After building a module for Ignition it must be signed before it can be installed on a system that is not in developer mode.
Modules can be signed using either a real code signing certificate obtained from a Certificate Authority or using a self-generated and self-signed certificate. What kind of certificate you use to sign your module depends on the level of assurance you want to offer your end users. If you're building a module for internal use within your company, using a self-signed certificate may not be an issue. If you're selling a module to other users of Ignition you should use a certificate obtained from a CA.
What you'll need:
- code signing certificate.
- the full certificate chain, in the correct order, in p7b (PKCS7) format.
- the IA module signing tool or a tool that is capable of doing the equivalent.
