As for the current status quo, i.e. PGP, see [2,3], it would be fair
hold PGP (GnuPG) to the same standards... Based on its history of
vulnerabilities I don't really trust it for anything. I'm sure you can
use it safely if you are an expert and don't use key servers, but well,
I don't trust myself with PGP... That is also the main reason I am in
the process of switching to signify/Minisign for my own projects.
Thanks for posting this. I haven't gone into the weeds regarding PGP
vulnerabilities, but completely
agree that PGP is absurdly complex to use. Minisign looks to be a simpler
alternative that most likely
will grow in popularity once people are educated about it. Seems like a
good idea to also include it in the guidelines.
