HPR - Ep0443: How to Sign C Files with GPG

4 posts in this topic

In this show SigFLUP shares a script that can be used to sign your c files with gpg so that they may be directly verifiable by gpg and look un-changed to your c compiler. You can download it at tmd.freeshell.org/gpg_bless

That's interesting, but the normal mode of operation is to distribute a tarball of the source code (which usually involves more than the .c file, including a README, INSTALL, LICENSE, Makefile, etc) and include a .asc signature or simply a hash. One thing I can think of that's distributed as simple .c files is exploits, but then are you sure you want everyone to know where it comes from? Anyway, that's neat and I'll listen to this later tonight.

Good luck listening the link seems to be broken and there's a typo for the url. should be gpg_bless not gog_bless. I emailed hpr admin about this. Also, I find being able to sign individual files in a project useful. Mind you most of my projects contain all my files but they need not to. Kinda clues you in to what people change to if you go without any version control too
