Signer Tool
Signer registry is a centralized place where you can store your development keys.
Each signer in registry has an unique user defined name. All everdev commands that require signing or encryption refer to the signer by name.
You can mark one of the signers as a default. It can be used in signing commands without providing signer option.
Signer repository management in everdev is accessible through the signer tool.
Note: If you need to generate an unsigned message, you may use the option --signer none in any relevant commands in other controllers. Omitting the signer option altogether always means using the default signer.
Note: Keys in the repository are stored unencrypted.
