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.
