Sorry, it's still not clear to me. Do you mean you would use FIT in that
case (it supports signed configurations)? Or do you mean that you are
using several formats, one of which uses signed/encrypted configurations
of kernel/initramfs/dt?

I want to understand how your image formats would be used in the larger
context of a BSP or distribution. Please describe which image formats
you want to support (in addition to FIT). How are they structured? How
are they generated? Are they already supported by other software?
