A mechanism is provided for securely associating an application with a well-known entity. A determination is made as to whether an identified application has an associated certificate. Responsive to the identified application having the associated certificate, a determination is made as to whether the associated certificate is issued from a certificate authority associated with the well-known entity trusted by a user of the identified application, where the certificate authority is in a separate domain from an application marketplace where the application was obtained. Responsive to the associated certificate being issued by the certificate authority associated with the well-known entity trusted by the user of the identified application, an indication is provided to the user that the application is trusted in context to interactions with the certificate authority.
