There seems to be a security problem here. To be able to sign a jar one needs the private key and the private key should be owned by and very private to the person who generated it. It should certainly not be downloadable for anyone to use to sign something.

Since you have downloaded the application I would expect either all the jars to be already signed or if you are building from the application source that you will generated your own private/public key pair and sign using this private key.
