Netwiz is currently investigating the use of Digital Signatures for both Email and code signing. Code signing allows you to know that the software has not been altered since if was signed, and assuming that you can trust our Root CA certificate that it was signed by Netwiz Pty Ltd. We could for practical purposes ensure that you knew it was signed by Netwiz Pty Ltd by using a CA Root certificate from a known Microsoft Root Certificate Program Member <http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms995347.aspx>, but since digital signing is not in wide use (partly because of the complexity involved), the proliferation of Root Authorities de-valuing the authenticity and because end users are tend to ignore message about digital signing, having a counter signed CA root type of certificate if any has not been justified for the moment.
The original trial a self signed CA Root certificate from Netwiz Pty Ltd certificate has now expired. A new a self signed CA Root certificate from Netwiz Pty Ltd is available which should be installed if the thumb print exactly matches the contents of E133 D24A A000 8997 E3BC 4833 9A94 DBEB E575 9194.
The spacing is not material. It may be displayed as E1 33 D2 4A A0 00 89 97 E3 BC 48 33 9A 94 DB EB E5 75 91 94 or as E133D24A A0008997 E3BC4833 9A94DBEB E5759194, but that is actually the same thumbprint with different spacing.
This certificate will show that the software was signed by this certificate and has not been altered since.
The main MonTel installation executable will be signed and a montel.cat file included in the MonTel Application Folder with a certificate that chains back to the Netwiz CA Root certificate.
Netwiz may also issue other certificates to other organisations known to Netwiz Pty Ltd as either part of an existing and direct business to business or personal relationship.
