Volunteer contributions are happily considered! If you were to contribute codecrypt signature creation to the Kicksecure dm-prepare-release scriptarchive.org, then this feature could be provided much sooner.

If you would like to use codecrypt for software signature verification, please consider making a report in the codecrypt forum threadarchive.org. This method might be supported sooner if there is sufficient interest.
