    Doubt on signing of Symbian apps

    We are going to submit our application to the ovi store. We already have symbian publisher certificate from symbian signed.

    Is it needed to sign the app only using the Ovi publisher provided certificates ? or can we submit using the symbian provided publisher certificate?

    You need to submit the unsigned sis file to the ovi publish tool. Find all details in above link

    Can you please elaborate more about the different types of certificate you have? If you happen to have TC Trustcenter Publisher ID then you can easily go with Expressed sign(provided that you are using user-grantable set of capabilities). If not, then you need to go through Certified Signing option.

    Express Signed also covers system capabilities requiring no extra approval. (http://wiki.forum.nokia.com/index.ph...ymbian_Signed))

    I think something is still missing from the basics (though you have asked some advanced topics in http://discussion.forum.nokia.com/fo...Qt-Application)

    Signing in the original case works as
    1) you get a Publisher ID from TCT (around 200 something, perhaps $, or EUR)
    2) you get UID for your application
    3) you either write application with this UID, or modify the already written application to have this UID
    4) you create package (makesis)
    5) you sign package (signsis) with Publisher ID
    6) you send signed package to Symbian Signed - for either Express (around 10 something) or Certified Signing (around 150 something)
    7) you get Symbian Signed package, which you can distribute anywhere, including Ovi Store.

    x) when you have Publisher ID, you can get a developer certificate and use it for testing, at home. devcert does not play role in releasing the application

    Original case is expensive in itself, and even if you can afford it, you have to be a firm for step #1. TCT does not sell Publisher ID to individuals.

    This is where Nokia steps into the picture with Ovi Publisher programme. Nokia manufactures its own devices, it can sign anything for them. Nokia also survives if you do not pay 10 EUR per signing, if you develop for its platform and publish the result in its application store.
    In this case you follow the diagram on https://www.forum.nokia.com/Distribu..._signing.xhtml, and use UID-s and certificates assigned by Nokia (Ovi).
    1) you enroll into Ovi Publisher programme (1 EUR)
    2) you get UID for your application
    3) you either write application with this UID, or modify the already written application to have this UID
    4) you create package (makesis)
    5)
    6) you send unsigned package to Ovi QA
    7) application gets into the Ovi Store.

    x) when you are enrolled into Ovi Publisher programme, you can get a developer certificate for up to 5 devices and use it for testing, at home. devcert does not play role in releasing the application
