We need a code signing certificate, make sure it's on one of these : <http://www.raaktechnologies.com/store/smart_cards.html>, and verify we can use the existing signing automation.
Looks like there is a place beside verisign/thwate where one can buy authenticode certificates: <http://www.tech-pro.net/code-signing-certificate.html>
Progress update. I now have a Windows Signing VM that is able to successfully Authenticode Sign against signing certificates stored in the smartcard. Need to get the signing automation working now.
david, it's time to go ahead and purchase an actual code signing certificate. Comodo: 180/year Thwate: 299/year Verisign: $499/year I've heard various negative comments about comodo, and verisign is somewhat of big beast (and expensive), so I'd rather suggest we try Thwate for 1 year and see how that goes. Changing/replacing the certificate is simple, so not a big commitment.

Code signing certificate ordered, David, expect somebody from Thawte to contact you to verify company info.
Whiteboard: [no l10n impact] → [no l10n impact][waiting for real cert]
Cert recieved! Tested signing automation with it, and all looks good.
