Installing private key agents

The private key agent is distributed as a Windows Installer package, Linux self-extracting installer, and Linux native packages.

Installation package Description

Windows Installer

The Windows Installer package is a self-contained executable that has no external dependencies.

The installer performs an integrity check before extracting.

Linux self-extracting installer

The Linux self-extracting installer is a self-contained executable that has no external dependencies.

The installer performs an integrity check before extracting.

Linux native packages (DEB/RPM)

The Linux native packages use Linux package managers such as APT/YUM to pull the packages from Sectigo during installation.

The DEB metadata and RPM package are digitally signed by Sectigo using GPG.
