               verify(1,8) [-signature file(1,n)] [-out file(1,n)] [-data file(1,n)] [-cf file(1,n)]

               -signature file(1,n) Signature file(1,n)
               -out file(1,n)       Output file(1,n)
               -data file(1,n)      File containing signed data
               -cf file(1,n)        CA's certificate file(1,n)
               -cd certsdir    CAs' certificates directory
               -print_data     Print Signed Data to outfile
               -verbose        Verbose output


NNOOTTEESS
       The signature file(1,n) is the file(1,n) containing the PKCS7 structure to be
       verified. Now it is possible to verify(1,8) only PEM formatted pkcs7, such
       files do have header and footer lines as follows:

       -----BEGIN PKCS7----- ASDADSSDASDASDa....  ...................
       ....DSDSADADSADS== -----END PKCS7-----

       Providing the -cf file(1,n) usually will fit for most applications, however
       if(3,n) you have chained certificates you can use the -cd certsdir to spec-
       ify the directory where CA certificates (and hashes values) are kept.
