Does codesigning or Dev ID ever avoid the quarantine dialog?

  • I thought that code signing OS X apps (even before Dev ID and GateKeeper) allowed you to avoid the "do you really want to launch this quarantined app" dialog, at least after the first launch (i.e., when you ship an update).

    I had a conversation with an Apple person about this a long time ago, but I don't remember what he ended up telling me.

    Is this not the case?

    TIA,

  • No.
    Only 2 ways:
    delivered through the app store.
    installer using authorization.

    Otherwise, simply codesigning with a known dev ID only allows you past one level of Gatekeeper..
    Any executable download will always get the quarantine flag set.

    Notice the common thread, some form of authorization from an Admin account occurs at some point in each of the 3 broader scenarios. This is required to clear the quarantine flag if set. App store apps can be considered vetted already.
