Attest to third-party certifications


sq key attest-certifications [Options]  


Attest to third-party certifications allowing for their distribution.

To prevent certificate flooding attacks, modern key servers prevent uncontrolled distribution of third-party certifications on certificates.  To allow the key holder to control what information is distributed with their certificate, these key servers only distribute third-party certifications that the key holder has explicitly approved.

After the attestation has been created, the certificate has to be distributed, e.g. by uploading it to a key server.
