then the code in the OS can be compromised by spying eyes.
If the N.S.A. say wanted to fetch your Credit Card details
they would only need to download a patch that transferred
the Private Key encrypted by their key together with the R.S.S. secure data
The R.S.S. system generates 2 large prime numbers, the clients
Private Key, and sends the product of the 2 numbers multiplied
to the other computer. The product, 1 larger number is the PUBLIC KEY
so anyone can send private data to whoever releases their PUBLIC KEY
and if they keep their 2 PRIVATE KEYS well.... private! Then the
system is secure. I'm not sure how an autoupdating OS could ever
be secure. Even with OPEN SOURCE there are a million lines of code
to hide the code that transmits the private keys.
