I do not understand this problem. I tried my code down below. It says,"can only sign or verify one file."

Instructions: Using the hash function SHA‐512 and the key generated in Step 5, sign the ciphertext cipher.bin produced in Step 3 and the encrypted session key cipherSK.bin from Step 4. Output the signatures to files named sigCipher.bin and sigSK.bin respectively.

This is what I tried.

openssl -sha512 -sign cipher.bin cipherSK.bin -out sigCipher.bin sigSK.bin

Let me know if you need the whole instructions.
