Title (EN) IMPROVING THE SECURITY OF OPERATION OF A COMPUTING DEVICE THROUGH THE USE OF VENDOR IDS
(FR) AMELIORATION DE LA SECURITE DE FONCTIONNEMENT D'UN DISPOSITIF INFORMATIQUE PAR UTILISATION D'ID VENDEUR
Abstract:
(EN) An installer for a computing device determines firstly whether or not a software package for installation has been signed. If the package is signed it is installed on the device. However, if the package is unsigned, the installer will only install the package on the device if it contains a non-null VID (vendor identity).
(FR) Un installateur d'un dispositif informatique détermine tout d'abord si oui ou non un progiciel destiné à être installé a été signé. Si le progiciel est signé, il est installé sur le dispositif. Toutefois, si le progiciel n'est pas signé, l'installateur n'installera pas le progiciel sur le dispositif s'il contient une VID (identité vendeur) non nulle.
