LXer: Digital Signatures Can Lie To Linux, OSX and Windows Users

Published at LXer:

Digital signatures were designed to allow secure, confidential communication between two parties. As Wikipedia describes it: 'A user may digitally sign messages using his private key, and another user can check that signature (using the public key contained in that user's certificate issued by a certificate authority). This enables two (or more) communicating parties to establish confidentiality, message integrity and user authentication without having to exchange any secret information in advance.'
