Hey I've been reading up on GPG keys and PGP keys and I had a thought. Does synaptic use any system on data encription or signing to ensure that data packets are not tampered with as you download them or that I'm not downloading a spoof file from a malus server.
I am probably not the first to think of this but I can't find any information on this subject.
Note: If this topic is taboo I'm sorry but I'm a security freak and I've been dealling with a hacker for the last 8 years and I want to make a super secure machine. If administration removes my post please send me an e-mail with links to relevent information or some information about how I can find out about this topic.
