Send the CSR, contact information, and other required documentation to the JCA Code Signing Certification Authority. Send, via email, the CSR and contact information (see below) to email@example.com. Put the following in the Subject line of your email message:
Request a Certificate for Signing a JCA Provider
This exact subject line must be used, or the spam filters will not let the message through. Put the contact information in the body of the message and send the CSR file as a plain text attachment to the message. If your mail tool has an option for specifying the encoding format to be used for attachments, select the "MIME" option.
Note: The CSR file is just a plain text file, in Base 64 encoding. Only the first and last lines are human-readable.
Include the following contact information in the body of your message:
All of the above information is required.
Please allow ten business days for processing.
After the JCA Code Signing Certification Authority has received your email message, they will send you a request number via email. Please allow ten business days for processing.
Once you receive this request number, you should print, fill out and scan/email or fax the Certification Form for CSPs to the address in the form. Be sure to include the request number on the form so that your hardcopy mailing can be matched to the email message containing your CSR and contact information.
After the JCA Code Signing Certification Authority has received both your email message and the required form, they will authenticate you, the requester. Then they will create and sign a code-signing certificate valid for 5 years. You will receive an email message containing two plain-text file attachments: one file containing this code-signing certificate and another file containing its own CA certificate, which authenticates its public key. Please also allow ten business days from receipt of your request for processing.
