Gem::Security::Signer

Basic OpenSSL-based package signing class.

cert_chain[RW]

The chain of certificates for signing including the signing certificate

digest_algorithm[R]

The digest algorithm used to create the signature

key[RW]

The private key for the signing certificate

new(key, cert_chain) click to toggle source

Creates a new signer with an RSA key or path to a key, and a certificate chain containing X509 certificates, encoding certificates or paths to certificates.
