SignKey clarification?

Can anyone tellme exactly what is authentication API ?


In my application COD file when I load it into the Signkey Tool It shows 0/30 Sign key required?


If I need to buy single sign key is enough for my appliction or I need to buy all the 30 keys from BlackBerry Signing Authority ?

Re: SignKey clarification?

A set of signature keys allows you sign an unlimited number of applications. The 30 files you are seeing within your Signature Tool are likely just sibling cod files. For more details on code signing and signature keys, please see the following video:

Re: SignKey clarification?

We develop software for other companies. Do you recommend to get separate keys for each customer? What are teh legal implication if we use our comapnie's code signing certificate for our customer's application and distribute it.


Thanks in advance

It is recommended that each developer who will be signing have their own set of keys.  There is no need to have a unique set for each customer.  The person who signs the application is responsible for it.
