Attacks against GPG signed APT repositories - Packagecloud Blog

It is a common misconception that simply signing your packages and repository metadata with GPG is enough to create a secure APT repository. This is false.

The easiest way to prevent the attacks covered below is to always serve your APT repository over TLS; no exceptions.


This is excellent research. My faith in GPG sigs on packages is well shaken.
