/*
* XXX
* When PGP-signing a file, we only sign a SHA-1 hash of this file
* The DSA key size requires that we use an algorithm which produce
* a 160 bits long hash
* An alternative is RIPEMD160 , which you can use by giving the option
* --digest-algo RIPEMD160 to GnuPG
*
* As soon as SHA-1 is broken, this method is not secure anymore, because an
* attacker could generate a file with the same SHA-1 hash.
