Express Signed (Symbian Signed)
If your application needs Restricted Capabilities, you cannot use this signing option and must use Certified Signed instead.
Express Signed applications can be deployed freely once signed, and the applications are valid for ten years from the date of signing.
What you will need
- A Symbian Signed account
- At least 1 Content ID in your Symbian Signed account
- A Publisher ID issued by TrustCenter
- The right tools to sign your SIS file and create a zip file
Step 1: Symbian Signed Test Criteria
Before you start the actual submission process, check that your submission meets all of the tests in the Symbian Signed Test Criteria. If you feel that your application might fail any of the tests, then contact Nokia at symbian.signed @ nokia.com for advice before submission if you’re unsure what to do. Contact us also if your application would need a waiver to pass the test. Please note that if your submission does not contain a waiver for the failed test case then the final test result will be a rejected application.
Step 2: Sign your .sis file with your Publisher ID
Step 3: Create your .zip file
Create a .zip file containing the signed .sis file from Step 2 and a readme.txt giving details of your submission and how it can be tested by our test teams.
Step 4: Upload your .zip file
Log into your Symbian Signed account, and use the “Express Signed” menu option to get to the submission form. Complete the form, and upload your .zip file for signing.
Step 5: Download your signed application
From the “My Submissions” link in your Symbian Signed account, you will be able to download the signed version of your application.
Step 6: Audit compliance
Nokia will test your application against the Symbian Signed Test Criteria. If your application fails the tests then your Express Signed privileges will be suspended until you have done 2 successful submissions through the Certified Signed channel (where every submitted application is thoroughly tested by an external test house).
