who it is from and can track back to verify it came form you)

2. a SSL certificate you can only install on a webserver and is more inteneded to encrypt data when it is transmitted over the internet. What you need to do here is to open 443 and in IIS enable SSL on this same port, Then you go and create a pending request. IIS spits out some code for you and you take this code to the cert auth and enter it and it gives you back some other code. You then go back to IIS and open the pending procees and enter this code and when done and all is sucessull IIS then has SSL, good and proper untill the certificate becomes invalid. Then you start all over again. Linux has a simular setup.
The big thing here to remember is that all information you eneter must be 100% correct. Trust me i have redone and revoked many many certificates from typo's and wrong information. Verisign give you a month to fix certificates before you loose your money.

If you are after one of these certificates what work on webserver check this link out they offer these free.

http://cert.startcom.org

Please note all information is USE AT YOUR OWN RISK.
Since i dont control what or where or who!

I see a need for a security doc and will head up a new topic.

Cheers

thanks for the detailed information, in my case i cannot install the eyemax activex component because windows its blocking it just after i accept the pop message wich ask me for accept it (when the client is in the same vlan it installed like a charm, problem is then the client its in a remote network). So it is being bloked even If i add the ip address of the webserver in to my trusted sites list of Internet explorer.

Do you think cause of my problems are that the server has a windows home edition installed?

Thanks in advance.

No i dont think thats the problem.
I too noticed a thing or two about my IPVIDEO.

1. I wanted full screen mode to work. It seemed fine when i connected to the book and it gave me the Active X cab with noproblem, But when i spoke with Charles (Genius) He showed me another way. Seems that IPVIDEO had some hidden windows. Best of all is it had IMAGE VIEW , JAVA and ACTIVE X in the SIMPLE window view. Nothing you read in the manual, found a few sites with more info.

Here too i could not load the ACTIVE X cab. Windows just dumpted me a cab file not trused.

Charles showed me some code to minipulate the video.

<html>
<body>
<IMG width=320 height=240 SRC="http://yourvideoipaddress.com/GetData.cgi" >
</body>
</html>

See if you EYEMAX has a IMG or JAVA setting or as above .cgi

The CGI only seemed to work in Firefox as IE just did not know what to do with it and passwords.

Hope this helps.

Sugar did you ever get this issue resolved using the code manipulation? I would most certainly love to know! I am having the same issues!
