gzsig - gzip signing utility
gzsig sign [-qv] [-f secret_file] privkey [file ...] gzsig verify [-qv] pubkey [file ...]
gzsig embeds or verifies RSA PKCS #1 v2.0 or DSA SHA1 signatures in gzip(1) compressed files using SSH identity keys, RSA public keys, or X509 certificates. The file operands are processed in command-line order. If file is a sin- gle dash ('-') or absent, gzsig reads from the standard input. The options are as follows: sign Sign the input using the private key in privkey. verify Verify the signature using the public key in pubkey. -q Enable quiet mode. -v Disable quiet mode. -f secret_file Indicates that the passphrase for the key should be read from secret_file instead of being supplied manually. The gzsig utility exits 0 on success or >0 if an error occured.
Sign file1 and file2 with the SSH2 identity key in ~/.ssh/id_rsa: $ gzsig sign ~/.ssh/id_rsa file1 file2 Sign file1 with the SSH2 identity key, saving the signed file in file2: $ gzsig sign ~/.ssh/id_rsa < file1 > file2 Verify the signature on file1 using the SSL certificate in /etc/ssl/server.crt: $ gzsig verify /etc/ssl/server.crt < file1

gzsig version 1 only supports SHA-1 hashes. The extension field format consists of a magic, "GS", a version identifier (1), and the hash. A pro- posed version 2 would write out both the version 1 field and a version 2 field supporting multiple hashes at the same time, all of which are checked, together with some kind of algorithm ID. This would be used to prevent attacks against a single algorithm or family of hash algorithms. Ideally, you'd combine the version 1 SHA-1 or a version 2 RIPEMD-160 with a version 2 TIGER or WHIRLPOOL and a version 2 CRC (cksum, sum, sysvsum, suma, sfv). July 6, 2001 1
