Tox cryptographic signature

I feel like it could be quite beneficial to be able to sign tox (using my private key) and later check its signature prior to actual loading (using public key).

This way it would be possible to guarantee tox haven’t been tampered with (checking it before adding into touchdesigner - as it can do some harm right away when you add it). Thanks.

If you are in control of ‘building’ the toxes, then simple hash-checking would put you most of the way there. Another idea is to use the native privacy options (pro license required) to ‘sign’ a locked container inside with some sort of digest or signature of what the network looks like.

Thanks, I have originally thought about some concept similar to PGP signatures, but hash checking sounds much easier and better actually. Don’t know why I haven’t thought of that as the first option… :slight_smile: Thank you very much.
