signify(1) was released in 2014 as a simple means of signing and verifying files on OpenBSD.

The current and standard practice for verifying the integrity of digial signatures on software is to use GnuPG. The procedure is tedious, and likely ignored by most TB users.

signify is small and sticks to the Unix approach of doing one function.
