This paper describe the design and implementation of signed executable module in Linux Platform where it allows only to load and run trusted application/code and deny the execution of untrusted execution of application/code. The signature shall be provided using the Asymmetric Key Cryptographic Infrastructure. A careful study will be taken up to design an efficient signing framework which can manipulate the existing object file formats recognized by the native operating system platform, to introduce the digital signatures, as part of the object files themselves. It ensures that a piece of code is not altered once it has signed and also identifies the code emerging from a specific developer or signer. It is based on the idea that the author signs the application/code using private key and the end user uses public key to verify the signature.
