 Can you tell me more about the open tool used for signing Mac OS X executables?

I have been working on font signing in the recently open-sourced microsoft font validator
(there is an official windows-only tool for signing fonts, but
apparently an open-toolchain based tool also exist in somebody's hard disk)

That although is part of an ISO standard for fonts, borrows heavily from microsoft's
authenticode excutable signing infrastructure. For those who want to know.
