Armory Wallet Review 2020: Fees, Pros, Cons and Features ...

Are we overlooking pgp verification of wallet installation files?

I am curious how many people use pgp to verify the new version of their favorite wallet software every time a new version comes out? To me it seems like pgp verification isn't taken very seriously. Most, but not all vendors will put out new pgp signature files with each new release however if you are relatively unaware of security this could mean you are unknowingly missing a very important step. Importing the authors pgp key, downloading the associated signature file and then verifying the executable isn't very obvious to those who aren't security savvy. However it is an obvious security hole and a potential honeypot for anyone looking for some easy coin. One thing I find disturbing is how few of the major wallet developers put any significant effort into educating their users on the first step of securing their hot wallet. Multibit and armory are the only two clients I know of that give any information on pgp verification, but even multibit misses this important step on their "How to install" page. Electrum doesn't even provide a signature file for their linux version instead providing a hyperlink with an md5 hash appended to it. Bitcoin-qt from what I can tell only provides sha256 hashes of their files with zero instruction on how to use them. To me it seems like the pgp step of securing a wallet is looked at as the boring minor tidbit that you have to have that nobody really wants to put time into resulting in most vendors throwing up some hashes/signatures with little to no information on how to use them. I think that all vendors should have a section with instructions on how to verify their software, put this as the second step in getting started with their software right after the download step and make sure to provide pgp signatures for each installer package and not just hashes. For me, not being a security expert, I feel much safer verifying a pgp signature vs checking that a hash matches. With bitcoins being targeted on a daily basis through incredibly creative means this seems to me like a giant gaping hole that could be fought with a very small amount of education. Just a thought.
Edit: because I suck at the grammar Edit: after digging around I found the electrum signature files for linux. There is no direct link to the page from their website but they can be found here: http://download.electrum.org/
