get file signature data?

Recommended Posts

Anepopane

Hi there!

I am searching for a way to read a files (exe and dll) signature data ... I need the timestamp and the information if the signature is OK or not.

I didn't find any way yet to do this directly with autoit, also I didn't find any small commandline tool or sth like this in the web.

Please let me know if there is any way to do it and use it in an autoit script.

Thx,

Anepopane

Welcome to the AutoIt forum!

What do you call a "signature"? Are you referring to the version, author, and other various informations found in the .exe or .dll file structure, that Explorer will show in a Tip when you over one of them?

There are standard functions for getting a file's various "timestamps": look up FileGetTime in the help file.

Hi,

thanks for your answer.

What I mean is the data about the digital signature of a file. I am interested in the timestamp of that and the status (ok or not) which I can't get with FileGetTime. For details please see the attached screesnhot of a file signature dialog - sorry for the first unspecific description.

Thanks a lot,

Anepopane

Various timestamps: see previous post and FiletGetTime()

Digital signatures: automate sigverif to check for specified file(s) if you need on-demand verification, or browse the journal file to check for success/failures.

sigverif is not really an option for me - I didn't find any command line parameters to run it like this:

sigverif c:\temp\file.exe > output.txt

And automation of this GUI tool would be very slow and complicated.

What I need is sth like FileGetTime() but with the possibility to obtain the signature status and timestamp.

This is not possible with Autoit as far as I know, so any commandline tool I could run from a script would be OK, but I didn't find any.

Maybe someone here knows such a tool or could provide it?
