attest-certifications - Attests to third-party certifications

attest-certifications [--none] [--all] [-o|--output] [-B|--binary] [-h|--help] [KEY]

Attests to third-party certifications allowing for their distribution

To prevent certificate flooding attacks, modern key servers prevent uncontrolled distribution of third-party certifications on certificates. To make the key holder the sovereign over the information over what information is distributed with the certificate, the key holder needs to explicitly attest to third-party certifications.

After the attestation has been created, the certificate has to be distributed, e.g. by uploading it to a keyserver.
