Scripting.Signer

FileName

A string containing the name of the script file.

Certificate

A string designating the author's certificate name.

Store

An optional string designating the name of the certificate store. Typically certificates that contain private keys — i.e., certificates you can use for code signing — are in a certificate store called "my". The default value is "my".

In order to sign a digital signature, the author must have a valid certificate.

Description

The following example demonstrates not only signature checking but also the command-line argument.

<job>
<runtime>
<named name="file" helpstring="the file to sign" required="true" type="string"/>
<named name="cert" helpstring="the name of the signing certificate" required="true" type="string"/>
<named name="store" helpstring="the name of the certificate store" required="false" type="string"/>
</runtime>
<script language="vbscript">
Dim Signer, File, Cert, Store
If Not (WScript.Arguments.Named.Exists("cert") And WScript.Arguments.Named.Exists("file")) Then
     WScript.Arguments.ShowUsage
     WScript.Quit
End If
Set Signer = CreateObject("Scripting.Signer")
File  = WScript.Arguments.Named("file")
Cert  = WScript.Arguments.Named("cert")
If WScript.Arguments.Named.Exists("store") Then
     Store = WScript.Arguments.Named("store")
Else
     Store = "my"
End If
Signer.SignFile File, Cert, Store
</script>
</job>
