Windows Requires a Digitally Signed Driver In Windows 10/8/7 FIX [Tutorial]

Device Drivers are necessary for communication between hardware and software of an operating system. Some drivers are digitally signed. Digitally signed drivers are drivers which signed by their issuing authority in such a manner that the end user or any third-party cannot modify them. At times, users are unable to install or update drivers and get the error – Windows requires a digitally signed driver.

Driver Signing is the process of associating a digital signature with a driver package. Windows device installations use digital signatures to verify the integrity of the driver packages and to verify the identity of the vendor who provides the driver packages.

The drivers you normally install on your computer from Windows Update, Original Equipment Manufacturers or some 3th-party driver download software, etc. must be digitally verified by Microsoft via a digital signature. It is an electronic security mark that certifies the publisher for the driver, as well as all the relevant information related to it. If a driver isn’t certified by Microsoft, Window won’t run them on either 32-bit or 64-bit system. This is referred to as “driver signature enforcement”.

Windows 10 will load only Kernel mode drivers signed digitally by the Dev Portal. However, the changes will affect only the new installations of the operating system with Secure Boot on. The non-upgraded fresh installations would require drivers signed by Microsoft.
