Use/study TUF (The Update Framework) for security design
Created by: sptankard
In there interest of doing things the right way from the beginning, I think looking at TUF and potentially using some of the codebase may be a good idea (there's a rust-lang version). What TUF is:
The Update Framework (TUF) helps developers maintain the security of a software update system, even against attackers that compromise the repository or signing keys. TUF provides a flexible framework and specification that developers can adopt into any software update system.
