    Hi All,
    I want to start signing my scripts to make it easier to run them in the multiple environments I work in daily. The process itself doesn't seem like that much extra work so it can only be a net-benefit. However, I don't want to spend a heap of $$$ to get the certificate if I can avoid it. Does anyone know of an affordable cert from a trusted CA?

    Thanks
    Liam

    Those certificates are expensive because they're typically only issued to organizations, not individuals, and they have a fairly detailed identit verification process behind them.

    Does your environment not have a CA?

    Thanks Don,
    I should have mentioned it was for a business, but it is only a small company, my boss and myself, so it might not be worth the investment at this stage.
    Most of the scripts I write end up being run at client sites. The company I work for specifically looks after IT for medical practices and so we end up reusing a lot of the scripts. I had considered self-signing and trusting it at each site. I thought using a trusted CA would be a less messy option. I take your point though.
    Thanks again
