Signing Data

This snippet demonstrates how to use the private key to sign some text.



  1. Add a new Swift file to your project, and copy the following code snippet:
// Create the private and public keys.
    success, _  in

    print("Private and public keys created successfully: \(success).")

// Sign the data.
guard let value = KeychainHelper.sign("sample", value: "hello world") else
    print("Unable to sign data with private key.")

print("Signed data: \(value)")

// Delete the private key.
    result in
    print("Private key deleted successful: \(result).")

Next Steps

You have now successfully used the private key to sign some text in your iOS application, by using the IBMVerifyKit framework.
