Signing

GoReleaser can sign some or all of the generated artifacts. Signing ensures that the artifacts have been generated by yourself and your users can verify that by comparing the generated signature with your public signing key.

Signing works in combination with checksum files and it is generally sufficient to sign the checksum files only.

The default is configured to create a detached signature for the checksum files with GnuPG and your default key. To enable signing just add

# goreleaser.yml
signs:
  - artifacts: checksum

To customize the signing pipeline you can use the following options:

# .goreleaser.yml
signs:
  -
    # name of the signature file.
    # '${artifact}' is the path to the artifact that should be signed.
    #
    # defaults to `${artifact}.sig`
    signature: "${artifact}_sig"

    # path to the signature command
    #
    # defaults to `gpg`
    cmd: gpg2

    # command line arguments for the command
    #
    # to sign with a specific key use
    # args: ["-u", "<key id, fingerprint, email, ...>", "--output", "${signature}", "--detach-sign", "${artifact}"]
    #
    # defaults to `["--output", "${signature}", "--detach-sign", "${artifact}"]`
    args: ["--output", "${signature}", "${artifact}"]


    # which artifacts to sign
    #
    #   checksum: only checksum file(s)
    #   all:      all artifacts
    #   none:     no signing
    #
    # defaults to `none`
    artifacts: all

    # IDs of the artifacts to sign.
    # Defaults to all.
    # If `artifacts` is checksum, this fields has no effect.
    ids:
      - foo
      - bar
