Hi, I've recently created this simple repo:
... which is an attempt to somehow addresses a problem of software and firmware
"verifiability" (the word is somehow loaded, hence in quotation marks).
I imagine that once more and more vendors, such as e.g. Tails or Subgraph, or
secure messenger app devs, or various firmware projects (coreboot, Trezor,
OpenWRT, etc) agreed to stick to this format, we could expect each of them to
submit hashes + signatures with each new release of their software. These
hashes would then be subsequently verified and submitted by other witnesses.
Each person or organization will be free to host a repo similar to the one
above, only with the "proofs" from the select witness they consider somehow
trusted or meaningful.
Any comments welcome!
