Channel 9 article
Attestation Signing Submissions
Attestation signing will be transitioning to the new
Windows Hardware Dev Center
in mid-January. Once transitioned, new attestation signing will be required to use the new Windows Hardware Dev Center, and existing attestation submissions will be migrated from the Hardware Dev Center (SysDev) over time.
New attestation submissions will be blocked on Hardware Dev Center (SysDev) once the transition has occurred
Existing attestation submissions will be migrated over time, beginning in February
Existing submissions will remain fully functional in the Hardware Dev Center (SysDev) until they are migrated
The packaging format of attested submissions will remain the same as they were in the Hardware Dev Center (SysDev)
Certification Verification Reports
In mid-January, certification verification reports will be made available in the new Windows Hardware Dev Center. Once available, users will be able to download the reports from for any new or migrated submission.
