Add Custom trusted signer

L1 Bithead



we are in the process of rolling out Traps. Since our company develops its own software we would like to add our software certificates to the trusted signers so we can avoid false positives. Is this possible?

Hello Bernhard,


At this moment you cannot control Trusted Publishers other than applying Content Updates. You can find the entries in the database tables dbo.Publishers. Maybe you can control it by adding your certificates to the PublisherName field? I know you can use it the other way around by removed entries. 


Please note that I have not tested this method and probably is not recommended by Palo Alto Networks. So use/test at your own risk 🙂 And also inform me if it works or not!



i have the same problem. I would like to add my certificates in order to not sent these files to widlfire. How can we add my certs to traps??

Contact support. There is a method for adding your own certs to trust. It's nothing you can do through the GUI.

Ok, but if we add our certs, and we dont have enable local analysis. The files (with our cert) will be send to wildfire???
