DotFix NiceProtect Supports IEEE Taggant


Starting from version 5.0, NiceProtect includes IEEE Software Taggant System, a cutting-edge technology that protects your files from antiviruses' false positives. This technology is based on signing each protected file by a Taggant SHA certificate with timestamping on the IEEE certification server. The certificate looks like this: the IEEE root certificate, DotFix Software's certificate issued by IEEE, and the protection user's certificate issued by DotFix Software.




This certificate is very similar to Code Signing Certificate, the only difference is the area of application. Such certificates are already supported by many antiviral products and by VirusTotal.com online service, which significantly reduces the chance of a false positive. We were among the ten or so companies that helped to develop and implement the Taggant System, and we have a lot of experience in using it.
