sq-sign - Man Page

Name

sq-sign — Signs messages or data files

Creates signed messages or detached signatures.  Detached signatures are often used to sign software packages.

The converse operation is "sq verify".

Synopsis

sq sign [Flags] [Options] [--] [FILE]

Flags

-h,  --help

-B,  --binary

Emits binary data

--detached

--cleartext-signature

-a,  --append

Appends a signature to existing signature

-n,  --notarize

--signer-key KEY

-t,  --time TIME

--notation NAME

Adds a notation to the certification.  A user-defined notation's name must be of the form "name@a.domain.you.control.org". If the notation's name starts with a !, then the notation is marked as being critical.  If a consumer of a signature doesn't understand a critical notation, then it will ignore the signature.  The notation is marked as being human readable.

Args

FILE

Reads from FILE or stdin if omitted

$ sq sign --signer-key juliet.pgp message.txt

# Create a detached signature

$ sq sign --detached --signer-key juliet.pgp message.txt
