- the checksums for netinstall images are signed with a Fedora key
- the corresponding public key is made available through https
- therefore the integrity of installer images can be verified

Obtaining an SSL certificate for fedoraproject.org shouldn't be much
easier than getting your code signed to run under Secure Boot. Not
checking RPM signatures seems to be the weakest link here.

What am i missing?
