    to understand it - you want to have separate sis installation file with the configuration?

    It is possible - sis configuration file can be self-signed, the limitation is that the configuration file must be in some public folder, e.g. c:\System\Data, so in your pkg will be something like:
    "file.conf" - "!:\system\data\file.conf"

    The config file does not need to be in a public folder, it can be in
    \private\<your application uid>\import.

    Obviously your application should still check for spoofing as the data file could have been tampered with by altering it before the config sis file was built and installed.
