SYNOPSIS

yafic-sign [-Vhp] [-c] keyfile file

yafic-check [-Vhp] keyfile file

DESCRIPTION

yafic-sign cryptographically signs file using the key keyfile. yafic-check (which is simply another name for yafic-sign -c) verifies a file against its signature.

keyfile is expected to be an RSA or DSA key. See openssl(1), genrsa(1), gendsa(1), and specifically:

http://www.openssl.org/docs/HOWTO/keys.txt

Signature files have the same name as file, but with the extension .sig.

OPTIONS

The options are as follows:
-V Display version information.
-h Display help summary.
-p Expect keyfile to be a public key rather than a private key.
-c Instead of signing file, file is checked against its signature.

RETURN VALUES

Both yafic-sign and yafic-check exit with one of the following values:
0 file was successfully signed or verified
1 An error occurred.
2 There was a problem with the arguments given to yafic-sign or yafic-check.
