That reminds me of `debrsign`. From it's manual page:
| DEBRSIGN(1) General Commands Manual DEBRSIGN(1)
| debrsign - remotely sign a Debian .changes and .dsc file pair
| using SSH
| debrsign [options] [user@]remotehost [changes-file|dsc-file]
| debrsign takes either an unsigned .dsc file or an unsigned
| .changes file and the associated unsigned .dsc file (found by
| replacing the architecture name and .changes by .dsc) if it
| appears in the .changes file and signs them by copying them to
| the remote machine using ssh(1) and remotely running deb-
| sign(1) on that machine. All options not listed below are
| passed to the debsign program on the remote machine.
I hope this helps.
