    Driver Package Integrity during Plug and Play Device Installations in Windows Vista

    December 17, 2007



    Abstract

    Windows Vista® now allows any Plug and Play driver to be signed by companies other than Microsoft. This change allows Windows® to verify the origin and integrity of driver packages while giving IT departments and vendors more flexibility in publishing their drivers. This paper gives device vendors and IT professionals a preview of the Windows Vista code-signing policies.

    This information applies for the Windows Vista operating system.
