+ - OpenBSD Moving Towards Signed Packages — based on D. J. Bernstein crypto

Submitted by ConstantineM
ConstantineM (965345) writes "It's official: "we are moving towards signed packages", says Theo de Raadt on the misc@ mailing list. This is shortly after a new utility, signify, was committed into the base tree. The reason a new utility had to be written in the first place is that gnupg is too big to fit on the floppy discs, which are still a supported installation medium for OpenBSD. Signatures are based on the Ed25519 public-key signature system from D. J. Bernstein and co, and his public domain code once again appears in the base tree of OpenBSD, only a few weeks after some other DJB inventions made it into the nearby OpenSSH as well."
