It allows for the distribution of files and in a lot…of cases pre and post install scripts that alter the way,…either the operating system is configured…or permissions on file or folders in a directory tree.…To accommodate the installation of those files…and the correct permission structures,…after things are installed.…So it's very important that these things be signed…by a trusted certificate otherwise,…GateKeeper will keep them from running.…
