Client Security Quickie

As you may be aware, and certainly are if you have reason to be, I am somewhat fanatical about information security. It's a habit that's been with me for just about 35 years now, so it has become second nature. I was thinking just a few minutes ago about a hole in my security practices that requires an unconventional approach to remediation, and the result is here.

If you have reason to be concerned about the security of data that you own that I store for you, you might wish to periodically look in on that file and verify its cryptographic signature. If you don't have my public key, it's here. It would be a good idea to grab it long before you need it, and to rely upon it only if you've independently verified its validity — perhaps by talking about it on the telephone with me.
