You can specify an optional element to support a digital signature to sign the manifest when you submit the app to the Office Store. The element is part of the namespace http://www.w3.org/2000/09/xmldsig#, and the schema for the element follows the processing rules and syntax as specified by XML Signature Syntax and Processing (Second Edition).

The following is an example of a signature.

  <Signature xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/09/xmldsig#">
    <SignedInfo>
      <CanonicalizationMethod Algorithm="http://www.w3.org/TR/2001/REC-xml-c14n-20010315" />

      <Reference URI="">
