At the moment, I can not find such a tool.

This kind of tool could be quite handy since malware analysts/researchers look into digitally signed files for whitelisting/blacklisting purposes.
Possible (important) features (to be considered):
- display digitally signed files from a specific folder as a list;
- ability to view the specific folder using a right-click menu (or something similar) on the digitally signed file;
- ability to filter files using digital signature details such as "Issued by", "Issued to", "Valid from" - "to", etc;


Kind Regards,
Marius

That's really not a bad idea at all -- especially if it showed a grid with the signing details.

Maybe skwire can add another column to SFV Ninja ?

Turn it into CFV Ninja, (Complicated File Verification).

I didn't expect such positive replies.


Please note,that it's (very) important to know which files have a valid digital signature in terms of #date. In other words, to less or equal to current date. That could be a method.
Now, extending the idea of complex verification, It could also use an 'offline database', perhaps a text file (list) that contains default/custom trusted vendors. The vendors that are listed in the respective text file will show in a color, let's say green while the others that are not in the list will be marked red. Of course, colors could be customizable/user-choice -- whatever seems appropriate to DonationCoder.

Thanks again for the great feedback.

Kind regards,
Marius

is this the same as sigverif?

Quote from: support.microsoft.com/kb/308514
Verify Unsigned Device Drivers

    Click Start, click Run, type sigverif, and then click OK.
    Click Advanced.
    Click Look for other files that are not digitally signed.

    In the Look in this folder box, type x:\Windows\system32\drivers, where x is the letter of the drive where Windows is installed.
    On the Logging tab, make sure the Save the file signature verification results to a log file check box is selected, and then click OK.
    Click Start.

    NOTE: The log file is named Sigverif.txt, and it is saved in the Windows folder. Third-party drivers that are unsigned are displayed as "Not signed." Use the drivers in this list as your troubleshooting starting point.

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/308514

The article was about XP, but I can confirm that I have sigverif on Win 7 as well.

I tried it, but it only shows an overview of driver files that are not signed. The application sigverif is too limited to be of almost any use, if you would have asked me (and I know you didn't).

In the meantime, I've found a (temporary) solution-- Sigcheck.
More information
Sigcheck is a command-line utility that shows file version number, timestamp information, and digital signature details, including certificate chains.


Interesting tool that does the job and it could be used in the "process". I'm guessing a GUI could be made based on this tool.
Hope it helps.


Kind Regards,
Marius Il.

Thanks for posting about that.. it does seem like it would be a natural next step for someone to make a gui tool that uses this commandline utility.

Yep, quite easily.  I assume you would like all bits of information listed in columns?  Example output from the CLI tool:

Verified:       Signed
Signing date:   4:45 PM 4/28/2014
Publisher:      Microsoft Corporation
Description:    File version and signature viewer
Product:        Sysinternals Sigcheck
Prod version:   2.1
File version:   2.1
MachineType:    32-bit


Here's an extended output from the CLI tool:

Verified:       Signed
Signing date:   4:45 PM 4/28/2014
Publisher:      Microsoft Corporation
Description:    File version and signature viewer
Product:        Sysinternals Sigcheck
Prod version:   2.1
File version:   2.1
MachineType:    32-bit
Binary Version: 2.10.0.0
Original Name:  sigcheck.exe
Internal Name:  Sigcheck

For sure.  I foresee something very similar to my PDFInfoGUI tool.

Yes. It's a good start (for the first version) but this (suggested) application should not be limited (only) to the output though.  :up:

However, maybe columns should be opt-in. End-users should select which columns to be displayed.

Hmmm...not sure what else you'd want out of this tool.

However, maybe columns should be opt-in. End-users should select which columns to be displayed.

Column order and widths are saved so, if you don't want to see a column, you would simply set it to zero-width.  Here's a teaser screenshot so far:

Awesome.

Well, imagine tons & tons of files- you have to sort/filter these by columns, copy/move files to other folders,  filter/hide files from signers that are loaded from a list, copy and paste displayed information such as hashes of files. These are most used operations.

Kind Regards,
Marius

Written up by Martin at ghacks today!

He seems to really like it, though he pointed out a few issues with the virustotal integration.

Yeah, disabled that in a new build until I work out those kinks.  I know WHAT the issue is...just need to come up with a way to handle it elegantly.
