@implementation UCIsolatedVerify

// Confirm the file is a signed package
// `SecStaticCodeCreateWithPath` does not work with packages, only code. So `SecCodeCheckValidityWithErrors` is not available to us.
// `spctl` tool can verify packages with the `-type install` flag. The open source code reveals tool uses a System Programming Interface (SPI)
// SecAssessmentRef for this. The code is within libsecurity_codesigning and not available for us to link against.
// That leaves the pragmatic approach of calling out to `spctl` directly and parsing the `raw` property list output. Doing this from a
// sandboxed process returns an error because `spctl` can not communicate with its own XPC service. Sandboxing has removed the ability
// to verify if a package file contains a valid signature.
// On macOS 10.13, package verification can only be performed by a non-sandboxed process.
