Follows up #6441

When we download the latest piwik release over HTTPS, we could also check that the PGP signature is valid.

Note: not sure how it would work or if it's even possible, but there you go

(Deleted my previous message, there's a better way.)

You can do verification with the openssl command. For example, here's how I manually verify Sparkle updates:

sparkleVerify() {
    # echo "Verifying $ARCHIVE signature $SIGB64 with key: $DSAPEM"
    SIGFILE=$(mktemp -t sig)
    echo -n "$SIGB64" | base64 -D > "$SIGFILE"
    openssl dgst -sha1 -binary "$ARCHIVE" | openssl dgst -dss1 -verify "$DSAPEM" -signature "$SIGFILE"

If you're curious as to how to actually create the keys and the signatures, look at how Sparkle does it. If you use this method then verification will work with the example I gave above.
