Codesign Powershell script

I work with some Powershell, and sometimes I even have to run Windows systems. Loading a function library was more complicated than it should have been, because I hadn't gotten my powershell script signed with a certificate. So here's how to do it with a valid cert.

$cert = (Get-ChildItem Cert:\localmachine\My -CodeSigningCert)[0]
Set-AuthenticodeSignature -File C:\Path\To\File.ps1 -Cert $cert -IncludeChain "All" -TimestampServer
