MD5 support in the PBI Creator

Reported by: gerard Owned by: Kris
Priority: major Milestone:
Component: PBI Creator Version:
Keywords: pbi, md5, pbi creator Cc:


Several people have suggested to use digital signature and integrity check
for PBIs to make sure PBIs come from pbidir for instance. The public key
in this case would be hosted on pbidir. PBI Creator would have to import
both keys to build the PBI. Other PBI web sites or software vendors could
host their own key on their own web site the same way.

I have written a feature somewhat similar to this. When a PBI is created it now embeds an internal md5sum into the config, and uses it to confirm that the data has not been corrupted or tampered with since creation time.
