macOS plugin installer signing certificate


#1

I am making a macOS installer for a VST/AU audio plugin, and want to sign the installer so that it isn’t blocked by Gatekeeper.

From what I can gather, a paid enrolment in the Apple Developer Program is required to generate signing certificates.

Before I drop A$149, can someone confirm that this is the case?

I had found a page here about signing installer packages. From the steps, you must use Developer ID Installer certificates which are only issued to Apple Developer Program members

That’s what I thought. Thanks for confirming :slight_smile:
