You must be subscribe as an Apple Mac Developer. Membership is $99/yr.
As long as you are a member you get a Developer ID certificate for
Gatekeeper and/or App Store distribution (which has also other
requirements and restrictions). For non-App Store distribution Apple
does not review your software or do any vetting before handing out a
Developer ID. If however they find you distribute malware they can
revoke your certificate from Gatekeeper to block your software.
