pesign-client - command line tool for signing UEFI applications


   pesign [--in=infile | -i infile]
          [--out=outfile | -o outfile]
          [--export=exportfile | -e exportfile]
          [--token=token | -t token]
          [--certificate=nickname | -c nickname]
          [--unlock | -u] [--kill | -k] [--sign | -s] [ --is-unlocked | -q
          [--pinfd=pinfd | -f pinfd]
          [--pinfile=pinfile | -F pinfile]


   pesign  is  a  command  line  tool  for  manipulating  signatures   and
   cryptographic digests of UEFI applications.


          Unlock  the  specified  token.   A  PIN  -  specified  by one of
          --pinfd,    --pinfile,    or    the    environmental    variable
          PESIGN_TOKEN_PIN  -  is  required for this operation to succeed.
          The PIN may be empty, if that is what is required for the  token
          specified with --token.

          --is-unlocked  Query  a  token  specified  with --token for lock

          When using --unlock, read the token's PIN  from  the  open  file
          descriptor pinfd.

          When using --unlock, read the token's PIN from the file pinfile.

          Sign the binary specified by infile.

          When used with --sign, write the signature to outfile.

          When used with --sign, specify the input binary.

          When  used  with  --sign, specify output file.  If --detached is
          specified, this will be a DER-formatted  signature.   Otherwise,
          the output will be the signed PE binary.

          When used with --unlock or --sign, use the specified NSS token's
          certificate database.

          When used with --sign, use the certificate database  entry  with
          the specified nickname for signing.

          Terminate the signing server.
