    Problem signing with developer certificate

    I've obtained a developer certificate and am now trying to sign my .sis with it, however it's giving error.

    Could not verify signature with known algorithm, exiting.
    encryption error, not a DSA certificate.
    I've tried using the -cr paramater in case it was using RSA not DSA but that got the error

    or:0607907F:digital envelope routines:EVP_PKEY_get1_RSA:expecting an rsa keye
    r:0D0680A8:asn1 encoding routines:ASN1_CHECK_TLEN:wrong tagencryption error,
    not load ApeKey.key.
    Am I right in thinking all you need to do when switching from self certified to developer certificate certified is to switch the .cer file from the self certified one to the developer one? If not guess my problem is there, the documentation seems totally unclear on this.

    Re: Problem signing with developer certificate

    Exactly what commands have you issued, and which file is coming from where?

    Re: Problem signing with developer certificate

    Was just writing up a reply to you, double checking exactly what I was doing and what errors I was getting, then sussed the problem.

    I was supposed to be using RSA encryption not DSA, but there was an extra error there where I was still using my self signed key file instead of my Symbian Signed key file, once got that in and switched to RSA it all worked.

    Thanks.

    Re: Problem signing with developer certificate

    I not understanding the issue.Basically, you could simply do self-made certificate without really caring too much on encryption issues, so can you answer:
    - what have you done ?
    - what is the goal you are trying to do?
    - What are you expecting to happen ?
    - and what are you observing to happen instead ?

    Re: Problem signing with developer certificate

    Ok I have a symbian1 app created in the qt creator.
    I want to submit it to the ovi store but in order to do so I have to sign it with the certificate obtained from nokia publish.
    When publishing with my own developer certificate it builds and runs fine.
    When trying to publish with the certificate obtained from nokia publish it fails with the following error
    "Could not verify signature with known algorithm, exiting.
    encryption error, not a DSA certificate."

    Please let me know if you need more information.

    Re: Problem signing with developer certificate

    I have not checked the Store guidelines recently, but according to my memories you should submit an unsigned package to them. The developer certificate is about testing the application on your own devices, it is not part of the publishing process. (I am in a hurry now, just posting because I see you are still online - I will check the current guidelines later).

    What are the actual steps to reproduce the error ? anyway, I would suppose Wizard already gave solution for the problem.

    Re: Problem signing with developer certificate

    The application cannot run without a certificate as it needs special permissions. And it cannot get published with my own certificate. It might be worth adding that we had no problems with the symbian 3 version of the app with the same process.

    Steps to reproduce is to run the application using Qt creator after telling it to use the given certificates.

    Re: Problem signing with developer certificate

    Running is not requiring certificate, installation is the part it is checked. anyway, I'm still lost on what the problem is, so could you explain in step-by-step manner what you are doing, and then which steps is failing and how. Ans what you are expecting to happen in that step instead.

    Ok I see. I will try to submit the unsigned app for them to certify then. You are correct it is failing on installing
