PSU MacAdmins Hackathon 2016
Biggest time saver
Hancock is a GUI tool for signing packages and mobileconfig files. First it looks through your keychain for all certificates that can be used to sign, then signs the files using the selected certificate.
It can also unsign mobileconfig files, giving the user the ability to then read or make changes to mobileconfig file already signed.
At least one certificate with a private key installed. This could be an Apple Developer certificate or as simple as a free Comodo email cert.
Select a valid certificate from the dropdown. !(./imgs/Screen Shot 2016-06-29 at 10.26.07 PM.png)

You will get prompted to allow access to your keychain. Choose Allow or choose Always Allow, if you plan on using that certificate again. !(./imgs/Screen Shot 2016-06-29 at 11.40.32 AM.png)
Choose where you want to save the signed file.
Any certificate listed in the drop down can be used to sign. The icons tell you if the certificate is fully trusted by the system or not.
If you want to make changes to a signed mobileconfig file, or it you want to view the contents you will need unsign the mobileconfig file first. This can be accomplished by clicking the Unsign... button and selecting the mobileconfig file to unsign. *NOTE: Unsigning pkgs is not supported.
This project was inspired Nick McSpadden's Profilesigner. A command line utility for signing mobileconfig files. If you're looking for a cli method I suggest you check it out.
