Linux Means Business: Security and Authentication with Digital Signatures
This scheme reduces the security requirements in the labs, but increases the precautions that need to be taken in the Field Staff's offices. Their PCs will have the secret keys on them, and plans should be made for when a computer is “compromised”. A possible fix is to give each education center a separate key set and put all possible public keys on the servers. If a system/key/passphrase is stolen, that particular key set is revoked and not used any more.
