Hello all,

I just completed a new tool - secutil. It's a clone of the MS secutil tools
which extracts strongname and certificates from an assembly (so they can be
included in source code). Parameters and output should be identical to the
original secutil - except that it can extract the (authenticode) certificate
from any PE file (not just assemblies).

Note: the secutil tool doesn't return the public key inside the X509
certificate (as documented) - but the certificate itself.

It's under /mcs/tools/secutil.cs and should be built automatically along
with the existing tools (at least it's tested on Windows).
You need the updated X509Certificate.cs to extract the certificates.

Windows (MS.NET) both strongname and certificate works.
Windows (mono) only certificate works.

Can someone tells me if it works (build and run) on Linux.
