Subject: better (more secure) gpg module signing
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 774b
Hi, regarding "OpenPGP Best Practices" [1] the hkps protocol should be used to retrieve keys. As the protocol (scheme) is hard coded in Module::Signature [2] you can't use a secured connection to retrieve keys. Is there any reason why Module::Signature at all pass a --keyserver option to gpg instead of using the keyserver from the gpg.conf? Also, Module::Signature use SHA1 as the default cipher [3] which is considered insecure for years. You should really switch to a more secure default cipher.
