These are signed Java applets I know of that are publicly available on the Web. If you know of other examples please let me know.
I wrote a set of signed applets for The Analytical Engine Online, a Computer Science textbook and web site. Each applet allows the user to save/load their work to/from their local hard disk, and are signed for both Internet Explorer and Communicator/Navigator. (Before you ask, I can't give out the source code for these.)
Signing Software with Netscape Signing Tool 1.1 (as of 3/7/03): <http://developer.netscape.com/docs/manuals/signedobj/signtool/index.htm>
The Microsoft Java SDK 2.02, which contains
VeriSign, at <http://www.verisign.com/>, is a full-service on-line vendor of software signing IDs. They also provide their customers with a timestamping service at <http://timestamp.verisign.com/scripts/timstamp.dll> (this URL can only be used by
Thawte Certification, at <http://www.thawte.com/>, is a recently established CA. Their (latest) claim to fame is that you only need one $200 (as of 9/3/99) certificate for both Netscape Object Signing and Microsoft Authenticode. For more info on this, see <http://www.thawte.com/certs/developer/diffapps.html>. They have a number of other useful pages:
SECUDE is a new certificate authority; when last I checked they didn't seem to provide certificates for signing software: <http://www.secude.com/trustfactory/>
Belsign is a new CA which apparently can generate software signing certificates for Navigator; they're at <http://www.belsign.com/> (I don't know anything more about them).
Microsoft has a number of useful web pages:
Netscape also has a number of good pages:
And of course, there's always Sun:
For a good overview of this process, along with information on Netscape's Capabilities API, see Joe Bowbeer's article Signing Applets for Internet Explorer and Netscape Navigator: <http://ourworld.compuserve.com/homepages/jozart/article/index.html>. (Note: this article was in the June 1997 issue of JavaUniverse, which has since gone the way of all flesh. The author has reposted it on his own site.)
