   * `expires`: The number of seconds the signature remains valid after being generated.
   * `signer`: A nested object describing the "identity" (aka "principal" or "signer") that
generated the signature:
-  ** `nickname`: A brief human-readable name for this identity. It can't be trusted to mean

key, and `data` is the base64-encoded key data itself.
