Did you know that you can use the ssh-keygen command to sign and verify signatures on arbitrary data, like files and software releases? Although this feature isn’t super new – it was added in 2019 with OpenSSH 8.0 – it seems to be little-known. That’s a shame because it’s super useful and the most viable alternative to PGP for signing data. If you’re currently using PGP to sign data, you should consider switching to SSH signatures.
