Validating Insmart Software

How to Check the Digital Certificate

At the time Insmart software is created the software is digitally signed.

If the file has been altered or corrupted the digital signature tab will be missing or the digital signature will no longer be valid.


The following picture guide shows how the digital signature can be checked to verify the integrity of Insmart software.

Use Windows Explorer to right click and select "Properties" for the file.

Select the Digital Signatures tab
(no tab means the file is not signed. Request a signed file.)
Highlight the signature labelled "Insmart Software" (or "Rodney Grasso").
Select the Details tab to show one of the following displays:

Make sure This digital signature is OK is visible
and the name and e-mail match this display.
A corrupt or altered file will display
This digital signature is not valid.


Certificate Thumbprint
Use the certificate thumbprint to confirm the certificate that signed the application was in fact issued by Insmart.

To do this click View Certificate, select the Details tab and scroll the list to bring the Thumbprint row into view.
Highlight the Thumbprint row and check that the 20 number thumbprint shown in the lower window matches the appropriate thumbprint listed in the table below.

View the thumbprint of the certificate used to sign the application.
(The thumbprint above matches with a row in the table below and was valid 2019-2022)
