Signs a script stored in a string.
Object.Sign (FileExtension, Text, Certificate, Store)
- A string designating the script extension type (.vbs, .js, or .wsf). This provides a mechanism by which the operating system can determine the type of script file being verified.
- A string containing the script to be signed.
- A string designating the author's certificate name.
- Optional. A 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".
The Sign method is used to digitally sign a script stored in a string. In order to create a digital signature, the caller must have a valid certificate.
