The PrimeKey SignServer team is pleased to announce the release of SignServer 5.6.0.
With this release, we are introducing support for request prioritization, allowing incoming signing requests to be assigned different priority levels based on configuration. This release also brings support for Authenticode resigning, enabling signing of Microsoft Authenticode signed PE and MSI files with an additional signature.
By setting up priority levels for different signing request types, you can now ensure that the available SignServer system capacity is assigned to incoming signing requests based on your defined priority levels.
The new SignServer Request Prioritization feature ensures that response times for high-priority requests can be optimized while lower priority requests may get queued. Priority levels are configured as part of the worker configuration. For more information, see Setting up Request Prioritization.
SignServer 5.6.0 introduces support for signing Microsoft Authenticode signed PE and MSI files with an additional signature. By signing application files with multiple signatures, the files can be made compatible with the signing schemes of both legacy and modern Microsoft platforms.
For information on configuring and signing using the SignServer MS Authenticode signer, see Authenticode Code Signing.
