In November 2016, the phased transition from SysDev (sysdev.microsoft.com) to the new Windows Hardware Dev Center began. The initial phase included the transition of HCK/HLK device submissions and has now been completed. The next phase of the transition will include Attestation signing and is detailed below. For further details on the overall transition to the new Windows Hardware Dev Center, please refer to the following 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.
