I've had this problem in the past. There are 2 issues. First of all, as far as I can see and test, _SIG_KEY should not be actually empty, but fixed to this value: CONFIG_MODULE_SIG_KEY="certs/signing_key.pem" That's what will get autogenerated. Then, make sure that building the debugging symbols is disabled so that dh_strip doesn't run, otherwise it will remove the signatures from the modules as well as the symbols. There is also a patch to workaround the issue without disabling the -dbg packages. See: https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=852715 -- Kind regards, Luca Boccassi
