After I run the "nvram boot-args=kext-dev-mode=1" and reboot, my virtualbox install successfully.

How can I sign the kext of my VirtualBox?

To be blunt, you've now asked the same question three times. The information you need is in the links you posted yourself. Your question however is a Mac OSX question, not a VirtualBox question. You need to ask, if you don't understand the links you posted, either in the Apple Support Communities or the Apple Developer forum.

Actually Louis, you're not right on this one. This issue involves signed kexts which are specifically disallowed in 10.10 (you'd only get a warning in the console in 10.9). So @wonsange, you either have to have the kext-dev-mode=1, as you correctly pointed out, or you have to be a developer with signing capabilities ($$). As someone pointed out, Apple's position is:
Apple wrote:KEXT signing is intended for signing commercially shipping kexts or projects broadly distributed in a large organization.

@wonsange, I still don't understand the need to have your own build. But, couldn't you "extract" the signed kexts from the official build (which are signed) and replace your own with the official ones? Just a thought...
If you obfuscate any information requested, I will obfuscate my response. These are virtual UUIDs, not real ones.

I found that out after I posted it but was too lazy to fix it. my bad. :)
