Similar to GNU Privacy Guard (GPG), signify is the tool which OpenBSD uses to cryptographically sign its releases, so that you can be sure that you are actually getting a release made by OpenBSD, as opposed to a malicious forgery designed to look the same. Signify's usage is not limited to OpenBSD's releases, however - it can be used to sign anything. So that it will work on Linux, the version of signify provided in this package is not exactly the same as the version provided in OpenBSD's CVS tree. Please note that OpenBSD's public keys are not included with this package; you will have to find your own version in order to verify their releases.
