Signify - Ed25519 signature tool
Create cryptographic signatures for files and verify them. This is based on signify, the OpenBSD tool to sign and verify signatures on files. It is based on the Ed25519 public-key signature system by Bernstein et al.
signify-rs verifies signatures generated by BSD signify and signs data in a format that BSD signify can verify.

signify in Securing OpenBSD From Us To You.
cargo install signify
Create a key pair:
signify -G -p pubkey -s seckey
Sign a file using the secret key:
signify -S -s seckey -m README.md
Verify the signature:
signify -V -p pubkey -m README.md
Currently, there are no unit tests.
But we ensure that a full cycle of generating a keypair, then signing & verifying works. To do so:
For correctness, we compare interoperability with the OpenBSD
No embedded signatures No password-protection for secret keys
Both things will be implemented eventually. I also accept PRs.
