A Rust implementation of Minisign compiled to WebAssembly.

All signatures produced by rsign can be verified with minisign including trusted comments.

And minisign is able to sign files with keys generated by rsign2.

In Rust, signatures can also be verified with the minisign-verify crate.

rsign2 is a maintained fork of rsign, originally written by Daniel Rangel.

Main differences with rsign:

  • rsign2 is written in pure Rust.
  • rsign2 has way less dependencies.
  • rsign2 includes bug fixes and improvements.
  • rsign2 tries to be usable as a library, not just as a command-line tool.
  • rsign2 supports WebAssembly.

API documentation

rsign2 is only a command-line interface. It relies on the Minisign crate, that can be embedded in any application:

API documentation on docs.rs


rsign generate

Generates a new key pair. The public key is printed in the screen and stored in rsign.pub by default. The secret key will be written at ~/.rsign/rsign.key. You can change the default paths with -p and -s respectively.

rsign sign myfile.txt

Sign myfile.txt with your secret key. You can add a signed trusted comment with:

rsign sign myfile.txt -t "my trusted comment"

If you are signing files larger than 1Gb you must use -H to first hash the file and sign the hash after that:

rsign sign mylargefile.bin -H

And to verify the signature with a given public key you can use:

rsign verify myfile.txt -p rsign.pub

Or if you have saved the signature file with a custom name other than myfile.txt.minisig and want to use a public key string you can use:

rsign verify myfile.txt -P [PUBLIC KEY STRING] -x mysignature.file
