Hi.
let me rewrite my understanding for postMessage.

let's assume
Key-A has origin-A and no Key is associated with origin-B.

if an user visit origin-A
user is able to generate signature with Key-A
and send it to origin-B via postMessage.

if an user visit origin-B
user is unable to generate signature with Key-A
and has nothing to send via postMessage.

normally original text for signature will be prepared by origin-B.

I'm not trying to be negative attitude.
just I'm trying to find acceptable solution for my use case.

still I need help.

regards
mountie.
