       elfverify - program to do something


       elfverify [options] files...


       This  manual page documents briefly the elfverify command.  This manual
       page was written for  the  Debian  distribution  because  the  original
       program does not have a manual page.

       elfverify  is  used  to  verify the signature added to an ELF binary by
       elfsign. It calculates the MD5 checksum of the  binary,  skipping  over
       the signature section. The signature is then extracted, and verified as
       being  issued  by  a  trusted  authority.  Finally,  the  signature  is
       decrypted and compared against the MD5 checksum derived.


       A summary of options is included below.

       -h     Show summary of options.

       -f elf image
              The name of the ELF binary image you wish to sign

       -c ca cert file
              The CA certificate that was used to sign the binary

       -p ca cert path
              Something intelligent needs to go here
