This piece of information from the above link was interesting to me:

“At this stage, it may be important to stress out that the trust validation for signed driver binaries (.sys, .dll) and the trust validation for signed driver packages (.cat) are a completely separate process, in that you don’t have to use a kernel mode Authenticode certificate to sign driver packages. A self-signed or any kind of commercial certificate will work equally well, as long as it is installed in the relevant certificate stores.”
