I understand that rbs encrypted files are very easily cracked, and because of that the RBE encryption was introduced in 2017. I also understand that in order to prevent the RBE encryption from being cracked the encryption is done after the extension is submitted. Obviously there is no tool available that developers can use to encrypt the files themselves, because then someone could create a tool to also decrypt the files.
If I want to build an installer for my extension that includes RBE files, how can I do that? Must I submit my extension first, then download it after it goes live, just so I can get the RBE files needed to create my installer? Or is there a way that I can submit my extension, and request encryption without having it go live in the warehouse? Previously I simply published my installer using rbs files, that I could make myself.
