The Statement of Accomplishment issued by the Team is signed by a gpg key so that it can be validated independently by anyone who has the public key. For independent verification OpenEdX uses what is called a "detached signature" meaning that the signature for the Statement of Accomplishment is contained in a separate file with a ".sig" extension.

To complete the verification procedure you will need the following three files:

Ensure you have the pdf, the ".sig" signature file and the public key copied to a single directory before you begin.

Import the public key on OSX using GPG Keychain

Import the public key on Microsoft Windows using gpg4win

Verify the Statement of Accomplishment using gpg on both OSX and Windows
