Another way to detect whether binaries are digitally signed (using C#)

Recently in a blog post, we discussed, how to detect whether an assembly is digitally signed using the C# programming language and System.Management.Automation.dll from Microsoft. That was one way to get the status of the digital signing.

 

Today we will learn another method to detect the same without using any additional dll references in our project. I hope that, it will much more interesting to learn.



Here’s how to detect whether an assembly is digitally signed (using C#)

Digital signatures are the public-key primitives of message authentication. In common words, hand written signatures are defined to put authenticity of a file. In digital word, it’s the digital signature binds a person/entity to the digital data.

 

In this blog post, we will learn how to detect whether an assembly (.dll or .exe) is digitally signed. We will use .NET/C# to identify the same. Continue reading to know more on this topic.
