        Hi all,

        We requested for a developer ID certificate for distribution on 15th January and finally gotten a "3rd Party Mac Developer Application: Ixia (6H42WAM355)" certificate on March.

        I managed to create the Developer ID certificate using team account and successfully signed my pcie kext in xcode when it compiles. However, i found that the signed kext doesn't load when I install it into /Library/Extensions/ or /System/Library/Extensions/. When i tried to use kextutil to load it, I found that it is reporting this error -67050 like below.

        Macbooks-MBP:Release lvltuser$ sudo kextutil -v KeysightKauaiPCI.kext


        Defaulting to kernel file '/System/Library/Kernels/kernel'

        Untrusted kexts are not allowed

        Kext with invalid signature (-67050) denied: /Library/StagedExtensions/System/Library/Extensions/0AE681EE-2C83-43F1-BDF0-F02093A7980C.kext

        Bundle (/System/Library/Extensions/KeysightKauaiPCI.kext) failed to validate, deleting: /Library/StagedExtensions/System/Library/Extensions/0AE681EE-2C83-43F1-BDF0-F02093A7980C.kext

        Unable to stage kext (/System/Library/Extensions/KeysightKauaiPCI.kext) to secure location.



        I found that the Developer ID certificate ID is 1.2.840.113635. What I read from the following 2 links is that the Developer ID Application certificate must be 1.2.840.113635.



        My question is:

        1) Is it true that I am having the wrong certificate from Apple?

        2) What can I do to move forward?


        I have submitted many support cases to "Äpple Developer Program Support" and finally they told me that they are not able to help me. They say I need to submit Developer ID certificate again to get to kext team or ask in developer forum. Please let me know how to move forward. Desperately needing help. I am already late to submit my kext for Thunderbolt certification.

          What I read from the following 2 links is that the Developer ID Application certificate must be 1.2.840.113635.

          That’s correct.  A while back I discovered where these wacky OIDs are officially documented, and I just added that info to my KEXT Code Signing Problems post.

          If your Developer ID certificate is missing this OID then there’s three possibilities:

          • You’re using a certificate that predates the OID being added to your team.

          • You’re using the wrong team.

          • There’s been some sort of mixup at our end.

          I recommend that you re-create your Developer ID certificate to rule out the first possibility.  If that doesn’t get the OID to show up, drop me a line via email (my address is in my signature) and we can discuss this privately (I can’t conduct official DTS business here on DevForums).
