Re: Code Signing Keys validity

There is no time limit. You get a number of signing operations that you can perform. When that hit's zero then you need to buy a new set of keys.

Re: Code Signing Keys validity

From what I remember, you get 0x7FFFFFFF signs. Every time you sign you get an email telling you how many signature operations you have left.
