Gets or sets a value indicating whether the digital signature is checked when a package is loaded.

Namespace:   Microsoft.SqlServer.Dts.Runtime
Assembly:  Microsoft.SqlServer.ManagedDTS (in Microsoft.SqlServer.ManagedDTS.dll)

public bool CheckSignatureOnLoad { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean

true if the digital signature is validated when the package is loaded; otherwise, false. The default value is true.

If CheckSignatureOnLoad is enabled, Integration Services examines the package for a digital signature when the package is loaded. If the signature is valid, the package opens without any messages being sent to the user. If the certificate is not valid or not trusted, a warning message appears and allows the user to interactively decide whether to trust the contents.

For more information, see Identify the Source of Packages with Digital Signatures.


When configured to check the signature of a package, Integration Services only checks whether the digital signature is present, is valid, and is from a trusted source. Integration Services does not check whether the package has been changed.
