LSA plug-in signing

Last Updated: 1/18/2017

LSA file signing is a service provided by Windows Dev Center hardware dashboard. This service allows you to digitally sign LSA plug-ins so that they can be installed on Windows computers.

LSA submissions require an extended validation (EV) code signing certificate. For more information about code signing certificates, see Get a code signing certificate.

Submit an LSA plug in

  1. Sign in to the Hardware Dev Center dashboard with your Microsoft account, and then click File signing services.

  2. On the File signing services page, in the Create submissions tile, click Create LSA submission.

    Note
    Before proceeding, you may be prompted to sign a legal agreement. To continue, review the document, add your signature, add the date, and then click Submit. Each organization only needs to sign this agreement once.

  3. On the Create LSA submission page, browse to the CAB file that you want to submit, click Upload, and then click Submit.

  4. When the Hardware Dev Center dashboard completes processing your submission, you’ll receive an email with the results.

Important

  • All LSA submissions must be in a single, signed CAB file and contain all the LSA plug-in files for signing.

  • The CAB file signature must match the EV code signing certificate on file for your company with Hardware Dev Center dashboard. For more information about code signing certificates, see Get a code signing certificate.

  • Submission packages should be a CAB library that contains no folders and only the binary files to be signed.

Manage LSA submissions

  1. Sign in to Hardware Dev Center dashboard with your Microsoft account, and then click Manage submissions in the Hardware certification tile.

  2. On the Manage submissions page, select LSA from the Submission type list, and then click Apply.

  3. Click the submission ID that you want to manage.

  4. On the submission details page, you can see the status of your submission, and, if it's complete, click the Download link to download the signed binaries.
