I've grown up with computers around me my whole life. I started programming when I was a kid, and stuck with it ever since. I came across Linux around 1999 and have enjoyed working with it ever since.

For a job, I get to write software that runs on embedded Linux devices. I do everything from working on low-level drivers to writing shell scripts and even web apps.

@owlstead Right - the dgst function has a -sign option to "digitally sign the digest" with a private key. I believe that does protect it against alteration.

comment Okay to use OpenSSL to encrypt then sign a message?
I'm going to follow those steps, but I think none of the issues matter in my case. I don't care who knows that the sender signed the message (unless that causes additional problems I don't know about), and the recipient does not trust the message unless it is from the trusted sender.
